Boatball, Wed, 5:30 pm, Chamber Springs access on Illinois

Post by wiredforsound » Tue May 05, 2015 8:30 am

Boatball, this Wednesday, May 6, starting at 5:30 ish at Chambers Springs Road access of Illinois River.

Please post up if you plan on joining us so those of us that drive a good distance can save on gas if we're not going to have enough for a game. I will make every attempt possible to post up here by 4:30 pm, Wednesday, on whether we have enough to play so be sure you check back here before making the drive.

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. 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. 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 72761. Also, Google map: http://goo.gl/maps/yuia" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Link to information on what boatball is & the "rules" of play, if interested, can be found here:

Also, link to a couple of videos for inspiration:

Don't hesitate to text or call me if you have any questions, 4seven9.three8one.5nine9five.

Come on out & play. :yahoo:

Was sure hoping it would give you an excuse to knock off early from the daily grind, hit the whitewater park for a warm up surf or two & then head to boatball for a grand finale. :grin:

Just want to say...and I promise this isn't because I'm only 5 miles away, since Chamber isn't much further...I'd love to see us play a game above the falls at the Ford. Just one.

With all the locals hanging out there in the afternoon, they'd get a real kick out of it. Might even convert a few fishermen to WW boating.
