Full Moon Paddle and Monthly Meeting: Wednesday, July 20

Join us for a full moon paddle and our monthly meeting, Wednesday evening (July 20) at Quemahoning Reservoir Family Recreation Area. Forecast is for a beautiful evening!  Meet at 7 PM to paddle under the rising full moon on Quemahoning Reservoir. We meet at the family recreation area beach. Bring snacks to share and a folding chair. We usually have a fire after we paddle (and swap lies about our paddling skills) and some people grill a burger or sausage.  Boats must be have a state registration or launch permit; a whistle and at least one light (many people add battery powered LEDs for show and we have chem lights as well).  Please note: you must pay a $5 per vehicle fee to enter the Family Recreation Area. Failure to do so may result in fine. Contact Rick Bloom or Steve Podratsky for details.
