Lodi Lake Roundup/ Chris Laird Memorial Paddle
Join us for our 2nd Annual Lodi Lake Round-Up. This year the Round-Up will be dedicated to the memory of kayaker and angler Chris Laird. This is a free event to celebrate our paddling community and send a message to the world that Lodi is a paddle town, and a premier spot for flat water kayaking. The Paddle Out will honor the life of Chris Laird, a kayaker, fisherman & friend, who recently passed. 11 AM - 2PM Group photo & river paddle 2 PM Potluck & live music 3 PM Raffle We will meet in front of the Boathouse at 10AM and plan to have everyone on the water by 11AM for a group picture. You may launch from the Beach or the Boathouse dock, we will have a designated gathering spot on the lake. Bring a friend and lets try to break our record from last year! After the photo, we will head up river for a few hours of paddling on the Mokelumne. There is no real agenda for this, just a fun day of hanging out and paddling with like minded folks. After paddling we'll head to the Beach for a potluck! A main dish for everyone is being contributed but we suggest bringing drinks, snacks and desserts to share. (Items that need to stay cool can be stored in the Boathouse fridge or freezer during the paddle) Enjoy the afternoon relaxing at Lodi Lake, live music from the Headwaters Staff and a Raffle. Each participating paddler will receive a raffle ticket entering you to win paddling and kayak fishing gear donated by Headwaters Kayak and partnering brands. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for the raffle, all proceeds from purchased raffle tickets will be donated to the family of Chris Laird. We want it to be inclusive to everyone who paddles so Kayaks, Canoes, SUPs, or Rafts are welcome. We do ask that everyone participating wears a PFD, and follows boating safety rules for the river.
