MAP paddling trips this week with a "support local restaurants" theme (sorry for late notice about tomorrow):
Sunday, August 7: Mon River from Uffington to Table 9 (2.7 miles) and back
after brunch at Table 9. Includes lockages through the Morgantown Lock. Meet at Uffington boat ramp ready to paddle at 8:15 a.m.
When we reach Table 9, which opens at 10:00,
we will tie up boats on their dock (so bring a short rope or strap),
and partake in the delicious brunch they are known for. (Our
boats should be visible from an outside table.) Estimated time on water
(with 20-min lockages) will be 3 1/2 hours. Beautiful day forecast -
sunny, light wind, morning temps in 70's!
Tuesday, August 9: Mon River from Van Voorhis Landing to Terra Café in Star City and back.
We will start paddling at 9:00 a.m. from the new kayak/canoe launch,
paddle to Star City (2.9 miles, abt. 80 min). While someone watches
the boats and gear, we can grab food/drinks at Terra Café, eat on shore,
then paddle back to
the launch. Weather predicted to be cloudy, with no rain until later
in the day, and morning temps in 70's.
