Weekly paddle-Chagrin River

Just a quick update on this trip, we'll paddle upriver as far as possible, about to the start of the chagrin metropark, then back out to the lake and hopefully catch the sunset. If you have one bring a light for your boat as they are required after sunset. Unfortunately, with the Livery being closed there are no boats to rent and no bathroom facilities available. The Port Authority has locked the gates to the boat ramps (you would need a season pass to get a key), but we can still put in at our usual place on the creek. So far as I've seen there has been no one down there to prevent us from putting in for free, Peggy still has not heard back from the Port Authority. Hope to see everyone there.

    Thanks for all the encouragement and help. It was good to be back on the water with the group. How do you get your name listed over in the "attended" list?

      Thought that I had RSVP'd. Maybe I just "joined the discussion" instead. BTW Just successfully used PayPal for my dues.

    Great night. A little cool at the end, but overall just beautiful. Great to see some old faces and a few new ones too!

    Physical therapist OK'd the paddle tonight - provided there isn't a lot of loose stone on the bank and I have some assistance with my boat and myself. ;-)

    I can also bring a spare boat, if someone needs one

    ATTENTION members with out boats. I have a boat available as a loaner tomorrow. Please rsvp and the first person to leave a comment here indicating they would like to use it can do so. I will acknowledge that person. If you are that person please make sure you are coming as I would hate to leave an unsecured boat unattended. One of our other members is helping out with an extra paddle and pfd.

      Thanks Peggy, I will have to borrow a paddle for her as well. And Yes, I'll remember my own paddle today

      You're welcome. Laura will bring an extra paddle and pfd. I have an extra light packed just in case.

    I will gladly help lunch boats on the creek or the boat ramp

    Kathy I don't know if anyone will be there to collect or not. Maybe make sure to have a few bucks on you just in case.

    I will be happy to assist you with your boat. I am sure someone else will help me if you are worried. You might be able to walk down safely if you do it side ways.

    Can we put in for free? There's a charge for boats to use the public ramp.

    Either way, I may not be able to negotiate the steep drop at the old livery or the slant as the public ramp. I'll see what my physical therapist says tomorrow.
