Canoe the Cannon River

From: Sue
Sent on: Tuesday, July 7, 2009 7:14 PM
Announcing the final details for the Cannon River Canoe!

What: Canoe the Cannon River

When: July 11,[masked]:30 AM

Price: $15.00 per person

Where:
Welch Mill Canoeing & Tubing
Welch Village Road
Welch , MN 55089
[masked] or[masked]

We'll shoot for no more than 2 per canoe and for a nice sunny day. Bring your swimsuit, something to keep yourself hydrated with, a great laugh and a good sense of humor for a fun filled day.

Canoer Details: We will be taking the 12 mile ride and will meet at the Welch Canoeing & Tubing building in the heart of downtown Welch. (The town ain't that big, so you can't miss it.) They will then transport us up to the departure point (next to a laundry mat in Cannon Falls) and we'll set sail from there. Your journey can take 3.5 - 4 hours.

Kayaker Details: If you are bringing your own kayak they will transport you and your floatable device to the departure point for $20. Or if you would like meet at the laundry mat in Cannon Falls by 9:30am and then someone (probably me) can drive you back to your car in Welch.

Cost: $30 per canoe or $15 per person and that includes tax. Kayaks are a bit less, at around $15.

Regarding payment this is what their website states: "We do not accept credit, debit, or check cards as payment." (Looks like it'll be cash then.)



In a separate email I will send out my cell phone number so if people have questions they can call me either beforehand or enroute. Just be aware that cell phone coverage in Welch isn't too good.
