Weather was perfect. And it even got smoother on the other side of the bridge, for those who went for a few more after we got back to the Park. So, here's the rundown in the order we did them:

3
A
B
5
F
G
I
J
H

U-turn

E
D
C
EC - Drowned Stream
Birds of Armand Bayou Final
4

At this point, a bunch left, but for those who carried on we did:

CLAPS #2
CLAPS II #6

and saw a BUNCH of gators on the other side of the bridge.

Congrats to those who completed the CLAPS Challenge! Thanks, everyone, for coming.

And a big shout-out to Key Results, 2Katz and Lola for their pimped-out, Christmas-lighted boats. Very festive.

What kind of lights were you putting on the kayaks that didn't need electricity? The pictures look pretty.

A long extension cord was 1st choice, but i forgot it. So, instead 2katz and I settled on battery powered LED rope lights from HDepot. They recharge the built-in lithium battery by day via a small solar panel. They are built for outdoor weather and seemed up to the task.

I think Lola used battery powered lights too. Many used chemical glow sticks.
It was pretty cool. I wish I got a video.
