Valentine Paddle

Valentine Paddle

E. Cherokee Rd. > Canton (14 miles)

Sunday, February 16, 2014

Meeting at the Waffle House on GA 20 & E. Cherokee Rd at 9:00am. For those who want to join for breakfast we’ll be there around 8:30. We’ll leave punctually for the river at 9:30 so don’t be late!

Since this is a Valentine Paddle everyone must bring a non-gender Valentine gift between $5 & $15. Gifts will be numbered and a drawing will be held at dinner after the paddle and YES you presence at dinner is expected.

Although the temperature is supposed to reach 60 degrees this 14 mile trip should take 4 – 4 ½ paddling hours plus a lunch stop so plan for a cold weather paddle and bring dry gear, gloves, hat and dress warmly.

"Imagine that" the high temperature for Sunday just dropped 10 degrees. Maybe it will snow after all. Watch the weather and plan accordingly!!!

This is a gentle section of the Etowah so no one should get wet.

Questions or information should be directed to Richard Grove at[masked] or send e-mails to: [masked]

    Supremely awesome paddle! Richard, thanks for organizing, for ordering such a beautiful day for us, for bringing the wine, building the fire and inviting such great fellow paddlers along. Hope to see you all again soon.

    Great day of excellent river and weather conditions for paddling with good friends. The melting snow gave the river just the right amount of additional water to make our trip fun and easy. The luncheon warming fire with wine, cheeses and chocolates was heavenly and the buffet dinner with Valentine gift swapping was an amusing and pleasant surprise since of choice of Chinese restaurants was out of business.

    :( Hate to miss this and the entertaining company but something has come up which will prevent me from getting on the road in time to join you tomorrow. I hope the weather is favorable and that I get another chance to join another time.

    Well, this stinks! We are moving out of the house three weeks from Sunday, and our tenant-to-be is coming to start moving in. Y'all have fun--it's going to be a beautiful day.

    Do I need a rec/touring boat for this? I just have the LL remix.

    • Bobby M.

      Your Remix will be fine, you may just have to paddle a little harder....

    If I can get my kayak before Sunday then I would love to join in. Didn't want to RSVP and take a spot though just in case.

    • Suzi

      Yes, Steve, it will be Suzi. :-) I don't usually like to be the anonymous +1, but we were conserving power by using only one computer while the power was out.

    I get to meet the mysterious Debra?

    • Deborah

      If you are referring to this Deborah, mystery is likely to be more interesting than reality... ;)
