We will spend June 27 learning how to do kayaking, swimming, playing, making a barbecue and above all, having fun!
The place were we will do this is a nearby lake. No big ships, no current, no danger. The first 500 - 700 meters are not deeper than 1,50, so even people who are no swimmers can enjoy paddling without fear. Still, the paddling is at your own risk. If you decide not to paddle, you have plenty of other options for having fun

The weather forecast predicts 26 degrees, temporarily cloudy with a few drops of rain, which is almost ideal for paddling because it will be warm but the sun will not burn so extremely – and you will get a bit wet anyway, so a few rain drops don't count .
Even if you do not kayak or swim, you might want to bring a bathing suit (or two, one for changing), so you can go a few steps into the water and refresh when it gets too hot outside.
Apart from the above, bring whatever clothes, shoes, and equipment you would enjoy on a picnic day. It would be great if you could bring:
Please bring your own food and, if you have time to prepare something, also food you are willing to share:

We spend the day at the Heider Bergsee a lake near Brühl. No big ships, no current, no danger. The first 700 meters (the entire right-hand-side half of the lake in the image below) are not deeper than 1,50, so even people who are no swimmers can have fun without fear. Still, the paddling is at your own risk.
The blue dot in the image above shows the parking for those who come by car. The red dot is the place where we start kayaking. The blue line is the footpath for those who come by car. The red line is the footpath from the taxi stop, for those who come by public transport. The black marker is the toilet and shower building of the camping ground and the dotted black lines the two options to get there: walking or swimming
I can offer a lift in the club's bus for up to 8 people, on a first-come-first-served basis. Those who want a lift are volunteering to

If you organise your own joint car trip, please let me know. Ideally, the driver will e-mail me the names of the persons who will ride with him. The address for your route guidance system is “Seeweg, 50321 Brühl”.
At the bottom of the image of the Heider Bergsee (above) you see different alternatives for public transport from Bonn main station. Below, I have taken the first option, so that those who come by public transport and those who come with me in the club's bus arrive at about the same time.
The Anrufsammeltaxi has fixed departure times but it comes only if you call it at least half an hour in advance at 02232-19731.
I can do it for you, if you leave a comment in doodle that you want to come by public transport. Please do it by Monday evening (June 26).
The place where we will be has no facilities whatsoever. It is just a green meadow. However, there is a camping ground at five minutes walking distance where you can pay a day visitor fee (2,50 Euros) to be able to access the place and use the toilets, showers, etc. Showers cost 1 Euro extra (you need coins).
Feel invited to e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit me in room A107.
Looking forward to a fun day with you – Günter
