|Yes! The 22nd annual Patagonia Lake Spring Gathering & Lakeshore Cleanup is now set for Sun. April 11, 2021 @ 09:00 AM|
|Please Mark your Calendars! This will be the first time in over a year that our club members have the opportunity of convening in an entire group meeting & activity. The AZ Park service has allowed our organization to meet-up outdoors at our usual location on the beach at Patagonia Lake in larger numbers no more than 50. All members, friends & family are happily invited for the reunion we have sorely missed. Entrance fees will be waived for a Sat. boat-in campout site at #117 & for entering the Park on Sunday. Please ID yourself as SAPC Lake Cleanup participants with boats.
However: There will be a necessity to RSVP if you & others wish to participate. We need to assure the Park Service we will not exceed their limitations for this exclusive gathering on the Lake. Please RSVP to Royce Davenport: 520-762-9263 (as above) or email Norma: firstname.lastname@example.org
Not essential, but helpful to Park Service in preparation for this event.
Requirements: The Park Service requires all participants (except small children) to wear Covid coverings while in group mode in the Park, on the beach & on the water whenever close together.
This will be a BYO Lunch & beverage (no glass, please). Bring your boats, PFD, water, chairs, gloves, hats & face coverings. We’re hoping for fair paddling weather & fun at our gathering. Come early to get a parking space. Our off-shore cleanup usually starts around 09:00.
For Early Birds on Sat. Apr. 10: We have allocated a new Boat-in campsite #117 at the extreme West end of the Lake just north of the dry spillway. A great way to “get away” from the crowd & spend more late day quality time on the water with some camping paddle friends. Bring all your camping gear, food, etc. (Free to SAPC participants that day only). All other Boat or Drive-in campsites (electrified) on West or East side of the State Park can be reserved in advance for either day but must be paid for while reserving on-line. There may be a couple Boat-in sites still available to pay for Sat. night. For Patagonia Lake SP camping availability & reservations, go to: https://azstateparks.com/reserve/patagonia-lake/camping/
