Last Thanksgiving we hosted a paddle and picnic for Team River Runner of San Diego (Team River Runner (TRR), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, gives active duty service members and veterans an opportunity to find health, healing, and new challenges through whitewater boating and other paddling sports). Here is a link to their web site: http://www.teamriverrunner.org/
Instead of repeating that this year, we have been invited to their paddle and fundraiser at Mission Bay on November 15th. The launch site is the beach next to the Marina (which is in front of the Barefoot Bar on Paradise Point. Registration donation for the paddle is $5 if you have your own boat, and Aqua Adventures is bringing some kayaks that can be rented for $15. If you want to stay for the party and auction, bring money for that.
NOTE: If you have a “slightly used” kayak, or equipment, and want to donate that to the auction, take it to the patio area in front of the Barefoot Bar before 10 am, and see Brooke Sullivan. Be sure to clean up the item first please.
If you have your own kayak, and want to take part in the paddle, party and auction, you may want to launch at Bahia Point, orAqua Adventures, and paddle to the Paradise Pt Marina for the 10 am start of their paddle. I think there is a cost to park at Paradise Point, and access to the beach may not be close from your vehicle.
