    Eagle Creek Tuesday Evening Paddles

    Eagle Creek paddles started on May 4th and run through the end of September.  These are unstructured paddles where HCKC members can explore the lake and train to develop speed-endurance or to practice skills.   If you would like to paddle with other HCKC members, I would recommend coordinating that through the club bulletin board, Facebook or e-mail.

    • When:    Tuesday, May 4 through September 28, 2021
    • Starting Time - Between 1:00 pm to Closing:  HCKC Members may use the pass to enter the park with their boats any time after 1:00 pm on the specified Tuesdays.
    • Ending Time - Park Closing Time:   When you enter the park, look at the closing time posted at each of the park entrances since these times change during the year.  They normally lock at least one of the gates at closing time.
    • Where to Launch: 
    • Ramp near Discovery Center —Enter the park at either the 56th Street or 71st Street entrance and follow the signs to the Discovery Center or “Go Ape!”  Use the boat/kayak ramp across the parking lot from the Discovery Center (next to Go Ape). 
    • Marina Personal Boat Launch - You can also launch from the personal boat launch next to the building with bathrooms near Eagle Creek Outfitters.  Please do not launch at the beach at Eagle Creek Outfitters since it is reserved for their use.
    • Note: This pass is not valid at the Dandy Trail ramp at the south of 56th street near Ric’s.
    • 2021 HCKC-Eagle Creek Pass:  Current HCKC Members must print the 2021 HCKC pass and show it to the Eagle Creek gate staff to get in without paying.  The fee for park admittance is at least $8 for a car with one kayak or canoe otherwise.

      To Get the Pass: 
       This program is only available for current HCKC members.  To access the pass, go to:
       Eagle Creek Tuesday Pass
      Note:  You will be prompted to enter your e-mail and password if you are not already logged in.
    • Covid Policy:
      During all scheduled club activities, we will follow CDC and Local Mask and Social Distancing Guidelines.

    Swimming portion of the  Indy Sprint Triathlon Series.  HCKC members and guest provide safety boats for the swimmers in the 500 meter course.  Participants are there to provide assistance to swimmers, guide them on the course,  allow a place to rest or signal for extraction.  We will be on the outside of the course while city lifeguards are on the inside of the course. Meet at the Eagle Creek Park office on 56th street just northwest of the main park entrance and just before you get to the bridge over the reservoir. 

    If your bringing a guest or another family member please register them separately.

     We must be unloaded and on the water by 7:45-50 as the swimming starts at 8am.   Instructions will be given just prior to the event.  No special skills needed.  Items which may enhance your effectiveness are whistle,  short throw line and float, extra PFD.  We are usually done by 9.  Some go to breakfast, some go paddle around, some have to go home and do chores. 

    This is an important event to HCKC as we the club is paid a $1000.00 for helping with this event.  You will get an event T-shirt for participating, please register with shirt size.  Canoe, Kayak or paddle board OK. 

     If you have questions or concerns please contact John Wainscott @ wldleak@sbcglobal.net or 317-250-8107.

    It is recommend, but not essential that you join some of the rescue and training courses taking place earlier in the year.
