08/15/15 - Eagle Creek Park Paddle-O

Event: Annual "Paddle O" Special Event!  PLEASE NOTE BOAT RENTAL INFO BELOW!

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)

1:00pm -- Registration opens

2:00pm -- Start for the 4-hour paddling event

2:00 – 4:00 pm  -- The 2-hour paddling event participants and 2-hour foot event participants can start anytime between 2:00 and 4:00 pm

6:00pm -- Cutoff for all events

Courses: There are three course options:  4 hour paddling event, 2 hour paddling event, 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 8/14 at info@indyo.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).
