2nd Annual Sunset Paddle and Bonfire on the Beach

This event is just plain FUN.  So we're doing it again ! Shame on you if ya miss it!!

Join us for a kayaking/canoeing down the Chagrin River.

After the signing of the waivers and a short briefing on paddling techniques and safety, we will launch our boats and make our way through the Chagrin River lagoons to the lake.  On the beach we will mingle around the bonfire as we enjoy an evening picnic including toasted hotdogs, delicious side dishes and S'mores.  The highlight of the evening will be watching the sun set over the lake!

Following the beach party, our boats will be fitted with lights for a procession back to the livery in semi-darkness.  An awesome sight to see!

**Please do not be intimidated due to lack of experience!  There are always 'newbies' and the staff are wonderful.  They will give us the basics, answer any questions, and all the help we need to have a fun time!!  I hadn't kayaked ever and so very glad I tried it !  It really is a great time!



The livery is having a common problem when scheduling group events.  The livery does not take any other business when they schedule group paddles.  What happens is 30 people sign up for the group and 9 show up.  It's a problem and they have new rules for payment.

The entire $35 has to be paid to me.  Do not pay this thru PayPal.  I will accept cash or checks by mail.  Email me for details

There will be a $15 non-refundable deposit due prior to the event.  I will accept checks by mail, email me for details.  The remaining $20 will be paid to me the night of the event > CASH ONLY!

COST: $35/person     With your own boat:  $20 which includes:

A guided tour, kayak rental for a 2-3 hours, delicious picnic dinner with beverages and dessert, bonfire on the beach.  Fee is to be paid to the Livery. 

TIME: 6 pm.  You MUST arrive on time! Getting all boats and paddlers into the water and underway takes effort and coordination, and can be time-consuming.  They CANNOT wait for stragglers !!!!

**TO RESERVE A BOAT:  Call Lisa at[masked] (You can leave a message).  If you fail to do this you will not get a boat !!!!  Let her know you are with the Eastside 40's meetup group. 

**Age 18 and older please

**Alcohol is prohibited.

Please do not RSVP unless you are able to attend.  It's upsetting for interested members be turned away because an event is filled up only to have someone NOT show up.
