The Wednesday Night Paddler (TWNP) Big Branch

  • Jun 26, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Triadelphia Reservoir - Big Branch


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.

Our  now world famous regular Wednesday Night Paddles have begun for the season.  This paddle is on Wednesday, May 22, 2013 at 6:00 PM.  The time is the "on the water time".  Please plan to arrive early enough to have your boat and gear ready to paddle promptly at 6:00 PM.  We DO NOT wait for people on Wednesday Nights.

This Wednesday night paddle will find us on the water from the Big Branch Recrreation Area on Triadelphia Reservoirr.  Triadelphia Reservoir is owned by the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC).  To paddle here you must purchase a $6.00 day use permit or a $70.00 season permit.  Please purchase a permit or be prepared to suffer the consequences.

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 purchse day or season permits on line and print them out at home.  Look under hot topiics at the WSSC website located here

The Wednesday Night Paddler (TWNP) is a chance for everyone to paddle off the work day stress while working on paddling technique and staying in shape.  Of course it becomes quite a social event too.  TWNP is an opportunity for everyone regardless of boat type or skill level to paddle in the safety and camaraderie of a group as long as you have access to a boat, PFD and paddle.

There will be rental kayaks (including a paddle and PFD) available for this paddle at the Wednesday Night price of $25.00.  If you require one please indicate that by answering the rental questions when you RSVP.  There are spots reserved for renters about the attendance limit stated above.  the first few renters on the waiting list will be moved to the attending list.

    The weather conditions were daunting at first but we just waited it out. The clouds parted and revealed a delightful evening spent with special friends.

    Forward looking radar suggests that we may have a little rain right up to put in time but that it will be clear for the paddle. Hope to see you there............
