The paddle will be from the 84th street dam on the Thornapple River downstream to John Zadvinskis house at 4920 Sequoia Dr SE Grand Rapids MI 49512. Meet at his house at 12:45pm so by 2pm we may have paddles in at the 84th street dam. It is a large parking lot so vehicles can be left there. The paddle is about 2.5 hours
On the way downstream we can briefly play in the 68th street rapids and if needed a bathroom break at the park. Once we end up at John's house any vehicles at the 84th street parking lot can be brought down. Bring your vest to wear and a towel, change of clothes if needed. Bring a dish or appetizer to pass. John will provide bottled water and wine. Non paddlers can arrive at 4:30 as trying to get everyone together to eat and mingle. Paddlers are welcome to stay as long as you want. There could be an evening pontoon cruise as well.
