Hello Everyone, We are planning a paddle party on the Mon river at Twin Spruce Marina on Sept 14. Please bring your kayaks, canoes and any other floatable devise to the marina beginning at 10:00. I will be there around 9:30 with Peggy Pings(the owner) to get things unlocked and set up. This is a potluck affair, so bring your favorite dishes and desserts. The Master Naturalists will provide hotdogs, hamburgers, beverages and hardware. We are starting at 10:00 so we can get boats in the water and get paddling! We will paddle for an hour or so and come back to the marina for a great potluck lunch. Peggy has enough boats for about 14 people (with life jackets), so if you have an extra boat, please bring it.
Here are the directions:
Morgantown at corner of Greenbag Road / Rt 119 South at the
Morgantown Motel. Heading south, take the RIGHT at the 'V'
intersection, going down the hill, onto Co Rd 73 (aka
Smithtown Rd). Go 1.7 miles. RIGHT at the big 4'x8' Twin
Spruce Marina sign (on right), and small Mon River Trail
sign (on left). Go 0.1 mile to the riverfront, crossing the
Rail-Trail very slowly so you don't hit anyone. Marina is
under the I-79 bridge. Blue house. 48 Round Bottom Road,
Morgantown WV 26508.
If you have any questions, please E-mail me or you can call me
at 304-282-1449 or 304-291-0432. On the day of the event, you
can call Peggy Pings at 304-282-7464 or myself if you get lost.
We hope to see everyone at the marina for a fun day paddling and reconnecting with each other!
