Paddle to the Moon... and back!

August 22, 2021

Smiles for Jake has been chosen as the beneficiary of this great event! We are also helping by gathering registration information and fees. The cost is $30 per person – regardless of if you are paddling/eating or only eating at Moonlight Bay. (There is no cost for children 18 and under to participate but they must be accompanied by an adult.) Additional donations are welcome!

This paddle is very gentle and follows the shoreline of Crosslake for a couple of miles from the Army Corp Recreation Area to the Moonlight Restaurant and back. We are escorted by motorized boaters and will have guides paddling with us along the way. Waves and wind may be a factor.

The event schedule will be as follows:

  • 5-6 pm: Check-In & Launch from Army Corp Campground, Crosslake
  • 7-8 pm: Meal and Socialization at Moonlight Bay
  • 8:15-8:45 pm: Depart for Return Paddle

GROUPS: If you are paddling with a group of family/friends (10 or less), each person must pre-register and pay online. If possible, please arrive and sign in together. A group leader will be assigned to you at the event.

If you have special needs, concerns, or specific questions please contact Jim Bergquist at 612-581-2144.
