May 20 6:30AM - 7:30AM

Boats should be on the beach by 6:30 AM.... ' cause that is when the shuttle leaves!

Be there early! This event is for experienced as well as beginner paddlers,
but it is best if you have paddled a kayak (or canoe) before.
We will meet at the Water Users Bus Stop #1 Parking Lot map and information about the Lower Salt can be found here http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5208044.pdf

As soon as enough people arrive, we will shuttle vehicles to the take-out
at Phon D Sutton Access Area. One driver will graciously agree to drive the drivers back to
Water Users.
Later arrivals may have to leave their vehicles at Water Users and ride back to their
vehicles after the paddle.
This event requires everyone to wear a PFD (Personal Flotation Device - life vest - life jacket) that is sized correctly and fastened and that no alcoholic beverages be consumed during the float.
NO Exceptions! A safety briefing will be given prior to launching on our float.
The main topics will cover "What to do if someone tips over!" and
"What to do if I tip over!"
This is for the safety of the group as a whole. Please bring the following in addition to providing
your own kayak(or canoe), paddle, and PFD. Tonto Forest Parking Pass per vehicle
