Year End BBQ and Moonlight Paddle

As the season is moving closer to the end and freezing up soon it's time for a BBQ! So BYOBB! "Bring your own BBQ and Boat!" Very informal get together for a BBQ and then head out on the lake for a Full Moonlit paddle. Bring your BBQ and what you would like to have on it and maybe we can get a discussion going and get some salads and deserts organized. We will meet at the Driftwood day use area 3PM. Link to map attached. Go thru Canmore as if you are going to the Nordic centre and keep following it up to the lake.

    sorry I missed the event. The buckle on one of my tie downs broke on the way and I had to stop several time to keep re-tying the strap. By the time I bought a new strap in Canmore and made it up to Driftwood at 4pm it seems everyone had left. It sounds like everyone had a great time. Hopefully I will have better luck next time... See you next paddle season :)

      On Jenn! I was 5 minutes behind you. I had problems with my straps too. And when I got to Driftwood the same British (?) couple told me you had also asked about the kayak group 5 minutes earlier! :) hope to see you next time.

    Chris, unfortunately I woke up sick today, don't want to infect others, so I will have to pass on the BBQ and paddle tonight. Binnu, sorry I can't give you a ride today, but I will be able to in the future, as I live in Patterson and Crestmont is on my way out of town.

    What do weu mean by exposure gear? Chris approximately how far in is the day use area from the Canmore end of the lake? Just so I have an idea.

    Hi Chris. Discovered during last meet up that my little Pura can't really keep up with the 17+ ft sea kayaks. I don't want to hold anyone back so think I'll wait until next Spring and buy a big brother for the Pura.

    Hi Chris, I finally bought my boat.... Seaward Compass....very excited about it... unfortunately won't be able to make it to the moon light outing.... there is next spring! Enjoy it sounds like fun.

    Take Care.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
