Laid Back Memorial Day Social Paddle at Triadelphia
Total attendance limit for this event is 30 paddlers. 6 spots are reserved for renters. Renters and members who have paid the voluntary dues on the wait list will receive priority for those 6 spots. Everyone has the same opportunity for the first 24 slots
Finish off the holiday weekend in style with this CKA social paddle. If you couldn't make it over to Chestertown to paddle with us, here's something local. 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 holiday paddle which should have us off the water by 3:30ish in time for a late lunch in the area if anyone is interested.
We'll be launching from the Greenbridge Recreation Area on the Montgomery County Side of Triadelphia promptly at 11:00 AM. 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 $45.00. Please answer the rental question when you RSVP to request one.
