Laid Back Sunday Social Paddle - Triadelphia - Greenbridge

Late Afternoon Laid Back Sunday Social Paddle at Triadelphia

RSVPs for this paddle open up on Monday, August 12th at 8:15 PM.

This paddle is later in the day, because many of us will be doing the Kayak Swim Support at Centennial Lake in the morning.

Total attendance limit for this event is 30 paddlers, but only shows as 24.  6 spots are reserved for renters.  Renters on the wait list will receive priority and be moved to the attending list until the max of 30 is reached.

Finish off the weekend is 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 6:00 or 7:00 in time for a late dinner if anybody is interested.

We'll be launching from the Greenbridge Recreation Area on the Montgomery County Side of Triadelphia promptly at 3:00 PM.  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.

Kayaking involves known and unanticipated risks including physical injury and death that cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential quality of the sport. Group organizers and leaders and other members cannot pay continuous attention to all participants. Participants must be responsible for their own safety. Don’t overestimate your skills and abilities. Take instructional courses to learn about paddling technique, safety, self rescue and hypothermia. Be aware of the tides, currents and weather conditions that will affect your safety on the days you paddle. Cooperate with group organizers, leaders and other members to insure your own safety as well as the safety of others and make it the fun, enjoyable day on the water it should be.

    I see a few newbies on this paddle some of whom have requested rental kayaks along with a paddle and PFD. Rest assured that I have seen your requests. Also you should know that the evening before every paddle I always send out an email with all of the details you need to know for the following day. Sometimes I don't get it sent until a little late. The start times listed are always the "on the water time". You should plan to arrive with enough time to have your boat and gear ready to launch promptly by then. If you're renting plan to arrive a have hour before then to get situated with your boat and gear.

    I will be there and I think there's a very good chance we won't get poured on or maybe not even get wet.
