08/30/14 - Eagle Creek Park Paddle-O
Event: Annual "Paddle O" Special Event! PLEASE NOTE BOAT RENTAL INFO BELOW!
Date: Saturday, 30 August 2014
Location: Earth Discovery Center (the boat ramp off the EDC parking lot - follow signs for the EDC from either the 56th St. or 71st St. entrances to the park. Please note that standard park entry fees will apply.)
Overflow Parking: If you find the EDC lot to be full, park in the Peace Learning Center lot (just north of the EDC on DeLong Road).
Time Schedule: (Indianapolis is on Eastern Daylight Saving Time)
9:00am -- Registration opens
10:00am -- Start for all events
12:00pm -- Cutoff for 2 hour paddling event, and 2 hour foot event
2:00pm -- Cutoff for 4 hour paddling event
Courses: There are three course options: 2 or 4 hour paddling events, OR a 2 hour foot-only event.
Skill Levels: All skill levels are welcome, but this event is not quite as well suited for true first-timers to orienteering. Please come out and join us if you'd like, but there won't be a traditional "white" course designed specifically for first-timers.
Registration Fees: There will be on-site event-day registration, as usual. Fees for this event are $10/individual (or team, if you are planning on putting more than one person in a boat). As always, extra maps are available at $2/map. Also note that there is a gate fee for the park, so carpool if you'd like to save some money!
Boat Rentals: If you would like to rent a boat from ICO, you MUST contact us by Friday 8/29 at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know! Boat rentals are $5/boat through the club. Boats are plastic and can seat up to three people on a built-in middle seat. You are certainly welcome to bring your own boat as well (you will pay an extra $3 car-top boat launch fee along with your gate fee when you enter the park).
