Paddlepalooza Lake Minnetonka 2016

BIGGER AND BETTER FOR 2016. We witnessed a record turn out last year with over 70 paddlers enjoying our 2nd annual Paddlepalooza on Gull Lake.  With the huge success we’ve received we have added a Lake Minnetonka Event to kick off Summer. Join us on May 22nd for a paddle fest on Lake Minnetonka.  Open to Stand Up Paddleboards, Kayaks, and Canoes.  Fully supported with a mid-way BBQ and music, followed with an after party catered by Joey Nova’s Pizzeria at Excelsior BrewingThis is all for a great cause.  We are partnering with Safe Hands Rescue to raise fund for the animals they rescue.  Coffee provided the morning of from our friends at Dunn Bros Excelsior! and thanks to Kowalski’s  for donating morning goodies.
