New Meetup: Labor Day on the Imperial River

From: Colleen
Sent on: Monday, August 30, 2010 8:15 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for The Fort Myers Area Kayaking Group!

What: Labor Day on the Imperial River

When: Monday, September 6,[masked]:30 AM

Where: Imperial River
Riverside Park - South East side of US 41 Old US 41 - South East Side
Bonita Springs, FL 34133

If you have the day off and no plans for the day, come and celebrate the symbolic end of summer vacation and spend it on the water. We will put in at the boat ramp at Riverside Park and paddle upstream towards I-75. I may try to scout out a better place to launch from before Monday and repost. Check back before Monday morning for updates.

This should be an easy to intermediate paddle and people can paddle at their own pace and turn back whenever they feel like.... No Rules, except to be safe! The creek has some tight, windy parts which may be challenging for longer boats and depending on the currents sometimes has some rapids which are lots of fun, especially since we will be going up stream against the current and the run back is easier. We can grab a bite to eat at the end of the to be determined.

Bring water, snacks, PFD, sunscreen, and water toys. We should be able to find a place to take a dip...wear your bathing suit!
