Next week's paddling trips

Wednesday, Aug. 2, two evening paddles: 

  1. Uffington (Access Point #4 on map)
    for more experienced paddlers.  Meet at parking area at 5:30 p.m.  To be lead by Chris Linton, rain or shine, cancelled if thunderstorms.
  2. Monongahela River paddling trip for BEGINNERS AND THOSE RECUPERATING FOLKS WHO WANT TO SLOWLY GET BACK INTO PADDLING.  We will meet at the Van Voorhis Launch, Access Point #1, at 5:30 p.m. for some instruction before paddling.  We will put in safe and easy at our kayak launch and paddle on the Mon River for about an hour to give people opportunity to practice.  We will return to the launch, where those who want to depart can, and I will join anyone interested in paddling for a bit more.  If you need a boat/paddle/PFD, let me know ASAP so I can plan for this.  I have two boats I can lend out, and I may be able to get Vicky to bring her boats for us to rent, $10/hr.

Sunday, Aug. 6:  Paddle the Mon River from Prickett's Fort (Access Point #11) to Rivesville (#21), up Paw Paw Creek, then back.  Meet at 9:30 a.m. at the Prickett's Fort boat launch at the end of the big parking lot.  We will watch the weather.
As always, contact Mary Wimmer for more details and for RSVP.
