Location finalized: We'll meet at Lake Minnetonka Regional Park, paddle around the islands and stop on Wawatasso Island for a picnic lunch, explore some of the 'informal' trails, and enjoy the day. Info about Wawatasso Island: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/13003786
This note is from the Park website: Wawatasso Island is located on Lake Minnetonka south of Enchanted Island and north of Smithtown Bay. It consists of about 34 acres and has long been a favorite beaching spot for boaters, and there are informal hiking trails. Bring something to drink while paddling and a sandwich or picnic-style lunch for yourself. After we tire of paddling, those interested may meet for a beverage somewhere.
We need a "State Fair" kind-of-event. To that end, I'm proposing a new event: "Paddle on a Stick". I'm thinking something along the lines of last year's Paddle & Picnic on Lake Minnetonka, but I'm open to any suggestions YOU might have. Something in August, bring a lunch, maybe include a little exploration hike, some adult beverages after.
