Due to low water making Shorelane Park inaccessible to many boats, the Spring Messabout picnic will be at Richardson Park,

The Fern Ridge Spring Messabout is held the weekend before Memorial Day on Fern Ridge Reservoir near Eugene. The main event will be a gathering on the beach at Shorelane Park on Saturday, starting about 11:00, but many of us will come Friday and make a weekend of it, camping at Richardson Park, or sleeping in our boats at the marina at Richardson Park or anchored out. Call Sarah Ward for info on renting a slip for the weekend or reserving a campsite: 541-935-2005.
