Middle Yough Trip – Sunday, June 11

First Middle Yough Trip of the summer this Sunday (June 11). This is a great place for beginners to practice paddling in moving water with small waves, holes and rocks (a few class II spots). Great paddle for experienced boaters on a beautiful river (about 9 miles). Meet at Ram Cat Parking Area around 10 AM to set shuttle, we will try to put-on around 11. We should reach Ohiopyle between 3 or 4 depending on current and how much we play. Bring lunch for on the river. Boats do not need to be registered. PFDs are mandatory. Contact Rick Bloom or Steve Podratsky for details and so we know who is attending (in case there is a change in details).
