Come out and join us on the Hooch before the social. We will start at Azalea Park and paddle down river toward the cliffs marked by the flag. If time permits, we can explore some of the little inlets on the way back upstream. Just to be clear, this is a paddle event and we will be going back upstream to the takeout.

Fair warning - the river is very high right now and the boat ramp is flooded, but that should make entry and exit even easier. The flow rate might be a little higher than usual, but good news...less chance of getting stuck in the shallows!

I plan on staying dry, but I am bringing a change of clothes for the social for my personal comfort. More good news, your boat can dry during the social and be ready for string when you get home!

This event will be cancelled for inclement weather, though the current forecast is for a high of 70 and only overcast skies.
