We are seeing a lot of kayaks out for a paddle Please be smart and wear your life jacket and a WET OR DRY SUIT. We don't want to accidentally lose anyone.
Acco...rding to the American Canoe Association, a cold water situation occurs anytime the water temperature drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit (16 degrees Celsius) or if the water temperature is above 60 degrees Fahrenheit, it occurs when the combined air and water temperature is less than 120 degrees Fahrenheit (49 degrees Celsius). In temperatures such as these paddlers need to dress for the water temperature, because an accidental swim could quickly kill.
Doors open at 6 program starts at 7. Light refreshments will be served: Bring a dish to share and your own table service.
