Alum Creek Boating Event (ACBE)
Tuesdays @ 6:30 PM, June through August
For years many boaters have made the pilgrimage out to Alum Creek Beech every Tuesday @ 6:30 PM, June through August, to practice strokes, rolls, and rescues. This year we will continue to trek out to the beech every Tuesday, but we have added some fun new events. There will be a photo contest, demos of common mistakes swimmers make, information on best trips to paddle based on your skill level, kayak soccer, a raffle, prizes from The Outdoor SourceTM, and more.
The Outdoor SourceTM will also come out with some of their latest equipment from their new Polaris location for you to try out. Check COP’s new Meetup.com site for event dates.
All skill levels are welcome with participants providing their own boats, although Outdoor Source will provide boats and equipment on some demo days. Participants are required to sign a standard COP liability release at the event. ACBEs are at the NORTH end of Alum Creek Lake State Park Beach. This is the part of the beach furthest from the dam on the west side of the reservoir.
