Suggestions based on above conditions:

Bring a towel or cooling bandana you can dip in the water to refresh yourself


IMPORTANT NOTE:

I will be attending a funeral that starts at 2:00PM, and will hopefully still be able to make it on time, but if not, please get on the water with Harmon as designated associate trip coordinator, go out the channel and turn right as the lake opens up, continuing counter-clockwise, and I will catch up with you when I can.

WHAT
:
Jimmy Buffet and the Coral Reefer Band Concert at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands. 

PLAN:
Arrive at 6:15 PM and park as close as possible to Riva Row in the Green parking lot. Plan is to get on the water as fast as possible and paddle around Lake Woodlands for an hour+ (3-4 flatwater miles), and then be in place for the 8:00 start of the concert.

NOTE: a meetup group (Kayaking in Houston) is scheduled to arrive at the same spot around 6:30, so don't get confused.
