Paddle at Whitehall State Park

Morning everyone,

Due to expected poor weather I'm rescheduling this event to next Saturday May 3 at 8:30 . I hope everyone can still make it.

We'll meet at 8 am in the parking lot and be ready to paddle by 8:30. Looking forward to see everyone.

IMPORTANT: Do not program "Whitehall State Park" into your GPS as it will take you to the other side of the lake.  The parking for the boat launch is on Route 135 between Hopkinton and Westborough Centers.  The nearest Road to the launch is Dale Road in Hopkinton.

***PLEASE NOTE*** The organizers in this group are NOT trained leaders or instructors.  The organizers only set the time and place, each person participating in any group trip is responsible for their own safety.  Each participant is responsible for evaluating all relevant conditions for the trip and determining if their skills and equipment are appropriate for those conditions.

Required: PFD (worn), whistle.  Optional/recommended: pump/bailer, water, snack, change of clothes in drybag, sunglasses/visor.

    Hi everyone,

    Today was a great day to be on the water. It was nice meeting some new people, and certainly nice seeing some old faces. Looking forward to our next encounter.

    Enjoy

    John

    Sorry. As I tried to notify before it was even rescheduled, I have agree to a charity walk with my daughter that morning. I might drop by the launch and see everyone, but I should not take time to go on the water.

    I'll be paddling over from another part of the lake, so won't be in the parking lot. Will meet you on the water between 8:15-8:30 :-).

    I'd like to pay my dues. I'll catch you at the launch or takeout. ( Don't wait for me. )

    I'd be interested in this, especially if it's an easy-going paddle to get back into the swing of things. Opportunity to rent at the docks?

      Sorry, John, there are no rentals at Whitehall. We occasionally go to Hopkinton State Park or Lake Cochituate where there are rentals. We'll make sure to mention that if we plan a meetup at those locations.

      Thanks. I'll catch you on the next one. I'd like to get my own boat soon.

    Hi FreeSpirit,

    I'll watch the weather as we get closer to the event and if it is really cold I will certainly move up the time a bit.

    why the early time, especially at this time of year when it is not busy and much colder in the early AM?

    I have room for another paddler in my canoe in case there's someone who wants to go who doesn't have a boat. Message me if interested.

    Too early for me otherwise I would join you.

    Unless by any chance I'm expected at work, which I doubt.
