Full Moon Paddle at Lodi Lake Boat House

This will be the first full moon paddle of the season. Meet at Lodi Lake park at 6:30 and drop off you kayaks and paddling gear at the boat house. Then take your car and park on the street, because the park will close at dusk. We will be on the water by 7:00PM and paddle for 2-3 hours. This is an out and back trip. Please bring headlamps or flash lights, but we ask that you do not use them during the tour. It makes it hard for the eyes to adjust and detracts from the experiance. If you would like to be spotted we recommend you get some glow sticks and attach them to your kayak. Someone from the Headwaters Boat House staff will be on site to open and close the gate, rent kayaks, and help guide the tour. This event is free if you have your own boat, but if you or someone you know may want to tag along rentals will be $25. Please call in advance to make reservations. [masked]-8367. Please dress appropriately, NO COTTON, and as will all Lodi Paddle Club Paddles, everyone must wear a PFD, and use the buddy system.

    Too bad I didn't know someone stayed behind....but gate was locked and couldn't get in...was my first time to Lodi Lake. I even left early, darn accident and one lane road 90% of the way. Next time, can't wait.

    This morning I called the Parks and Rec department to get more info on when the front main gate to Lodi Lake is supposed to be closed...apparently they use a site called http://www.sunrisesunset.com/usa/ to establish sun set and twilight. In hindsight we should have done a little extra planning, but it was apparent that the Parks employee closed the gate about an hour before they should have. I gave some feedback but also gained some good information to help us with planning Lodi Lake paddles in the future. The gentleman I spoke to was very nice!

      I spoke with the city and told them about the event. Somehow the wires got crossed. Partly my fault for not being there with keys to the boat house. We had a family emergency come up and I had to leave town.

    Warm weather and a really full moon to light the paddle.

    Bummer!!! I went to the boat ramp and got the kayak off the car, then drove back over to park outside the gate only to find out the park was closing at least an hour early. I went back to load the kayak and by the time I got back out to the gate, everyone was gone....?? By the way, try this:

    At arm's length, place your little finger along the horizon line, below the sun. Each finger indicates approximately 20 minutes (not a scientific measure). So if you can fit all four fingers, between the sun and the horizon line, you have about an hour until the sun sets.

      Marilyn, we were wondering where you went....we were there and saw you drive by! We figured you knew where you were going. Bill stayed at Lodi Lake so he was there until much later.
