The Wednesday Night Paddler (TWNP) Season Opener at Daniels
RSVP's for this event open Thursday March 13th at 9:00 PM
There are spots reserved for renters at all paddles even if the paddle is otherwise full. Renters and members who have paid the voluntary annual dues will receive priority on the wait list over those who have not.
I am making this paddle Cold Water Attire Strongly Encouraged but not required. If you have the right gear, please wear it. On this section of the Patapsco, water less than knee deep is never more than a couple of steps away so you can usually stand up and immediately be out of the cold water but you're still going to be wet and very cold. If you don't have Cold Water Attire please bring dry clothes to change into in case you do get wet. Wear synthetic fabrics and avoid cotton at all costs. Depending on water temps I may have to change this to Cold Water Attire Required.
Our now world famous regular Wednesday Night Paddles have begun for the 2014 season. 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 because of limited daylight hours.
Sunset on April 16th, 2014 will be around 7:36 PM which should give us the time to get up stream to the swimming hole OR at least the big bend for a few minutes of socialization before heading back to Daniels.
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. Many members bring a snack or something to share with the group during the social time out of our boats.
There will be rental kayaks (including a paddle and PFD) available for this paddle at the Wednesday Night price of $30.00. ($25.00 for members who have paid the voluntary dues) If you require one please indicate that by answering the rental question when you RSVP.
