Have You Attended the Ross Island Happy Hour?

If you’ve paddled with me in the Summertime then you probably know I created and love attending a little event called “The Ross Island Happy Hour”. This is late afternoon or early evening casual paddle to the south tip of Ross Island where friends join together for a beverage, to socialize in late afternoon sun, smoke a little something if that’s what you’re into, play on each other’s SUPs, and generally have a really fun time. I’ve been chomping at the bit to announce the first RIHH of the season but the weather is NOT cooperating as it should! It’s coming though, I can feel it in my bones! 

There’s only one rule to Ross Island Happy Hour: Bring one for you and one for a friend, whether you’ve met them yet or not!

Last year’s happy hours were a lot of fun and I met a ton of new paddling friends; I’m really looking forward to another Summer on the river meeting new folks and paddling with friends again! All Ross Island Happy Hours will be announced right here at least a few days in advance (or more) so you know when to hustle home after work and hustle on down to a put in spot ASAP!

See you on the water!
