Poplar Tree Lake NIGHT canoe trip

Sorry, there are only a few spots left open - most were already taken by non-members.  We will be joining others alreadly signed up for the trip.  (Howard, JT, & Julie are signed up - there are only 4 additional slots.)  PREVIOUS CANOEING EXPERIENCE IS PREFERABLE as this is a night trip.  We will get to see nocturnal animals and hear a frog chorus. 

This is a night paddle on Poplar Tree Lake - Cost is $5 per person (you pay at the park -  please have correct change and you must sign liability waivers) - bring bug spray, flashlights/head lamps, and water.  Canoes, life vests and paddles provided.  You are expected to help load/unload canoes/equipment off the trailer...

    My flight just got delayed, and I might not make it in time, so I'd rather err on the safe side and let someone on the wait list take my spot now.

      thx for updating... hope to see you soon

      July 20, 2013

  • howard

    REMINDER - if you can't make it, please change your RSVP and let someone else come. Sorry to those on the waitlist - you will not have a canoe. There were only 12 spots total and I reserved the last openings. So 5 were taken by others not in our group. If you want to take a chance and see if someone does not show up, come on out... Either way - looks like a beautiful evening (although WARM!). NOTE: there is LITTLE/NO CELL SERVICE IN THE PARK!

    What is the best bug spray to buy, that is ecofriendly?

    July 20, 2013

    • howard

      the most common is DEEP WOODS OFF - i recommend long pants/sleeve shirt

    I'll be coming from south of Memphis. How much time would you recommend I allot for getting through Memphis and up to the site?

    July 17, 2013

    • Constantina

      Hi David, it will take you a good 35 minutes depending on how "south" in South Memphis do you live.

      Howard I will be there with Mala and Mark and we have all our own equipment and boats.

    Hi! I want to go so much. I have been in a canoe once! I am a country girl and not afraid of much of anything. I would love to join you but if I don't have experience I understand. I was so sorry to miss the canoe trip this last Saturday but had a great long hike with Gavin and group at Herb Parsons. Can I attend this one or would you prefer I wait?

      I'm experienced with canoes. Sounds like there are some other folks who are, too. I'd imagine if you paired up with one of us we'd be able to keep you out of the water! :-)

  • Michelle K.

    OK I may have responded to early. I read this on my email from work, because they block Facebook I was unable to read the experience preferred part. I have only been in a canoe once, the last canoe trip this group did. So should I rescind my RSVP?

    July 10, 2013

  • Geoffrey

    Howard, is the number set in stone? If my son, wife, and I all have their own gear and boats can we join in? Always happy to make a donation.

    July 10, 2013

  • Geoffrey

    Can we bring our own kayaks?

    July 10, 2013

    • Geoffrey

      oops, I should have read the post below mine.
