Annual Turkey Burn – Distance and Fitness Paddle 2023🦃
Annual Riverbound Sports Turkey Burn Paddle
What to expect
Paddlers! Let’s go burn off that Turkey – or Tofurkey – or whatever excess calories you consumed on Thanksgiving! Previous years have been super fun, warm and calm. Most years prior have been super fun, warm and calm. Butcher Jones Recreation Site is the perfect launch beach and post paddle hang-out!
Plan to paddle from Butcher Jones Beach to Bagley Flat Campground (approx 8 miles round trip)
It’s an incredibly beautiful time of year to be at the lake. The air temps are still warm and the water is cooling off, but not unbearable yet. Brisk is the best word!
This is a free event! If you choose to join us, bring your own gear and enough sustenance to get you through 10-miles of paddling (board, paddle, leash, PFD, water, electrolytes, healthy and hearty snacks) If you need any rental gear, please click the ticket link, there is a fee to rent gear, but everything is included and we bring everything to the meeting spot. BOOK A RENTAL
We plan to meet at 9ish and then launch around 9:30 AM. The duration will depend on paddle speed, but we should be back to shore in 4-hours /-.
BRING TONTO PASSES TO BE SAFE, BUT PRIOR YEARS, THE FOREST SERVICE HAS MADE BLACK FRIDAY A TONTO FEE FREE DAY TO ENCOURAGE OPTING OUTSIDE! #optoutside #turkeyburnpaddle
