Special Wednesday Paddle (SCA Fundraiser)

This is not our ordinary Wednesday Paddle!!  Come out and enjoy a unique evening with Take It Outdoors and the volunteers of the Schuylkill Canal Association.  Many of us enjoy the unique paddling experience we find in Phoenixville/Mont Clare, PA.  We are fortunate to have a unique & historic place to paddle with the canal and the only remaining lock on the Schuylkill River.  What many of us don’t see is all the hard work done on a 100% volunteer basis.  Lock 60 has an amazing crew of volunteers who selflessly donate their time, equipment and money keeping the canal functioning.  This year alone they spent thousands of dollars in man hours and equipment clearing trees out of the canal so we are able to navigate it’s waters...and recently two more trees have fallen across the canal.

In an effort to support their cause, and say thank you, we are going to have a fund raising paddle.  All of the money collected will go directly to the Schuylkill Canal Association.  Come out and paddle with some of the volunteers and show them our appreciation for all of their hard work!!  

Meet at Lock 60 at 6:00pm – click on the link below for a map of the put in: - https://www.google.com/maps/place/Lock+60+Recreation+Area/@40.144674,-75.508518,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x89c6919124b80885:0xe3a4023c5bd851a5

Extra incentive – If we raise $[masked] I will paddle the 5 mile loop on a SUP Board in a dress.

Come out and show your appreciation to all the volunteers who work so hard to give us countless paddles and memories.

      If I told you that I am bringing a kayak for you the above massage of "kayak rentals are sold out" does not apply to you.
