900 Volunteer Landing Lane, Knoxville, TN
This August's full moon will be the biggest and brightest full moon of the year. In fact, this month's full moon is known as a "Supermoon" because it will be especially close to the earth while its in its full phase, making it appear distinctly larger in the sky. And not that we need a full moon to get us out on the water for a little twilight paddling, its nevertheless a great reason to get together and admire the night sky from the vantage point of a paddle board.
For a little more info on what a Supermoon is exactly, here is the Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supermoon
On Sunday August 10th we will conduct two group paddles, both starting and ending at Volunteer Marina on Volunteer Landing Lane. The first paddle will take place from 6am - 7:30am to watch the Supermoon set over the Downtown skyline (Moonset 6:40am). The second paddle will take place from 8pm - 9:30pm to watch the Supermoon rise (Moonrise 8:20pm). This particular meetup event pertains to the morning paddle, and for anyone who attends, we will provide Starbucks coffee before and after the paddle.
For anyone who would like to rent a board from us for either of these paddles, please arrive at our shop (900 Volunteer Landing Lane) at least 15 min before the set departure time to get set-up. Standard 1hr rental rates will apply for both of these paddles ($19 for adults, $12 for kids 17 and under).
We hope to see you there!
