Moonlight Yoyo (class 3)

Let's paddle Yoyo under a full moon! Yoyo is a class 2 run but the darkness should make it interesting, so please have solid class 3 paddling skills.

Timeline:
5:00 pm: Please be at Flaming Geyser, changed and ready to shuttle by this time
5:00 pm: Moonrise. Full moon is the following day so it will be nearly full.
5:44 pm: Sunset
6:00 pm: Flaming Geyser State Park closes. Any cars left inside the gate at this time cannot be retrieved until the following day.

Meet at Flaming Geyser put-in. We will drop off boats and then shuttle to Whitney Bridge take-out to drop cars. Since FG will close before we get off the water, shuttle drivers will need to park outside of FG and then walk back in to the put-in (1.3 miles). Don't be late, we need to be on the water before the park closes at 6:00.

It is recommended that you bring a waterproof headlamp which can fit on your helmet. If you need to buy one, here's a suggestion: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0C1VSYNMX?tag=track-ect-usa-1483582-20&linkCode=osi&th=1&psc=1

I will supply glow sticks for everyone to attach to their boats and pfds, so that we can find each other in case of a swim.

Potluck to follow the paddle. Please bring a camp chair and a food item to share.

This event is subject to cancellation if it's too rainy and overcast for the moonlight to shine through.
