Come have a relaxing picnic and paddle Father's Day (Saturday) weekend with us on the San Bernard River at Bates Allen Park.

We can't have our regular monthly meeting due to venue availability.

I will bring the "Community" Grill and prepare Hamburgers, Brats, etc.
HASK will supply Cold water, Hamburgers and Brats . Everyone is encouraged to kick in with some kind of picnic items and condiments  like Hamburger and Brat Buns, Mayo, Ketchup, Pickles, Cheese, etc.. Let me know what you plan to bring, so that we have less duplication.
Bring a shade or "EZ-Up", if you have one.
I am looking for volunteer Trip Leaders to run short paddles up and/or downstream from the park.
There will be impromptu paddle instruction and mini-seminar discussions in the park about our favorite subjects. I ask that all available Instructor kick in and help improve our skills.
I'm sure there will be plenty of "Paddle/Fish Stories" bouncing around too.
If anyone can think of games silly enough for our group, bring them on!
Bring your lawn chair and cooler and chill out!
