We are having our August Full Moon Paddle Sunday, the 22nd, at the Quemahoning Family Recreation Area. Meet around 7:30 at the beach. We typically paddle a bit before, have snacks and then hit the water to watch the moon rise (around 9). Afterwards we have a fire, snacks to share, and swap stories about our boating adventures. Boats must be registered, PFDs are mandatory, and you need a whistle and light on your boat. We have some chem lights but many folks add battery powered LEDs to be legal and for fun. This a quiet paddle, if you want music, please use headphones (i.e. earbuds). Contact Rick Bloom or Steve Podratsky for details.
Middle Yough Trip, Sunday, August 8. Great beginner trip for folks learning to boat on moving water and in mild rapids. Beautiful trip for experienced boaters as well. We meet at RamCat Parking area at 10 AM to set shuttle and launch around 11:30. This is about a 3-4 hr trip depending on water levels and weather. Boats do not need to be registered but PFDs are mandatory. Please note that kayaks should have some form of flotation (either air bags or sealed compartments) in case of a swim. Bring lunch for on the river. Folks often gather after to relax and talk boating at a local pub. Contact Rick Bloom (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
The Que has been holding steady folks. We will have a release BOTH days this weekend. July 31 and Aug 1st. Enjoy. Not often we have water in August.
