I know some of you have weekdays off and want to do the Salt River on a weekday when there are less people there.
The event will be Thursday, July 17th. at 7:30.
Meet at Power & McDowell SE corner in parking lot near the Shell Station at 7:30am. We will figure out which vehicles are transporting Kayaks to Water Users and which will be left at Granite Reef. Hopefully we can leave the parking lot at 7:45am and drop a vehicle at Granite Reef by 8am. I hope to be on the water at Water users at 8:45am after a short safety meeting. We should be off the water by 12:30pm.
We need at least two vehicles to go. I have a long bed PU and can take up to 4 kayaks & people. We need to drop at least one vehicle off at Granite Reef for transportation back to Water Users to get the truck.
Bring plenty of water, lunch, sunscreen, etc. There will be 2 short breaks. Moderate paddling is required as we are not just floating but we are not power paddling either.
This is a GROUP event and we try to stay reasonably together to assist each other in case of mishaps and to help carry the Kayaks to & from the water.
A flotation vest is required and a signal whistle is strongly advised. Also consider tying on everything in case of a capsize.
Ask if you have questions.
A Tonto Use permit ($6) is needed per vehicle parked at Water Users and Granite Reef.
This event is subject to cancellation do to lack of interest (I need at least one other person/vehicle to go); low water flow, or other unforeseen issues. Make sure you check the meet up site for updates prior to heading to the meeting location.
(I know I wrote Kayaks but Canoes and Paddle boards are welcome too)
