Day Paddle trip
This is the third New Members’ Event, and we want to meet you and tell you all about PSC. We will meet at Busse Lake for a pleasant paddle. We will play water games, practice our paddling technique, get acquainted, eat lunch.

You must have your own boat and paddles, and your properly fitted PFD must be worn at all times on the water. Bring lunch, drinking water, bug spray, and a change of clothes, which you can leave in your car if you wish. We plan to hit the water about 10:00 AM for about 3 hours of (more or less) organized activity; you can stay as long as you like. Bring a chair for the lunch break, if you like.

Please arrive at about 9:00 AM to allow enough time for everyone to offload boats, gear up, sign in, perform safety check and get ready to hit the water at about 10:00 AM.

The Busse Lake Boating Center is accessed from Higgins Road; look for the sign on the south side of Higgins just east of I-290.  GPS Coordinates: 42.024802, -88.016887.
