Wednesday Night Paddle with Whitewater Warehouse

Lets join Whitewater Warehouse on a Wednesday Night Paddle.  I plan to attend the 6:15 shuttle.  This is the last shuttle out (3rd shuttle).  Be on the 3rd shuttle if you want to paddle with the group.

Time: Shuttles leave at approximately 5:30 & 6:15
Cost: $25.00 Equipment and Shuttle; $5.00 Shuttle Only
Prerequisite:  Some Experience Recommended.  See Note Below.

Join in on what has become a tradition for Dayton’s paddlesports community, the Wednesday Nite Paddle down our local waterway, the Mad River.  Enjoy the transition from an urban wilderness to the downtown Dayton skyline.  We paddle approximately three miles of what is considered “moving water” from Eastwood MetroPark to the Keowee Street Bridge.  New this year is the Mad River Play Feature, which is a class II rapid that you can either run or bypass by taking advantage of a recreational chute on river right. This river trip is three  miles and generally takes 1 ¼ to 1 ½ hours.

Shuttles leave from Whitewater Warehouse at approximately 5:30 and 6:15.  Equipment and shuttle slots are available on a first come first serve basis.  Dress to get wet, and be ready to have some Fun!

    Sorry folks. Was trying to get everything ready for the Green River trip and ran into a snafu last night with my trailer and I need to work on this tonight instead of enjoying this fine paddle. Brent will be there and plans to paddle. Hope to do this one again soon.

    Hi All! I'm new to the area... will be here for the week looking for a place to live... just took a job with Emerson and start in late August.... thought I'd meet some people during my trip down from Detroit this week. Any chance someone can look for me since I'm not familiar with faces yet, so I can paddle with the group. I can meet you by the registration booth at 5:00 p.m. Brown shoulder length hair, 5'2".

    I did this paddle last night, the 16th, and the 5:30 or first shuttle was full and gone by 5:20. I was of the second shuttle and it was full also.

      Frank, good to note. Yes, we did this trip a couple of weeks ago and we were on the third/last shuttle. They fill up rather quickly. I got there early and was waiting on others. Its a very busy registration process and if you are late, you're out of luck.
