We will be having a semi-annual paddle on the Raystown Branch of the Juniata River on Saturday, April 29; from Ritchey Bridge to Bruce Penrod’s cabin (about 8 miles). This is a beautiful section of the Juniata River. Relatively flat with a few good riffles. Clean water and great scenery. Good for recreational kayaks and beginners. Bring a light lunch or snacks for on the river. We will have a cook out at Bruce’s place after the paddle. The club will supply meat (burgers, chicken, and maybe some other non vegetarian offerings), buns and such. Feel free to bring a covered dish or snacks and drinks for yourself (or to share). We meet at Bruce’s cabin (461 Penrods Bech Road, Hopewell, PA 16650) at 10 to drop off food and set shuttle. If you want, meet us at Ritchey Bridge, which is about 1.5 miles east of Rt 26 on Ritchey Bridge Rd. at 11 AM.
April 2021 in the time of Covid-19We are still keeping a low profile. Covid is still bad. Paddling is good but please don't socialize without a mask before or after paddling. Hopefully next month will be better. Release on Saturday, April 10th. This is a one day release in order to conserve water for May releases. April meeting of the BCC will be held on Wednesday, April 14, at the Crow's Nest (510 Tire Hill Rd, Johnstown 15905) at 7 PM. Stony Cleanup will be held on Saturday, April 24. Meet at Greenhouse Park at 9 AM. We will also have a single day release on this day as well. Too dry for full two day releases.
