Captain Morgan's Boats and Beers (Rescheduled)

OK, so this is the reschedule of May cancellation. If you already signed on to the May date, please resign so I can keep a headcount.

Captain Morgan's Boats and Beers is a kayaking and brew pub trip to Asheville.  We are going to be kayaking on the French Broad River with a trip to the brew pub after.

OK, we leave 9AM sharp from Greenville, drive to the Asheville rental location to rent kayaks for $38/person. Includes the shuttle to the put-in. $14 if you have your own kayak. They require a waiver, and if you don't swim, this is not for you. So call the Center below and ask to be added to the trip using the time & group below.

Kayak Start Time:  11:00 a.m. 
If this time gets booked by others, the trip is full even if we haven't filled the 20 slots

Group:  Upstate Hiking led by Tim

Payment:  You will need to reserve with your credit card.

After the ~2.5hr 7 mi trip, we'll take a short drive to Asheville to grab something to eat at a brew pub.

    Another great time with a fun group of people. A relaxing float down the river, with awesome weather, scenic views, good beer, and delicious food. Especially when you are so hungry from all the paddling. :-) Thanks to Tim and Caroline. Already looking forward to the next meetup.
