Laid Back Sunday Social Paddle from Scott's Cove on Rocky Gorge
The actual attendance limit for this paddle is 30 paddlers. 6 spots have been set aside for people who will be renting kayaks. If you are a renter on the waiting list I will move you to the attending list. Those spots not filled by renters 24 hours before the paddle will be filled with members on the waiting list who have paid the voluntary dues. Everyone has the same chance to sign up for the first 24 slots.
Finish off the weekend is style with this CKA laid back 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 8-9 mile laid back Sunday paddle which should have us off the water by 2:30-ish in time for a late lunch in the area if anyone is interested.
We'll be launching from the Scott's Cove Recreation Area on Rocky Gorge Reservoir promptly at 10:30 AM. Plan to arrive with plenty of time to have your boat and gear ready to be on the water by then.
Rocky Gorge 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. 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 permits at the WSSC website located here http://www.wsscwater.com
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.
