Beach, Blanket, Bingo Kayak Picnic

YAY!!!!   Come join us for Beach, Blanket, Bingo Picnic!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDesGtp-JII

Let's work up an appetite trying each others boats in the waves.

• Or maybe you want to try a couple of self rescue techniques?  .

• Or bring something you want to sell? Kayaks? Paddles? Accessories? Bring it along.

Kick up Summer fun with a good old fashion picnic.

But I need your help.

All I'm asking is to bring something to contribute  to this event that we could all share.

We can list what your bringing as we go.

Hot dogs, buns, hamburgers, soda, ice, potato salad, watermelon, plates, cups , condiments, charcoal, aluminum foil, spatula, beach balls,  etc.

I'm the cook!

*It 's $5 into the park. So bring cash.

**I planned this event to be after  Fathers Day and before The 4th of July.

    Wonderful time, great food and I got to learn self rescues all the while entertaining everyone on shore! Thanks Hector and Pete!

    Where did you learn to use your GoPro camera like that, music and all? I have the same camera, and I usually wind up with files so big that I can't really use them on you tube or any other media, They certainly don't have music. I loved yours! Any hints on what I can do, or where I can go to learn how to create something like you did? Good job!

    Thanks.

      I'm still not sure if we'll be able to come. I have something I need to finish today and I'm still trying to figure out how to do that and go kayaking. :)

    If anyone has a few "extra" (inexpensive) paddles, would they bring them? I am bringing extra kayaks but realize I have loaned out or given away all of my "loanable" paddles (the rest of my paddles are kind of weird and/or specialized). I will bring some extra PFDs.

    I want to make sure I bring enough hot dogs. Is 30 the current number coming?

    When you enter the park drive towards the far corner of the boat marina by the park. Look for my orange Necky, "Hecky" Elaho Kayak on my car in the lot next to a small foot bridge . I will get there early to secure a table as near to the water as possible.

      Hi Ann, In past years we've been at the park till about 3pm but I can't promise or give you a positive answer to predict this. Too many factors ie. the wearher or the length of stay of each individual attending.

      June 17, 2014

    Does anyone have a paddle for sale? I will bring a salad for lunch.

    June 16, 2014

      I do have a paddle for sale, which I plan to bring -- along with a few other accessories.

      June 16, 2014

    Also I have some kayaks for sale listed under the Gear section of the Discussion area. If anyone wants me to bring one of those from them to try out, I will bring it.
