Paddle Down the Bayou 2015

Saturday, April 11,2014, 8:00 am
Chauvin, LA, at a private launch site 
about 1/4 mi below Clearview Mini Mart (across from Buddy Stringer)

Paddlers may paddle pirogues, canoes, kayaks, or other nonmotorized small boats. All paddlers MUST wear life jackets.

Cost: $30 and children 13 yrs. and under $25.

This covers the cost of shirt, food, beverages, insurance, and entertainment.

How the Trip Will Work:

The entire paddle trip is approximately 5 miles. After leaving the launch site, paddlers will have a rest stop at Chauvin Sculpture Garden, and then proceed to the take-out site at LLMap Camp. Paddlers must then pick up their boats and drive back up the bayou to the Little Caiilou Volunteer Fire Department for the after-trip celebration.

Launching

Paddlers should arrive at the launch site by 7 am to pick up tshirts and registration packets. Only those who pre-register
before March 27 are guaranteed a t-shirt upon arrival. Late registrants may have to wait for a t-shirt re-order after the trip. Paddlers must leave their boats at the beginning launch site. If there is no one that can pick up the paddler at the end site, paddlers must then drive their vehicles to LLMap Camp before the event and park there. They will be shuttled back by volunteer drivers using their personal vehicles. The last shuttle will leave LLMap Camp by 7:40.

Amenities

Breakfast snacks and beverages will be available at the launch site. Bottled water will be provided. A lunch will be served at the fire station, along with music, kid’s activities, and a Decorated Shrimp Boot Contest.
