Morgantown Area Paddlers Weekend Sept 1-4

Thursday, September 1:  Mon River from Van Voorhis Kayak Launch north.  Be ready to launch at 8:30 a.m.  We will paddle to the Ft. Martin Power Plant, and up Crooked Run where that round cement bridge is.  Great photo opps!  Trip time 3-3.5 hours unless lots of birds and flowers cause delays!  Bring binoculars, snacks and DRINK, sunscreen, hat, the usual.

I am taking a new paddler out from the launch at 12:30 p.m. to head south for an hour or so, if anyone wants to join us at this later time.

Friday, September 2:  Mon River to mouth of Cheat and up Cheat River.  Meet at Point Marion Boat Ramp ready to paddle at 10:00 a.m.  Bring lunch, snack, DRINK.  You will need your Pennsylvania Boating Permit (easy to get on-line - Chris Linton sent you directions a while back - check with her if you lost that).  Estimated time 2.5-3 hours, unless some folks want to go longer.

Sunday, September 4:  Mon River from Uffington through Morgantown Lock to Table 9 for brunch, and back (a repeat of a recent outing that went very well).  Be ready to paddle at 9:00 a.m.  We plan to make a reservation for outside deck seating to watch our boats, so if you are going on this outing, please let me know before Saturday.  Thanks!
