The Wednesday Night Paddler (TWNP) at Daniels

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 over those who have not.

Our  now world famous regular Wednesday Night Paddles are in full swing for the 2014 season.  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 because of limited daylight hours.

Sunset on September 3rd will be around 7:36 PM which should give us the time to get up stream to the swimming hole OR at least the big bend for swimming and/or  socialization before heading back to Daniels.

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.  Many members bring a snack or something to share with the group during the social time out of our boats.

There will be rental kayaks (including a paddle and PFD) available for this paddle at the Wednesday Night price of $25.00. ($20.00 for members who have paid the voluntary dues)  If you require one please indicate that by answering the rental question when you RSVP.

    It seems like every paddle is the best one ever. I loved being out on the water at dusk. It was wonderful meeting new people and seeing old friends. I'm so glad to be a part of this group. I'm looking forward to more good times. Thank you Chuck and Kimmy for creating this wonderful group.

    Another great paddle and fun "intermission" with lots of delicious fare -- the rum cake was especially delicious. Thanks Kent. And thanks to Chuck and Kimmie for making it all happen. Looking forward to many more paddles.

    I am new to paddling at this location and at that time of day. Any recommendations for what to wear or need for bug repellant? What kind of snacks are most appreciated?

    September 3

    • James

      Any bug repellent with DEET, Picardin, or IR3535 would be recommended. Stay away from the "natural" repellents. They don't last long and aren't near as effective. I'll have some with me if you need it. I'm curious about snacks as well.

      There really aren't bugs at Daniels. No need for repellent. It's going to be around 80° until we are off the water so it's going to be warm. Dress accordingly

    I am so sorry to be canceling - really looking forward to this:(. I think I have a broken toe...

    • Pamela T.

      I feel your pain. Just whacked my toe ripping off the nail. Ouch. But it's the small toe so still plan on paddling. Hope yours heals quickly

    Our esteemed leaders love cookies :-). Cut up fruit is always welcomed too, dip and chips, whatever moves you :-)

    What are the basic logistics? I'm not familiar with this part of Patapsco. Do we meet, walk our kayaks up to a point upriver, then kayak back to our cars?

    September 2

    • Kimmie

      What we do is park at the put in. Then we paddle upstream. Stop at a beach for snacks. Then we paddle back downstream.
