The Wednesday Night Paddler (TWNP) Brown's Bridge

 

There are spots reserved for renters at all paddles even if the paddle is otherwise full.  Renters and members who have paid the voluntary annual dues will receive priority on the wait list in that order.

Our  now world famous regular Wednesday Night Paddles have begun for the season.  This paddle is on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at 6:00 PM.  The time is the "on the water time".  Please plan to arrive early enough to have your boat and gear ready to paddle promptly at 6:00 PM.  We DO NOT wait for people on Wednesday Nights.

This Wednesday night paddle will find us on the water from the Browns Bridge Recrreation Area on Rocky Gorge Reservoir.  Triadelphia Reservoir is owned by the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC).  To paddle here you must purchase a $6.00 day use permit or a $70.00 season permit.  With over 13 miles of water between Triadelphia and Rocky Gorge Reservoirs and 7 different kayak launch sites we'll visit the WSSC properties often during the season and I suspect regular paddlers in the area will find that the season pass will pay for itself quickly.  You can purchase day or season permits on line and print them out at home here: http://www.wsscwater.com

The Wednesday Night Paddler (TWNP) is a chance for everyone to paddle off the work day stress while working on paddling technique and staying in shape.  Of course it becomes quite a social event too.  TWNP is an opportunity for everyone regardless of boat type or skill level to paddle in the safety and camaraderie of a group as long as you have access to a boat, PFD and paddle.

There will be rental kayaks (including a paddle and PFD) available for this paddle at the Wednesday Night price of $30.00.  To request one you must answer the rental question when you RSVP.

    While Meetup won't even respond to my emails regarding dues collection anymore, they were more than happy to agree to a post event "Good to Smack You" button for situations like last night. The food was especially yummy last night. Everything from great tapenade to chocolate covered strawberries. Thanks for coming every one.

    Hey Chuck,
    Sent you a text. I decided it is too cold for Kayaking tonight. I was hoping it would warm up, but is still only in the 60's and drizzly. I don't have the gear to do the cold weather kayaking (especially when getting wet), so I'd like to wait and try again on a warmer day.

    Now I can't make it because of some unexpected family obligations. I'm sorry I won't get to see everyone. Since the trip isn't full, I hope my late notice won't count against me.

      No worries Lou. Thanks for letting us know. I know Wednesday nights can be difficult despite the best laid plans.

    Is the parking and put-in east or west of the bridge? Google maps (satellite view) shows a possible spot about 200 yards east of the bridge.

    • Chuck

      The boat ramp and parking are 9 the Montgomery County or WEST side of the bridge Lou
