The Wednesday Night Paddler (TWNP) Brown's Bridge


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 23, 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 Browns Bridge Recrreation Area on Rocky Gorge 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.  To request one you must answer the rental question when you RSVP.

    Best snacks and beverages. Temperature is still cool but great to be on the water.

    A little breezy but still a lot of fun. With the wind and the currant at our backs, it sure was a quick trip back.

      I got a pass last night and it was seamless once I found the appropriate link on their page

    So how do you go about getting the day pass? The WSSC site is a pain...I do not want to have to create an that the only way to get the pass?
