Hello everyone,

Now we are only a little over a week away! We wanted to bring a few items to your attention that we think will make this event run smoother than ever before:

  1. You will find our rough schedule attached here as well as a waiver. Please look these over and fill out the ACA Waiver. You do not need to be an ACA member, but if you are please write in your number. BRING hard copies of this with you to registration on Wednesday.

  1. With the response from last year, we will be having Adam and Aidan crank out some KILLER FOOD for us again. The Street Tacos and Pasties were included in your registration. Our Local Whitefish Fish Fry by the boys is $15 and it was said to be the best ever by many who attended last year. That happens on Thursday night. We will also do Hot, House Crafted Breakfast Sandwiches each morning. Those go for $5 (yes, we have veggie on request). And of course COFFEE from The Kalamazoo Coffee Company! $3 for your mug filled.

  1. RETAIL – We will have a limited amount of Werner paddles, Astral Shoes and PFDs, and demo boats from CD and P&H. We STRONGLY encourage you to grab the little stuff from your local paddle shop! The effort and logistics does not translate for us to set up a shop at this event.

  1. THE NATIONAL LAKESHORE – The Park is becoming much stricter on it’s Group Use policies this year. So, we will be needing to manage our presence inside Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore a bit differently. Please be prepared to carpool and have your personally trailered boats loaded onto a Big Trailer. We will bring plenty of pool noodles to protect them. More details Wednesday night.

  1. EXPEDITION COURSE: If you are planning on participating in this course and have not heard from Keith Wikle, please let us know ASAP!

Summer is finally here! Our event is full and we are all super stoked to go paddling with each and everyone of you!

Please call me with ANY questions. Trey – (517) 927-3859
