We have been hard at work planning the 2012 Short’s to Short’s Paddle. This year’s event will take place on April 27, 2012. Be sure to schedule that day off work and join us for one of our favorite events of the year. For anyone who doesn’t know, the Short’s to Short’s paddle is an event that allows participants to paddle through the rivers and lakes that connect our Bellaire Pub to our Elk Rapids production facility. The total 27 mile trip includes three lakes interconnected by three different rivers. For participants interested in a less challenging day on the water, multiple drop-out points are available.
Although we are planning several improvements for this year’s event, the basics will stay the same. As in years past, the event will remain free. We’ll depart from the public boat launch behind Fischer Insurance in Bellaire and paddle to the Village of Elk Rapids. Due to a fire at the Riverwalk Grill in Elk Rapids, we will conclude this year’s event at the public kayak launch near the Elk Rapids Chamber of Commerce. The post-paddle reception will take place at our Elk Rapids Production facility. Transportation will still be largely “on your own,” although one or more private entities may independently offer such services.

Remember to stay for the whole weekend because we will be celebrating our 8th anniversary at our Pub on Saturday April 28th!
