    Only 5 days until Lac Du Bay Event

    To clarify for those asking, this is a social paddle, not a river trip. Yes, there will be a pie auction (not a pie throwing contest ! ) if enough pies show up. I travel past this route frequently and I do see Eagles, herons and other birds. Bring Binoculars and Cameras. Also, there is supposed to be a load of Walleyes right by our launch site. There are nice toilet houses. Parking is about 40 feet from the launch. Parking is ample. It's a GREAT place for a nice event.

    Please RSVP by May 15th.
