Just a heads up that there are probably only 3 or 4 Wednesday Night Paddlers left before it gets dark too early to paddle after work.
This Wednesday Night Paddle will find us at the Greenbridge Recreation Area on Triadelphia Reservoir. 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 CAN NOT wait for people on Wednesday Nights due to limited daylight hours. This becomes even more true as the days get shorter.
PLEASE NOTE: The Greenbridge Recreation Area at Triadelphia is located at 2800 Greenbridge Road, Brookeville, MD on the Montgomery County side of the reservoir.
We will paddle a total of about 3.5 miles with a stop to socialize and share treats somewhere in the middle. Sunset will be at an amazingly early 8:02 PM. We will be back to the put with plenty of time to load boats before it gets too dark.
Triadelphia Reservoir is owned by the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC). To paddle here you need to purchase a $5.00 day use permit or a $60.00 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. 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 topics at the WSSC website located here http://www.wsscwater.com/home/jsp/home.faces
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. One tradition for the TWNP is the "Snack Break". Feel free to bring something yummy to share! We will stop part way through the evening to enjoy some treats and socializing.
There are rental kayaks available for this paddle at the weeknight price of $25.00. Please answer the rental question when you RSVP to request one.
