MOONDANCE PADDLE: SATURDAY NIGHT ON THE LAKE

  • June 14, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Water Lilly Deb -Hope you don't mind, but I'm going to totally plagiarize your write-up! Thanks


Come join us for a beautiful Saturday moonlight paddle on Percy Priest Lake.  

We'll put in at Hamilton Creek sailboat marina and paddle around the lake to one of the islands. While on the island, we'll dine on the finest cuisine you can pack in your boat and watch the summer sun set and a waning moon rise. We'll hang out at the island and then paddle back after dark. No set end time, we'll figure it out!

Bring snack and beverage for an informal picnic on the island.

Getting there:
Take I-40 to exit #219 Stewart's Ferry Pike
SOUTH on Bell Road about 3.4 miles (through 4 lights)
Watch for the brown "Hamilton Creek" sign
Turn LEFT into Hamilton Creek Park-drive to the Marina
Meet at the Marina
Mobile:[masked]

PFDs are required out and back.

Bring at least 2 lights and check your batteries. A strong light inside your boat is a great addition, and makes us look really cool (and visible) on the lake at night.

Feel free to bring a snack and a beverage to tie you over until dinner.

The current forecast is for clear skies and temps falling to the low 70s in the evening with a slight breeze around 5 mph. It should be very pleasant. But, plan, dress, and bring extra gear in your dry bag. From experience, I know it's much easier to cool down than warm up on the water.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Are we building a fire? I could bring a few pieces of wood.

    1 · June 14

    • Mike T.

      Great idea, Sherrie...anyone who see this and can throw a log or 2 in their boat, please do!

      June 14

    • Crystal B.

      We have probably 2 or 3 logs we can bring, we will have a large canoe and can carry others if needed. :)

  • Maryellen S.

    If I can finished with my local 12-14 mile paddle on the Barren (new section of Barren for me to complete the length of the Barren from tailwater to Green River) and have time and energy to drive down, I might join you. Hope that would be ok. :)

    2 · June 13

    • Mike T.

      That would be great! I've missed paddling with you! Hope you can make it :)

  • Jeff B.

    I look forward to going on this trip. Have been a member of this group for many years but have not floated with ya'll yet. Its about time! Sounds like fun and I will be there! Will check my batteries!

    June 12

  • Wendi R.

    I have RSVP'd. Really excited. But is the paddle going to be a long one for a beginner like me? Can't wait!

    June 12

    • Mike T.

      Hi Wendi...long can be subjective, but most would not consider this particularly long or grueling. New paddlers do this one often. Look forward to meeting you.

      1 · June 12

    • Wendi R.

      Perfect! Thanks!

      June 12

  • Michael P.

    Any interest in organizing a group on a lake spot where we can watch the air show in Smyrna on Saturday. I know it's the 11th hour, but is it even possible to do?

    June 11

    • Mike T.

      HI MICHAEL. Sounds fun, but my plans are rather set for the day now...
