      What do you need beside the normal stuff for a midnight paddle?

      July 2nd      Moonlight Paddle on Lobdell Lake
      Meet at the public boat launch on Lobdell off Argentine Rd. South of Silver Lake Rd. Be ready to "get your paddle wet" by 6:45
      We'll do a short paddle to Navistar, expecting to get there before 7:30 for dinner.
      We'll do a longer evening paddle around the lake into Bennett and back to the boat launch.
      If you cannot make the 6:45 launch time meet us at Navistar on Silver Lake Rd in Argentine and launch from there.
      We hope to be back on the water by 8:45.
      Hopefully the moon rises early and is nearly as beautiful as it was last month.
