Pirates of the Lower Des Moines River Water Trail will be stashing their treasures along the river at marked hiding places. “Paddle, Pedal & More” outfitters will host a river paddle to recover the loot on Sep 2.
Paddlers will leave Bentonsport around 9:30 am after filling out the required paperwork. (Please arrive by 9:00 am) The kayakers and canoeists will race along the river to find the hiding places and gather as many treasures as they can. After reaching the Bonaparte Ramp they will be shuttled back to Bentonsport and the prizewinners will be determined. Prizes must be kept in one’s own bag. No sharing or stealing. It is for your OWN good!
Please wear shoes that will withstand getting in and out of a canoe or kayak. Please, no youngsters under the age of four.
Separate registration fees apply to those renting equipment or those using their own. Preregistration is required, and the deadline is Aug 29. Text “Treasure Hunt” to Sandi at 641-919-9414 and PP&M will email you a registration form.
