Paddle the West Branch of the Brandywine River

We will meet at Ron’s Original Bar & Grill at 9:00am http://www.ronsoriginal.com in Lionville to load boats and people onto my van and trailer. I will have a driver drop us off at the put in and pick us up at the take out. This will cut out a lot of and having to find parking spots alongside the river for everyone’s vehicles. We will paddle 10-12 miles down this small scenic, winding river. I grew up paddling this river and it has always been one of my favorite local rivers/creeks. It will take us 4-5 hours to paddle. We will stop along the river to stretch and have lunch. Bring your lunch and plenty of water. We will make a quick stop at Wawa on the way to the river to pick up any last minute supplies. After the paddle our driver will pick us up and take us back to Ron’s Tavern. Ron’s has generously offered our group 15% off of our check, so all are welcome to join us for a post paddle bite and brew as we relive the days adventure.

    I thoroughly enjoyed dining with everyone after the paddle where we shared stories, experiences, thoughts and above all…LUAGHS!! I truly appreciate everyone that came out and took part of a perfect day. Thank you all so very much for the support, the kind words, and the positive feedback. It’s all of you fun loving, open, caring people that makes the group what it is, and what people keep coming back for. Synergy is a fitting word. From the bottom of my heart…THANK YOU!! A very special thank you goes to Doug Q and Becky for being my sweepers. It’s nice to know that you have competent, skilled people in the back to make sure everyone stays with the group.

    I am running out of seats on the van so I am going to add a link for you to put a $25 deposit in order to reserve your spot. You can bring the balance on the day of the trip. This is a rain or shine event. Refunds will be given only if TIOAG determines water levels or weather conditions are not safe.
