CANCELLED: Two new events this weekend - including moonlight


Originally uploaded by Iron Bieso
Dave and Mary Finck invite all paddlers to a moonlight cruise on Friday, Sept. 24, on the Split Rock Creek in the Garretson City Park.

They will gather there around 7 p.m. and then cruise up the Split Rock above the dam in the park. The water here allows for some scenic cruising, and if you have never paddled in the dark, this is a good and safe place to give it a try. It's a lot of fun.

In addition, Mary, Dave, and Larry Braaten are hosting a trip on the Split Rock Creek starting in Brandon on Sunday, Sept. 26. They are asking paddlers who want to join them to do so around 1 p.m.

If you arrive early, do not unload your boats as the group will only gather at the park, then caravan to a put-in near Corson. I say again, meet in McHardy Park in Brandon, do not unload, then roll to the starting point farther up river on Split Rock.

There is one small portage on the Sunday route, but it's a good place for a rest stop. So join the fun.

Questions? Call Dave at 605-366-6844.
