CANCELED - The Wednesday Night Paddler (TWNP) Big Branch

  • April 30, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • Triadelphia Reservoir - Big Branch

 

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 in that order.

Our  now world famous regular Wednesday Night Paddles have begun for the season.  This paddle is on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 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 http://www.wsscwater.com

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.  To request one you must answer the rental question when you RSVP.

    We really should have paddled at Daniels tonight. It would have been a short carry to the water. See the pic I uploaded.

    We could have changed the location to downtown Ellicott City. I bet it will flood.

    I agree sometimes a rainy evening with found time is particularly delicious with a good book. We have lots more paddles ahead of us

    At 8:30 PM Thursday the forecast is still showing a 90% to 100% chance of rain with temps in the low 50's and 15 MPH winds from now through Thursday morning. I don't see the point is stressing over the decision anymore. THIS PADDLE IS CANCELED. Sorry.

    What can I say? Don't even have the heart to load my boat on the car tonight. Hate this weather. See you next week!

    Except for a brief reduction this afternoon (Tuesday) the forecast is calling for a 90% to 100% chance of rain from now through Thursday morning with temps hovering in the low 50's. I'm not willing to admit defeat just yet but I suspect that this paddle will be canceled. On top of the rain the winds are supposed to be in the mid teens most of the time too.

    I hate to do this just having been moved from the wait list but my car is having issues and now have a 3 o'clock appointment on Wednesday so I will be unable to attend. Hopefully I can get off the waitlist for Sunday's paddle.

    Think I will drop this week what with the rain forecast plus being a bit over extended with activities/school. See everyone next week.

    Once again work is getting in the way of my real life. Sorry to miss what would have been my first paddle of the season.
