Hump Day Event....once a month on a Wednesday

Referring to Wednesday as "hump day” is a fairly modern tradition in American English. The term represents the idea that a week can be visualized as a mound or hill that a person climbs, with Wednesday typically being the middle or peak of the week.

TUBING IS IN!

This hump day we are changing it up a bit.

Tubing on the Colorado will provide a new adventure with your kayak buddies. For those who want the party to continue after tubing there is the Yellow Jacket Social Club down the street. Dress is very casual and dogs are welcomed.

Be ready to start the float at 6 pm. Special rate of 10.00 for rental and pickup. Call MOC to reserve your tube!

Developing our kayaking community one event at a time!

    Does anyone have any info on Kayaking the Upper Buffalo River Arkansas at the end of August?
    It is showing it's at a low river level but not sure if it's worth renting a kayak or not. Will be around Ponca/ Boxley Valley area for several days and want to get a kayak trip in but unsure as to what I can expect.
    Thanks in advance for any info you can give.

      Lori, upper Buffalo is not generally floatable in late summer, anything under 2' gauge at Ponca means you will scrape and have to get out and drag your kayak thru the gravel bars. Buffalo Outdoor Center (BOC) in Ponca can tell you if it is floatable if you call or go to their website. Good luck! --Craig

    I enjoyed meeting everyone. The group was really easy to talk to and it was a nice break in the week.

    Interesting how the group shifted from all women to 50/50. Tubing was relaxing....too relaxing for me. Imagine that.....

    It was nice meeting everyone! We did make a few memories on and off the river. Yellow Jacket Social Club was just the right spot river rats.

    Relaxing on the river in this heat, laughing and making new friends, seeing old friends is a treat. See you all Wednesday! Is anyone interested in stopping by the Yellow Jacket social club after tubing? Causal clothing is the dress code. The one and only time I was there I had just finished paddling 10 miles on the Colorado with John and Sandy.

    June 17, 2013

    • Dan

      Of course, all are welcome!

      June 17, 2013

  • MARY A.

    Still may join. During the week I have so few opportunities to kayak. There is one now competing with hump day though don't know group as well as I know you.

    June 17, 2013

  • Lori S

    For tubing, do we bring our own cooler ( no glass of course) , are mesh bags/trash provided ? Bungie cords to raft up w/each other?
    Are we bringing snacks/picnic foods to have at MOC before/after the rafting trip? Or do we bring some to have along the way while rafting?
    Just trying to figure out the plan...

    1 · June 16, 2013

    • MARY A.

      Lori, you so much smarter! Wouldn't have thought about those things until out on my tube! It will be fun and so looking forward to this!

    The summer beach party is in planning stages. Watch for details. Hump day is tubing! Two different events.

    June 12, 2013

  • Cathy K.

    Guessing the Colorado River will be warmer than the Guadalupe River. Watch for details about a summer beach party at "Secret Beech". Dan and I are working on the details. Right Dan?

    1 · June 10, 2013

    • Lori S

      So is the summer beach party the "Hump day event" or a separate thing? sorry...Im old and confused!!

      June 10, 2013

    • MARY A.

      Lori, I was confused also until I read the description for hunp day. I had same question. Tubing is hump day...summer beach I think yet to be firmed up.

      June 10, 2013

  • MARY A.

    I missed all the earlier tubing talk. Are we talking about Hump day? Or another trip. Hump day is great for me.
