Laid Back Sunday Social Paddle - Triadelphia - Big Branch

Laid Back Sunday Social Paddle at Triadelphia

 

The actual attendance limit for this paddle is 30 paddlers.  6 spots have been set aside for people who will be renting kayaks.  If you are a renter on the waiting list I will move you to the attending list.   Those spots not filled by renters 24 hours before the paddle will be filled with members on the waiting list who have paid the voluntary dues.  Everyone has the same chance to sign up for the first 24 slots.

Finish off the weekend in style with this CKA social paddle.  Bring a snack for yourself and perhaps something to share with the group for a break at about midpoint in the paddle.  This will be an easy, approximately 8 mile laid back Sunday paddle which should have us off the water by 2:30ish in time for a late lunch in the area if anyone is interested.

We'll be launching from the Big Branch Recreation Area on Triadelphia promptly at 10:30 AM.  Plan to arrive with plenty of time to have your boat and gear ready to be on the water by then.

Triadelphia Reservoir is owned by the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC). To paddle here you need to purchase a $6.00 day use permit or a $70.00 season permit. With over 13 miles of water between Triadelphia and Rocky Gorge Reservoirs and 7 different kayak launch sites we'll visit the WSSC properties often during the season and I suspect regular paddlers in the area will find that the season pass will pay for itself quickly. You can purchase day or season permits on line and print them out at home. Look under hot topiics at the WSSC website located here http://www.wsscwater.com/home/jsp/home.faces

There are rental kayaks available for this paddle at special weekend price of $40.00. Please answer the rental question when you RSVP to request one.

    Great day. Had a lot of fun going way up Cattail Creek. As usual the rain never materialized. Thanks for coming everyone!

    My first paddle on Tridelphia, and it was a beauty. I loved Cattail Creek. Thanks for another great day on the water. Good to see you all

    The day was magical. We had a chance to explore sections of Triadelphia I've never seen before. It was exciting and fun!

    Great!

    My read on this mornings weather is that things are going to be great for a paddle today. The chance of rain remains at ZERO per cent until 1:00 PM when it goes up to 30%. The more serious chance of rain doesn't happen until later in the afternoon. Long after we are off the water. Happy Father's Day to all the dad's out there.

    We made other plans earlier today Cruz we were still on the wait list. Hopefully, we'll come off Wednesdays wait list and paddle with y'all!

    My guest can't make it and I have my own boat so not rental needed for me.

    Unfortunately we have had a change in father's day plans and will not be able to attend. Look forward to the next paddle.

    I completely forgot I was paddling the Potomac with the Howard County Parks and Rec. group. Want too be sure someone else gets the spot. See you all soon. Howard

    It looks like I am 11th on the waiting list, and a renter. How can I tell if I am off the waiting list? I would like to make alternate plans for Sunday, if I don't get into the paddle ...

    Chuck: Is it the watershed permit online?

    June 5, 2013

    • Chuck

      Kiyaer - The permits are online at www.wsscwater.com. Click on "permits and licenses", then "watershed use permits". It's a bit of a klunky system that will take you 10 minutes. Don't wait to do it when you're rushing out the door. Got you covered on the boat but the Inuits are more one size fits all. Sorry

      Thanks!

    Hi, I was wondering if I need to take "beginner" classes or "basic instruction" classes before I paddle. I have been Kayaking before, I have just never been taught how to get back in the boat if I tip over or stroke technique.

      Thanks for the advice. Just out of curiosity, why do you do the event at night on Wednesdays?

      June 5, 2013

    • Chuck

      The Wednesday Night paddles are really how the early stages of the group got going about 5 or 6 years ago. Lots of regular attendees look forward to it all day at work. It's a chance to get out and distress while getting some exercise and socializing with people who will soon be your friend if they're not already. I could write a book to answer your question but tried to keep it short.

    One rental will be needed.
