Florida Paddlers Rendezvous 2017 News
October 12, 2017
It is only two weeks from the start of the Florida Paddlers Rendezvous 2017! We have been planning this fantastic event for the past year and now it is almost here!

The Florida Paddlers Rendezvous 2017 website has been updated with some new stuff, so please check it out. Here is a few items we have included in the Rendezvous.

We will be offering a raffle Saturday night for some really cool outdoor gear. Raffle tickets will be $5 per ticket and will be available at the campground picnic pavilions area. We'll have some of the gear for you to check out and drool over. All raffle proceeds will be donated to the Silver Springs Alliance. This non-profit organization is helping protect Silver Springs. You can review some of the 50 raffle items at the Florida Paddlers Rendezvous 2017 website.

The Rendezvous Check In will be located in the picnic area of the main entrance to Silver Springs State Park. This is entrance off FL 40 for the glass bottom boat tours. The Check In table will be at the south end of the parking lot in the picnic area. Do not go into the campground picnic pavilions to check in in the mornings. The Rendezvous website has a new map that identifies the event areas at Silver Springs State Park.

At the Check In table you will receive your Rendezvous info packet and arm band. Please wear the arm band during the event activities. The arm band will allow you free use of the Silver River kayak launch ramp.

There will be an area to park RV's and trailers at the main park entrance parking lot for Rendezvous participants camping at the state park arriving Friday or Saturday mornings. The campground check in is the late afternoon at 3 pm. You can park your camping rig and go out on your morning paddle trip; upon your return drive over to the campground to check in.
