As with most trips at Events, signups will be at the Event.

Narrative: Sign-up at the Event. Twilight trip on Woahink Lake, Jesse Honeyman State Park. We’ll launch at or near the boat ramp on the east side of the Day Use Area about 6:30 p.m. We paddle the two north arms of the lake and return just before twilight ends (around 8:45 p.m.). With a new-moon, this may be a good time to see some stars. Bathrooms are on the west side of the Day Use Area. Power boats do use this lake, but they’re generally off the water by evening. There are no lights in parking lot; bring a lantern if you want. If you’re not camping at the park, you’ll need a Day Use pass.
