Trip Announcement Sand Creek April 21st.   Sponsor: Richard Tekulve

Come and join us as we run one of the HCKC longest running trips on beautiful Sand Creek located in SE Indiana. 

We'll run Sand Creek Sat. @ 10am put-in @ the Westport Dam/ Covered Bridge area (same as 2016) to Brewersville a distance of 12.1 miles. Water should be easy going with normal spring flow nothing fast. Temps 60 for a high partly sunny. 

DIRECTIONS to the put-in; while driving south from Greensburg on St. Rd. 3 turn LEFT at the flashing yellow light in Westport onto Main St.  Proceed East on Main St. through town for 1 3/4 miles (this turns into Co. Rd. 1100 South as you leave town) to two adjacent bridges over Sand Creek. One is concrete and one is the old covered bridge. Take the (concrete) bridge to the RIGHT and as soon as you cross take a small lane to the RIGHT which is a short drive (500 ft) to the dam/access put-in location. There will be both boats and cars visible here. The put-in is located in the Delorme Atlas on page 52-B3 with the slogan Westport Bridge. This is aprox. 63 miles from the center of Indy.  
Please contact me by 9 PM on Friday so that any last minute changes can be communicated as a substitute steam may have to be utilized. My cell  phone is 812-767-1317 and email is CANOEINDIANA@YAHOO.COM .   Please leave a name and phone # for any last minute changes that can very easily occur due to fluctuating water levels as I have several hand painted gauges painted on different locations throughout the southern part of the state.
