Peddle/Paddle/ Armleder to Schmidt 11/3/13

We have talked about peddle/paddling for a while..... lets do it!!

 Armleder park to Schmidt Field, then dinner at Eli's!! 

* Peddling is not necessary... you may shuttle as usual.

But the rest of us will unload Kayaks, paddles ect & passengers at the Armleder Park ramp near the Little Miami. I plan to unload my chain and lock here, to use later.  The drivers will take the Vehicles and Bikes to Schmidt field. Parking on the upper half of the lot is free.  Peddlers will ride as a group back to Armleder park, crossing Kelloge at a red light. This is a flat easy peddle, maybe 6 or 7 miles. 

Those without bikes will shuttle as usual (In a vehicle)

Please bring a lock, cable or chain to secure your bike at the park, while we paddle down the little Miami, to the Ohio River.

The last time we ran this strip, there were some fun little rapids. Most of us got damp. You might want to wear your skirt, waterproof pants or lay plastic across your lap.

We will paddle in a group to the Ohio River, turn right (West) and head to Schmidt field to load up. 

Eli's is a short distance (Walk or drive) east of Schmidt field.

ELI"S is OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK (11 AM-9 PM) 513.307.8318. Payment accepted cash or check.      3313 Riverside Dr Cincinnati, OH 45226

Cash or Check!!  May bring Adult Beverages!!

What To Bring : Kayaking Stuff, Biking stuff, refreshments! Cash or check.... No plastic!!

Restrooms – At Armleders and Schmidt and Eli's

Weather Forecast – High 65 with lots of sun,

Experience – Suitable for…beginners.  Many strong paddlers in 10 ft boats are fine for this afternoon leisure paddle. 

This is a group event. If you can not keep up, please do not attend.  This is a leisure paddle, not a race.  :)

Post-Paddle Sustenance – Eli's.   Bring refreshments!

Liability Waiver – As always, by joining in this event you are acknowledging that you have read and agree to abide by the Tri-State Kaykers liability waiver. You can find this waiver in the Files section of the Tri-State Kayakers web site

SAFETY SIGN IN: Everyone will sign in before launching: your name, Emergency contact person and phone number. I realized if someone required 911, I do not know last names or who to call. This list is kept in my dry bag during the paddle, then shredded when I get home. Hopefully we will never have to use it. :D

You are responsible for your own equipment, bike, kayak.  TSK or TSK members are not responsible for theft or damage.

      Liz, I sure hope so, The little Miami will be running a little faster than the last time, but the Ohio will be about the same.

    Anyone have a friend not interested in the bike ride, who would stay at the park and watch the kayak gear? I would transport their kayak back to the put in afterwards.....
