This is one of my favorite night paddles. We meet at the large boat ramp(closest to rte 19) and paddle to the remote area to the left under the bridge where we usually see a lot of wildlife. Plan to paddle for about 1 1/2 hours total, and then we drive a short distance to Canonsburg where we will have reserved parking at my office, and 1/2 block away is Ocktoberfest. This festival has been rated as one of the top 10 Ocktoberfests in the country. They are expecting 40,000 - 50,000 people this weekend. This used to be held at Station Square and was moved to Canonsburg about 15 years ago. We can sample some wonderful German brews and eat great food, and enjoy live music. The main stage band if Ruff Creek, a fantastic country rock band.
If you arrive later than 6:15, just paddle to your left , so you can still join us if you are late. Since it will be getting close to dusk it is a good idea to have a light with you. If you are a beginner and need paddling tips, please be there at 6:00. PDF's are required. There is a bathroom at the lake, and there is a bathroom at my office if you need to change. This is always a fun night.
Canonsburg Lake is about 1/2 mile south of Donaldson's Crossroads in McMurray as you head south on Rte 19. The lake is on your right across from K-Mart. If you think you may need my cell #, please e-mail me and request.
Note time of departure is 6:15 p.m.. so you need to arrive before that to unload boat and be ready to go. But if late you will still be able to join us since we will be visible on the lake and will be returning back to the boat ramp at some point.
