Marion County Aquaholics Paddlers Group, Inc.



Paddle Often, Paddle Safely  

    Our members have asked that when you send me your write-up for the paddle that you tc please when possible include as many of the following items as you know. 
    :Is there a parking or launch fee if so how much or about how much.
    :Are there toilets at the launch or take-out or do they need to seek facilities           before arriving at the launch area.
    :Please rate your paddle as Hard  - Medium - or Easy
    :Is the paddle downstream  -  upstream - both.  
    :Is there a shuttle.
    :Some members would like the option of going out to eat after a paddle.  This is always optional and the tc is not obligated to choose the place and does not have to participate.  Just mention the option so members may plan to bring money to pay for the meal.  Members who wish to eat can decide where, on or after the paddle. 


If you wish to go on any of these paddles please remember to call the trip coordinator to let

them know you plan on going.  Make sure you leave your name and phone number.  If there is a

need to call you the TC will be able to reach you.
