Aug. 1: Lutz Park in Appleton to Sunset Park in Kimberly
Challenges: This is our least challenging paddle. Short distance and four stops in the locks.
Meet: After 8:30 AM at Lutz Park and shuttle vehicles to Sunset Park.Take bus back to launch.
Fee: $15 per adult. Under age 16, free with an adult. Fee covers ACA event insurance, bus and marketing costs. No one is paid. Any proceeds to the NEWP.
- All participants must wear a personal flotation device (PFD or lifejacket) at all times while on the water.

Members of NEWP can arrange to borrow a boat by contacting a member of the Board. Several boat rental businesses operate in the region.
We finally got the hint from Mother Nature and scheduled this paddle earlier in hopes of avoiding the late-season high water levels that have dogged us in recent years. Experience 1800s navigation technology from the inside as we pass through the four Appleton locks.
