Everyone is invited to the 5th annual Father Flotilla Canoe Trip on Saturday, July 25, 2015.

This trip is for dads and kids of all ages, both boys and girls. Kids should probably be at least 5, but this will be up to the parents; it is important though that kids can float by themselves in a life jacket. Moms get the day off!

We are planning to start at the bridge just north of the Lake Zumbro dam and canoe to Zumbro Falls. This is a great stretch of river with excellent water clarity, several deep pools, many sand bars, and is good for the novice canoer.

Here is the tentative schedule:

  • 9:00 am – meet at the Angermans’ house
  • 10:00 am – hit the water, lunch, treats, swimming, and water fights
  • 5:00 pm or so – land in Zumbro Falls, car pool back to starting point
  • 6:00 pm – Cookout at the Angerman’s (Mom’s are invited), bring a dish to pass

We plan to have an organizational meeting at Whistle Binkies on the Lake sometime in June, date to follow later. At this point we are planning to have everyone bring their own canoes. If you don’t have a canoe, no problem; a couple of us should be able to round up some extras.

Feel free to pass this on to other dads.

Please contact Bill Angerman if you will attend or if you have questions.
