Connecting all kids to outdoor edcuations opportunites is more important that ever!
If you have time/space in the upcoming issue, Paddle Perry would like to invite everyone to help us promote outdoor education by sharing selfies/pictures of your outdoor activities – whether you’re reading a book, exercising, or grilling out, show us on Instagram and Facebook by tagging @paddleperry and using #MNGreatRiverRace.
Be sure to post by Sept. 16th, 2020 WITH those tags to be counted in the 10 day Virtual Great River Race. Let’s get Paddle Perry on the map with another great cause this fall. Thank you!
And don’t forget to join us Sept. 17 at 6 p.m. for our final SUP yoga class of the season at Matilda’s Event Barn located at 13222 E County Rd 1025 N, Evanston, IN 47531 Tickets are on sale now with Everbody’s Fitness Center in Tell City. Get outside and move more!
Other upcoming events are Sept. 12 at 6 p.m. launching from the Derby boatramp to paddle to Oil Creek and back before the Derby fireworks. We will meet at the Derby boat-ramp off of Hwy 66.
Launch time is 6 p.m. CST. That means we’re leaving the boatramp at that time. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to that time for safety instruction and to sign a waiver. You must have your life jacket and a light source in order to paddle with us on this one!
Please RSVP to this event as “Going” only if you plan on attending or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or text Kelly at (812) 608-0626We will paddle from the Derby boat-ramp back into Oil Creek and then back to the boat-ramp in time for the fireworks show. This is roughly an hour long paddle. The fireworks show starts around 7-7:30 (guessing).
