The annual Wedeln Ski and Outdoor Club Canoe Trip will take place Saturday July 13th. We will start the week off in style Friday night with a meet and greet at our ski house - great way to get to know people before you hit the river the next day. This is our famous paddle and float down the sandy Saco River. Its a day full of fun and we take care of all the details so you can relax and enjoy the river. The total trip is just under seven miles but our mellow pace means we have a full day (about 5 hours) on the river. Please feel free to RSVP on this site BUT to reserve your spot you MUST mail in the Registration form. This Meetup site is ONLY to show interest.
Cost includes canoe rental(including paddle, pfd), dinner, lunch, breakfast, and a bus to and from the river. We also host a bonfire that night. Cost for the weekend ($85) does not include guest fees so please add $25 dollar per night for guests staying at the Wedeln House. I recommend guests stay both Friday and Saturday. If you have your own canoe or kayak then cost for the weekend is only $55(no bus) + room fees, there are no other substitutions or savings even if you plan to skip meals.
SCHEDULE Here is the basic schedule - All times are aprox. and everything usually runs a bit late.

SUNDAY July 15th - optional day at at a swim spot on the Saco or a short hike.
If you or your friends do not have a canoe partner we will find you a paddle buddy. We pair several people up that morning and it can actually be more fun to be put in a canoe with people you do not know. No guest will get stuck alone (unless you want a single kayak). If we have an odd number of paddlers I will paddle solo.
