Laid Back Labor Day Monday 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 mile laid back paddle which should have us off the water by 2:00 or 2:30 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

There are rental kayaks available for this paddle at special monday price of $40.00. Please answer the rental question when you RSVP to request one.

    I don't know how Chuck and Kimmie manage to control the weather - no storms just lots of fun and good company. Even the WSSC police officers were kind!

    WEATHER UPDATE 7:30 AM The chance of rain today has aurally decreased and moved to a little bit later in the day. We should have a great day for a paddle

    Can't go because my hand is still too swollen to handle a paddle or wear the waterproof gloves the doctor wanted me too. I had to take the brunt of a bad fight my dog and cats got into yesterday. I wish I could give my watershed permit to someone. Enjoy your paddle.

    Hello all,
    I was glad to make the paddle and then I was sorry to have to "exit". Planning to get out of Dodge for a time.
    There are many waiting, so this will help. ( I need time to panic and pack! :o- silent scream.) Hope the day is sunny and fine.
    Thank you, Karen ;)

    Hi Chuck,

    Sadly just had to change my RSVP to no, as contrary to what I had originally thought & planned, will now not be back in Maryland for at least a few more weeks. Am very sorry to have to miss both this and the Saturday Marathon outing, but hope to see all of you on many future outings in the near future. Happy paddling to all this weekend. Allan

    The details of life have caught up with me and I won't be able to make this one. I have changed my RSVP to not attending.
