Attention all Venturers,
Order of the Arrow members, and their families. Venturing Crew
377 and the Aca Chapter of Cahuilla Lodge

There is no
cost to attend this event and there will be free
entrance for all groups helping with the service

enter Lake Perris State Recreation Area for all
groups that are not helping with the service project. If
you aren’t going to be a part of the service project,
then you are expected to pay the full $10 per vehicle
entrance/day use fee.

Scouts that will be paddling any of the kayaks or canoes in the
lake must turn in a BSA medical form
with parts A & B completely filled out. You
must also bring proof of completing a BSA swim check
within the last 12 months. The medical form and proof of
swim check must be turned into either the Chapter

Kayaks, Canoes, & The Paddlers Games:
If you have your own canoe or kayak then you are
welcome to bring it. All persons that will be in the

flotation device, also known as a life jacket). There
will be a limited number of kayaks, canoes and PFDs
available. If you have access to your own PFD
(minimum type 3) then please feel to bring it.
Kayak & Canoe Games: We will be holding games with
the kayak and canoes after the potluck.
Canoe Sail Races: If the wind is blowing at a
minimum 5mph and in the correct direction, then we
will be holding sail races. You will need to
construct your own sail using a hefty garbage bag
and whatever materials that you can procure.
Remember that you will need some way to attach the
sail to a canoe or kayak. Canoes in the sail race
will be a team competion and kayaks will be a solo
Floating Bathtub Paddle Race: The goal of this race
is to paddle a canoe 75 feet from shore, lean the
canoe over as far as you can with capsizing it in
order to fill it with as much water as possible.
Then, you have to paddle the canoe back to shore
without swamping it. You don't have to be the
fastest canoe to win. You have to have the boat that
is the most full of water and make it to shore to

played ultimate fisbee, then its pretty simple to
