Join in on our Annual Holiday Paddle Party and WIN A NEW SEA KAYAK!
Wet Dog has just turned three years old and we're celebrating with a
Holiday Paddle Party and Kayak Give-A-Way!
The kayak we'll be raffling off is a New 14 ft Necky Manatou Sea Kayak. (not actual color)
Sponsored by Bill Jacksons Shop for Adventure!
The Plan: We'll meetup at Safety Harbor Marina at 4 pm. Decorate our kayaks (rented kayaks or your own) with holiday lights (battery pack lights), garland, etc, this is where you get creative. (prize for the best decorated kayak) Once the group is ready to put-in Rudolf (red kayak) will lead the paddle south from the marina across open flats to
Coopers Bayou and through the elusive mangrove trail. The trail curves around and takes us out on the other side of Clearwater Christian College overlooking the Bay. The festive armada will swing north, paddle past oyster point a be greeted by a spectacular sunset. The last leg of the trip is a short paddle back to the marina where we'll gear up for the party and festivities.
Note: Lights can be purchased very cheaply at Walmart or Walgreens. (no more then $7 can outfit your kayak)
Dinner at 6:00 PMish will be pot-luck style
(let us know what you would like to bring in your rsvp please) Wet Dog will provide plates, forks, cups and stuff. There is a nice pavilion with tables at the marina. After dinner we'll do a
Secret Santa gift exchange. (no more then $10 for a gift please)
