We will enjoy the afternoon on the river with a little paddling, a little floating and a lot of great music. Plan to bring your own dinner! We will build the fire, provide paper plates, napkins and roasting sticks for your convenience. We will also bring hand cleanser, recycling containers and trash bags.

  • OYO (own your own kayak): Gear drop 11 a.m. at the Perry Lake Spillway and then head to the bus in Lecompton
  • Renters:  Meet at Lecompton for bus check-in at 12 p.m.
