Paddle Black and Red this Saturday!


Paddle Black and Red this Saturday!

Paddling in red.

Stop the presses!  This just in:  It’s time for another edition of Paddle Black and Red, our red-lights-only new moon night paddling trips.

Last October, we decided to try something different than our usual full moon paddles and do a trip on a new moon instead.  Only red lights, to preserve night vision and make it awesome.  Everyone had a great time, even Mike, who ran into a tree or two.  (He was fine, and his GoPro didn’t even fall off.)  Well, it’s a bit short notice, but we just looked at the calendar and noted that Saturday is perfect for another, so here we go.

Launching: Ward Creek at South Mall Drive (off Siegen), meet to launch at 7pm.
Landing: East end of Camp Drive, Prairieville (approximately), 10-ish (perhaps 11 on a slow night).
Length: Eight miles of easy downstream paddling on Ward Creek and Bayou Manchac.
Logistics: For pre-trip shuttling or two-car instructions, reply here, call, or email to set things up.  For post-trip shuttling, no worries, we leave no one behind.

You do not have to be a member of PaddleBR to join us for this fun event, but if you’re not a member, please consider a small optional donation ($5, perhaps) to help offset insurance/expenses.  Or even better, get your membership in person Saturday or anytime at
