Branson Area Fun Paddle June 12, 2008

Ozark Mountain Rowing & Kayaking Club’s Fun Paddle

Date: Thursday, June 12, 2008 @ 6:00 p.m.

Who: All interested paddlers, regardless of club member status. Visitors are welcome!

Where: Lake Taneycomo

Put-in: Next to Scotty’s Boat Dock at the south end of the Branson City Campground – boats will be launched from the “new” sandy beach next to the Dock.

Meet Time: 6:00 p.m.

Info: Paddlers or those interested in paddling can join this fun-loving group of kayakers for a refreshing paddle on beautiful Lake Taneycomo. This is an easy paddle for all skill levels, including beginners. This will be a leisurely 1 ½ to 2 hour paddle. We will launch the boats and travel to the east shore for a sight-seeing quiet paddle up Turkey Creek and then return to Lake Taneycomo to cross over to take in the water and fire show at Branson Landing before returning back to the launch site. All paddlers must wear a PFD while on the water. Please plan to be at the put-in so the kayaks will be in the water at 6:00 p.m.

Directions: From the Business Highway 65/Branson Landing Boulevard roundabout, head south over the bridge over Roark Creek. Continue south past the Bass Pro parking lot until the city campground appears on the left. Turn left into the campground parking lot before the overhead railroad trestle bridge. The spring flooding has washed away the gravel and left a good helping of soft sand which is natural for a kayak put-in just 25 foot north of the ramp onto Scotty’s Boat Dock.

Thanks for posting some info about our event.

Our kayaking club does some fun stuff including a New Years Day Paddle and Chili Dinner (called "Let's Brrrrring in the New Year"), full moon paddles, a "paddle and pamper" paddle (we paddle on Table Rock to Big Cedar Lodge, get a massage and have dinner together), together with monthly "fun" paddles on Table Rock, Taneycomo and Bull Shoals.

If you or anyone is interested in paddling in the Tri-Lakes Area around or in Branson, Missouri, contact me for more information.
