|Johnson County Sailing Society to conduct first of two|
All sailors and sailing enthusiasts are invited to join the Johnson County Sailing Society for a special event on Saturday, May 17, at Shawnee Mission Park Lake, 7900 Renner Road, Shawnee and Lenexa.
The free one-hour event is called "Come Sail With Us" and will take place beginning at noon at the Shawnee Mission Park Marina, 7900 Renner Road, located near the marina.
Participants should bring a sack lunch and dine with Sailing Society members. Following lunch, there will be an opportunity to sail a variety of vessels while participating in water activities like mock races or a sailing scavenger hunt. The society will conduct another "Come Sail With Us" event on June 28.
For more information, or to participate in Sailing Society races, please contact Nick Hockman at (913) 268-5683.
Water levels in Shawnee Mission Park Lake have returned to normal levels thanks to spring rains after being lowered by as much as nine feet in 2007 for lake-related projects including the installation of a wetlands on the lake's east end.
