Perseid Paddle

August 8, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

See event website

The Perseid Meteor Shower should be approaching its peak.  We’re talking 60 to 70 meteors per hour!  All we need is a clear night and a dark sky.  And we happen to know of a certain island in Espy where it gets very dark indeed …

Chris Ehmer, of Susquehanna Adventures, has cut a meadow onto his upper island that should provide us with plenty of open skies for stargazing.  He’s also arranging for some live music before the celestial show,  and is catering a cookout supper! He’ll even ferry over our camping gear and shuttle us up to the put-in!

Meanwhile, Turkey Hill Brewing said they’ll deliver any crowlers we order to be shuttled to the island for the special price of just $5 each, including tax!  We’ll post the menu when they send it to us.

Don’t want to spend the night? That’s O.K. – the island is right by the takeout, so you can paddle back to your car in a few minutes whenever you’re ready.

The price is $65 for everything, including a rental kayak.  Have your own boat but need it shuttled up to the put-in? Then it’s just $55.  Don’t need a shuttle for your boat? Then the price is down to $50.

Register here.

Questions? Contact our Fearless Organizer, Chris Donato,  at 570-204-8689 or chrisdonato82@yahoo.com. And be sure to tell her thank you when you see her!

Date:  Saturday, Aug. 8, provided there’s no flood! (Granted, the star gazing will be ruined if it’s raining. But we’ll still have good food, good company and good music!)
