Family Bible Church has reservations with Cave Country Canoes on the Blue River for a half-day canoe trip on Saturday, June 9. We will depart from the parking lot of the I.G.A. grocery store at Booneville-New Harmony and Hwy 41 at 8 A.M. on June 9. It is about a bit under a two hour drive. Here are some things you will need to know about our trip, and a link to the F.A.Q. page for Cave Country Canoes:
The paddling is not terribly strenuous–even if you can barely steer a canoe and struggle to navigate your rubber ducky in the bathtub, you will still manage to get down the river. The Blue River is very calm, but with enough current to move everybody down stream and provide some spots for a swim for those who wish to along the way. We will bring our own lunches in coolers in the canoes. Please pack your own lunches and plenty to drink. We will find a beach somewhere on the journey and eat together. For other information on what to bring, see here (see Pack It, Store It, Wear It” etc.). Canoe rental rates are $19 per person, assuming two paddlers per canoe. A third person may ride free in any canoe as long as they are under 13. Children must be at least 3 years old to participate and over 30 pounds. If your child is over 3 but under 30 lbs. they are welcome, but you will need to provide your own life vest. More information about the trip and questions you may have can be found here.
Hope you will join us, it should be a great day.
