>>> This is a shuttle event so please do NOT be late, 9am
>>> Go to Sargents Park first and drop off your kayak, then drive to Morris Bridge 13330 Morris Bridge Rd, Thonotosassa, Fl 33592 and return to Sergeant Park and launch from there. One or two drivers would have to volunteer to drive the kayakers back to Sergeant's.
Per Canoe Escape, the vegetation after Morris Bridge Park is too dense to paddle. We will have to exit at Morris Bridge instead of going further to Trout Creek. We can lengthen the trip by taking a tributary right outside Sergeant Park and then head down to Morris Bridge where we can have lunch.
Cost: County parks charge a $2.00 parking fee.
If you want to rent a canoe or yak, you can make reservations with Canoe Escape at [masked]. They are at Sargents Park.
What to bring: water, food, camera, PFD.
>>> need volunteers with big cars to shuttle people from Morris Bridge back to launch point at Sargents. It will be only 1 trip each. Please post or email me. Vans eagerly accepted
