Registration/Boat Rentals: On site event day registration as usual, however if you would like to reserve a canoe you MUST contact us by Friday! Canoe rentals are $5/boat through the club. Canoes are plastic and can seat up to three people on a built in middle seat. Obviously, you are welcome to bring your own boats!
Fees: Fees for this event are $10/individual or team if you are planning on putting more than one person in a boat. (This is in addition to any boat rental fees.) As always, spare maps are available at $2/map. Also note that there is a gate fee for the park, so car pool if you'd like to save some money!
