HUMP Day Happy Hour Take your Yak to Work day!

Take your yak to work with you!   Come explore the relative flat-water downtown after work on Wednesday June 12th.  The Art Festival is going on this weekend >> come checkout the waterfront.  The Ribs, Blues & Jazz Fest and Red, White & Boom are quickly approaching, so now is a great time to explore your unique viewing vantage points AND make some new friends!  Load up your yak before you leave for work, perhaps leave work a little early (mental health day?) and invite several yak friends to join us.  Depending on the level of interest, we can do something like this more often while it is still light outdoors! The JazzZoo event is also on the horizon... any other sites to consider?

Perhaps we can find a place to set-up a grill and socialize along the river!

There is parking available at the far west end of Nationwide Blvd.  The city has a boat ramp where you can drive down to the river to unload & unload.  You may be able to unload & load in front of COSI, but cannot park on the ramp.

    I am canceling today's scheduled HUMP Day Happy Hour Take Your Yak to Work event. The potential for extremely poor weather conditions warrant this cancellation. IF there is sufficient support to do so, I hope to reschedule in the near future.
    In the meantime, IF you are planning to go paddling and looking for company, please shoot me an email.
    Be safe out there!

      Hindsight! If only we knew it would even rain a drop here.

      Our luck, had we proceeded it likely would have stormed @ 4PM like we experienced @ 4AM. No regrets. The Kokosing should be high after the pounding that area received last evening!

    Depending on which local meteorologist who tries to scare the least number of people, we MAY have thunderstorms in the early evening. There is plenty of covered sidewalk space under the Main, Town and Broad Street bridges should it rain or storm... these usually pass quickly.
    I am not sure what the protocol is for canceling an event due to bad weather, so please check this site around 2:30 - 3:00 PM on Wednesday afternoon for the latest information.
    It is difficult to plan an event and have the weather cooperate 100% of the time! :-(

    We have no time schedule for a shuttle or any other time pressure... so when /if you can make it will be fine. A couple people will be bringing an extra yak for those who have not yet purchased their own...THANKS!
    I'd really like to get on a river or stream this weekend! After enjoying the Kokosing river on Wednesday, I am ready to go again!
