    Great fun! I was impressed at how Heavner funneled everyone through so quickly. The moon and the sounds of the night critters were wonderful and the food in town was delicious! Thank you so much for organizing!

    Hey all I live in the area and would love to join you. I go my own kayak but will be running late. Ill try to catch up with you on the river. No need to wait up for me. If I miss you I will try to catch you at the bonfire

    Hey everyone are you ready to paddle?
    Just a couple of things. Remember that you have to call Heavners to reserve your boat. RSVPing here does not reserve you a boat. Especially if you are reserving a Kayak. There will be other meetups going. Right now there are about 80 to 90 people going est.

    Mosquitoes are getting bad. BRING BUG SPRAY....

    If you are interested I am going early to hike some trails before the paddle. If you would like to join me meet me at the canoe rental next to the fence at 4 p.m.

      Will see you at 4 PM for the hike, Jeff. Then I will paddle with Mr. Wigneswaran.

      June 14, 2014

    • Rami H.

      I am leaving now, Jeff. I should be there by 4-4:05 please wait for me.

    Anyone looking for a canoe partner? I'd like to participate if you have a canoe or are planning on renting one.

    June 13, 2014

    • Jeff E.

      Hey Kathy, if you like to join us please do. We may be able to find someone for you to paddle with there.

      June 13, 2014

  • Jeff E.

    Hey everyone, I talked to Al Heavner tonight and he said that there are still canoes available. He also said that he may be able to get a few more single kayaks to rent. If you would like a kayak call Al Heavner at this number. [masked]-8274. See you on the river.

    • Jeff E.

      Also if you need a partner to canoe with we can find someone for you there.

    Hey, I was able to reserve a tandem kayak but no single kayaks were available. Is anyone ready to pair up with me?

    2 · June 13, 2014

    • Rami H.

      I would gladly join you. I am much better at kayaking than canoeing!

    Total novice in the kayak I reserved, but I've canoed before and am reasonably athletic, so I should be able to keep up. Looking forward to it!

    Hi all, I just edited this information by adding that you need to Preregister if you have not done so. Just call Heavner's and tell them you want to signup for the Moonlight Paddle and the date of the paddle.
