Description: We are going to attend the Port Angeles Kayak and Film Festival on Sat. and Sun., April 12 and 13. For those who can start on Friday evening, we'll attend the welcoming party at the Barhop Brewery & Taproom in Port Angeles.
Festival Info: Info about the festival is at http://portangeleskayakandfilm.com
A great sounding variety of classes and tours will be available:
Meetup attendees should make their own festival classes and tours arrangements and registrations.
Overnight Accommodations: Three options stand out:
Red Lion Hotel, 221 N. Lincoln
Street, Port Angeles, WA 98362, http://www.redlion.com/our-hotels/washington/port-angeles/, across the street from Hollywood Beach, fifteen miles from Freshwater Bay and Crescent Bay, mixed TripAdvisor reviews, the eskimo roll classes will be in the Red Lion pool.
*** The event host will be staying at the Red Lion. If you choose to stay at the Red Lion, ask for the special Kayak and Film Festival event rate ... it is significantly lower than the regular rate and the AAA rate.
Olympic Lodge, 140 Del Guzzi Drive, Port Angeles, WA 98362, http://www.olympiclodge.com/, excellent TripAdvisor reviews, two miles from Hollywood Beach, where much of the activity will be, seventeen miles from Freshwater Bay and Crescent Bay, where the surf and rock-gardening classes will be.
Camping at Salt Creek Recreation Arera, near Crescent Bay and Freshwater Bay.
Note: Make your accommodation reservations early; the Olympic Lodge advises us that they and other hotels tend to fill up for this event, and likely the campground will, too.
Welcoming Party: A festival welcoming party starts 7:00 p.m. Friday evening at the Barhop Brewery & Taproom, 124 W. Railroad Ave., Port Angeles, WA.
Details and Activities: Details, activities, and carpools, if any, will be as arranged by the meetup participants. In addition to the kayak festival classes and tours, we may do some paddling on our own. Also, if anyone might want to hike some, bring your gear for Spring snow hiking, which is nearby.
