Going crazy yet with endless forecast of 5-10knots???

Starting this Thursday 8/6/09, the boyz at Watersports West will be hosting

"Paddle Daze Thursdaze" starting around 7:30pm.

Never tried a Stand Up? Want to get some excercise? Want to try out different shape and size boards? Want to have a friendly race?

We have a lots of boards and paddles on hand, but feel free to bring your own.

Location will at Keegan Claire Park on the intracoastal waterway next to the Holiday Inn.

You can meet us at the shop at 7pm and follow down, or just meet us there.

Directions to Keegan Claire Park: (from the shop)
Take Walsingham Rd towards Indian Rocks Beach
Go over the Intracoastal Bridge (Walsingham Bridge)
Once over the bridge, get in left lane and turn south on 2nd Street
Take 2nd Street all the way to the end past Holiday Inn and Keegan Claire Park will be on the corner of 2nd Street and Miami Ave.

The Park is small, but there is plenty of parking along 2nd Street.

We will go until dusk and DON'T FORGET TO BRING SOME BOOTIES!

Call me if your lost. 727-542-8022

Steve-O, will you be doing this every Thursday before (or during) wind season? What bar afterwards? Went to a similar thing up in Charleston, sponsored by one of the local shops, Half-Moon Outfitters. They have it every Wednesday then hit one of the local watering holes afterwards. They worked out some sort of deal for drink specials. It was very well attended.

Wish I could do this one, but I'm on call. Hard to get back to North Tampa from IRB in 30 minutes! Next Thursday if you're going to do it again.

The park is right next to Jimmy Iguana's which is an outdoor patio/restaurant/bar on the intracoastal. Don't know about drink specials, but it wouldn't hurt to ask. There are a couple other bars very close by as well, all with an outdoor patio. Will ask around for drink specials and see what I can come up with.

Our plan is to do them every Thursday while we still have good light. Obviously when it gets darker earlier, it is going to be hard, so for now a summer time thing.

We may move the location from time to time so folks don't have to drive as far. St. Pete, Palm Harbor, and maybe one in Tampa.

Always looking for suggestions. Thanks for the tips Frank.

Oh yeah....it might not be a bad idea if you are planning on coming down to call the shop that day just to confirm. But this Thursday is a go!!!
