Enjoy leisurely nighttime paddle on Caesar Creek to enjoy the Super Moon!

What is a Super Full Moon?

The distance of the moon from the Earth varies throughout the month and year. The average distance is about 238,000 miles (382,900 kilometers). The moon's position furthest away from Earth is called “apogee” while its closest approach to Earth is referred to as “perigee”. These events do not regularly coincide with the phases of the moon. However, it can happen that the moon is at perigee during the phase of full moon. This event is referred to as Super Full Moon.

The paddle will be approximately 1-2 hours and distance will be decided by the group.

We will meet at 8:15 PM and unload boats at the ramp. We will head north up the Caesar Creek or the Anderson Fork.

We should be out of the water 10:15 PM + or -.

Expect to spend about 1.5-2 hours on the water.

    Kenny, Thanks for organizing. It's great to be out on the water in the evening. A very different experience! I don't know how you got such a good picture of the moon - though the moon turned out to be one of the lesser highlights of the paddle. Excellent group to paddle with!

    Rob mentions we should probably add something more about lights on boats as a discussion for this paddle. Rob's comments: "I know people have used glow sticks and other kinds of lights. Ohio law says you should have at least a white light on the rear of the boat. We should make sure they also have a headlamp for personal safety. Shouldn't run into any power boats unless we run out into the main lake, which is fun to do on these paddles."

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
