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. 

For members who have not yet renewed for 2019, please do so by mail, or at the meeting,

or at a trip.  The 2018 email list was closed out after the March meeting.
