ConnYak Cedar Lake Practice

July 6, 2016, Cedar Lake Boat Launch Bishop Rd., Chester, CT

A casual gathering of paddlers most Wednesdays during the warm months on Cedar Lake in Chester, CT. No formal instruction is offered, but there are often friendly folks willing to help with whatever skills you might be looking to learn or refine. This is a very relaxed environment with much floating about and chatting. People start to show up around 4pm and most will stay on the water until they get tired, cold, hungry or it starts getting dark. Arrive anytime, we're easy to find - usually at the far end of the lake. All are welcome.

Paddling is typically followed by a simple Potluck in the parking lot. Bring a chair and a snack to share. On shorter or colder days, we often go for pizza.

Be sure to check the Connyak Bulletin Board for possible cancellations during the season (http://www.connyak.org/cgi-bin/BBS.pl/)

Bring whatever you need in the way of snacks and drink. Required equipment: PFD, 10-foot length of rope, and a whistle. For last minute cancels or if you are running late that morning, use the cell,[masked]-0528.

More anal directions, from the Rainbow River Watershed Association, are: From Simsbury, take Rt. 10 to Rt. 315 east to Rt. 189 east to Rt. 187 north. From Rt. 187, north of the Farmington River bridge, turn right onto Seymour Road and then make a right onto Rainbow Road. Then turn right onto Merriman Road.

ConnYak Cedar Lake Practice

Aug 24, 2016, Cedar Lake Boat Launch Bishop Rd., Chester, CT

A casual gathering of paddlers most Wednesdays during the warm months on Cedar Lake in Chester, CT. No formal instruction is offered, but there are often friendly folks willing to help with whatever skills you might be looking to learn or refine. This is a very relaxed environment with much floating about and chatting. People start to show up around 4pm and most will stay on the water until they get tired, cold, hungry or it starts getting dark. Arrive anytime, we're easy to find - usually at the far end of the lake. All are welcome.

Paddling is typically followed by a simple Potluck in the parking lot. Bring a chair and a snack to share. On shorter or colder days, we often go for pizza.

Be sure to check the Connyak Bulletin Board for possible cancellations during the season (http://www.connyak.org/cgi-bin/BBS.pl/)
