September Full Moon Paddle

Paddle from Wendy Park to Center Street Bridge and return to burn some driftwood at Whiskey Island. Not sure if a small bonfire is permitted, but we will look into it and a later hour at the park. Starting at 7 PM will open up the idea of a pot luck if enough folks are interested. Please comment and we will see where this meet-up goes.

    Thanks again to Amanda for coordinating the food and making the most tender pork I have ever had. While the paddle was shortened and the moon was hidden by the clouds the night sky did put on quite a show as seen in John Millers awesome picture of the Erie Night...

    Nice to have Cherl and Wes join out group and thanks again to Mike Miller for loaning me a paddle after my daughter headed to West 25th Street with mine in the way-back. Good to see everyone.

    Weather kept us from going out far and long! Food was good, but good people make it great!

    I hoped to attend, but the weather rules out paddling - still considering heading out to Whiskey Island if a get together is still in the plans...

    I have been talking with Gerry to plan the pot luck dinner. We thought it would be best to have dinner, then paddle and then return and hopefully have a campfire. We can have beer and wine at the beach as long as we purchase it at the Sunset Grille. I will go early tonight and speak with security about whether or not we can have a fire and will post findings tomorrow. I am changing what I am bringing but will still supply napkins, plates, flatware, etc. I am going to be making pulled pork sandwiches. It would be helpful if others could pitch in and bring the following:

    appetizers (2)
    cooler with ice and bottled water
    side dishes (2), maybe a salad and a carb?
    vegetarian entree alternative
    dessert

    Please post what you will be bringing so we don't have duplicates!

    A light will be required for each boat. My understanding is that a white light is sufficient. If anyone has further details per the ODNR or otherwise please advise...

    September 17, 2013

    • Chris F

      Two types of lights are required for boating at night on Lake Erie: 1) strobe light (USCG approved) for visual distress,
      and
      2) Running lights or electric torch or lighted lantern! I have a strobe light (visual distress use only) and a small white light (to avoid collision), to turn on from dusk to dawn use!

      Some people use running lights, but I don't have or use them!

      September 17, 2013

    • Ryan P.

      Red and green front lights are advised but not required

    Hi Gerry ! Karyn and I are planning on attending.

    September 17, 2013

  • Amanda Prescott B.

    Hey Paddlers- think we need to start planning the potluck! I am going to bring an appetizer (not sure what) and a slow roasted pork shoulder with rice. I can bring cups, dishes and flatware. Hopefully it will be clear so we will have a beautiful sunset and view of the moon!

    September 15, 2013

  • Gerry H.

    Changed date from Thursday to Friday....

    August 31, 2013

  • Amanda Prescott B.

    I'll be there- and vote "yes" to potluck idea! Sounds great- hope the pyro in me hopes we can have a fire!!

    July 29, 2013

    • Chris F

      Gerry would like that too! That way he could clear part of the beach for our launch again!

  • Joe T

    I heard that after sunset some type of light is required for a kayak. Has anyone else heard of that?

    August 17, 2013

    • Bill O

      Joe, All vessels are required to display running lights or an anchor light between sunset and sunrise (p.16 Ohio Boat Operators Guide.
