NEW LOCATION Boatball, Wed, Sep 15, 6:00 - 8:00 pm, Chamber Springs access, Illinois River

NEW LOCATION for Boatball this Wednesday, September 15, 6:00 - 8:00 pm, at Chambers Springs Road access of Illinois River.

Directions: Take Hwy 412 headed west from Springdale towards Siloam Springs. After the second bridge that crosses the Illinois you will get in the next left turn lane which will be Chamber Springs Road. There is a metal building with a big sign "Riverside Fireworks" where you turn. Head south on dirt road approximately 200 yards and you will arrive at parking lot for access. If you need something to plug into your GPS here is address for Riverside Fireworks, where you turn onto the dirt: 17023 Chamber Springs Rd, Siloam Springs AR.We will be in the pool at the access or if not, put in & paddle up river of the bridge (which will be to your left facing river) & you will find us in the next pool up river from the bridge.

As a result of our "new normal" below are 2 new & 2 old SAFETY RULES / PROTOCOL that will apply to all players in an effort to reduce the risk of illness/injury during play.

1. Proof of COVID VACCINATION will be required for all players 16 and older.

2. All players are required to wear a PFD (personal floatation device) and a helmet.

3. During play NO STANDING will be allowed in or on the paddle craft of your choice (i.e., canoe, kayak, SUP, paddle board, etc.).

4. All players understand they play boatball at their own risk.


Please post up in this link on the message board if you plan on joining us. This helps me determine if we are going to have enough players & saves those that travel a good distance time/gas, if we're not going to have enough for a game.

Be sure & check back here before you head out. I will make every effort to post up here by 4:30 to let you know if the game is still on or if we need to cancel due to lack of players or weather conditions deteriorate.

Don't hesitate to text or call me if you have any questions, 4seven9.three8one.5nine9five.
Also, If you'd like to be notified via text of game schedule / status, just let me know.
