It’s the weekend of May 20-21, but you have the option of adding Friday. Sat. morning, May 20 we launch for a 13-14 mile flatwater paddle (depending how many side canyons you explore). There’s distance to cover, so a boat of 12’ or more and sufficient skill and endurance are required. That evening, we group-camp and party nearby. It’s tent camping (next to your vehicle) with facilities. You won’t have to carry your gear in your boat. Sun. morning, we do a 7-mile paddle on the most beautiful stretch. It’s more canyon paddling than open water, so there’s little concern about rough water.
The optional Friday paddle will be on another scenic Grayson Lake feeder. We’ll have camping available at Grayson that night if you want to take advantage of it whether you paddle that day or not (add the extra night to deposit below).
When we reach the RSVP deadline (May 12), I’ll send out a group email with instructions, and we can facilitate carpooling. RSVPs are accepted on a first-come basis. Space is limited, so RSVP early to avoid missing out. Note that we are being joined by our friends from other clubs in the three-state area and the trip always fills quickly, so RSVP early to have the best chances at grabbing a spot.
To RSVP, and the only way to RSVP, send $9.75/person/night (your option is just Sat,. or Fri. & Sat.) to Henry Dorfman, 1409 Amesbury Dr., Cinti. 45231 for the camp fee. (Unrefundable after May 1). RSVP must include names of people in your party, number of vehicles (contact me before mailing if you contemplate RV, boat trailer or anything else that takes up extra space, or if you’d prefer a cabin), your email address and phone #. Incomplete RSVPs not accepted, so please include the requested info.
What you need: boat (at least 12’ long), paddle, PFD (must be worn when on the water), camping gear, food for on the water and off, appropriate paddling clothing, and rain gear (you never know).
