Looks good. Any idea what time the safety class is going to be on the 16th? I just bought a kayak and that would be a good time to get it wet for the first time.

I was telling a guy at work about the safety class. He asked if they allow canoes at the pool.

Default TCT schedule

Was not able to make the last two meetings, but am very excited about this years schedule. After the long cold winter, that just does not want to go away, I am more than ready to hit the water. The June TCT Camping at the Overflow area in Tionesta, with scheduled floats on Saturday and Sunday with a campfire/fireside feast in between is a trip not to be missed. Thanks Mike, and am looking forward to once again hosting the Grand River trip again on 04-13-14.

What time will the trip meet/depart the B&O station? I would like to help unload boats (as I need to borrow one along with equipment).

Yes, what time is this all set to begin?
This wll be my first time on this section of the Mahoning and 1st with your club, so I'm unfamiliar with your routine, and what to expect.

Is there an established shuttle?
Any specifics we need to be aware of (Portages, ice-flow, lunch plans, recent Mahoning River Monster sightings)?
The weather is suppose to break, and we are suppose to see some sunlight and possibly a high in the 50's (WOOT! WOOT!), but thats still chilly on the water so obviously we'll need to dress appropriatly, but is there any real concern of getting wet on this section (assuming no-one accidentally ends up swimming), or is it a pretty slow dry float?

Thanks in advance for the info, see you sunday at ? o'clock,
Mike D (the other (non-Presidental) one).

I'm not sure exactly which trip he is referencing when he says the B&O trip. But if he means the one where we take passengers for a ride for Riverfest that is on Saturday June 7th. The start time for Riverfest is still undetermined.

The following day we are taking a trip from the Girard dam to the B&O. The time for that probably is not determined yet either. You could check who the trip leader is on the calendar page and maybe ask them.

If there are any ice flows on June 7th I'm packing my bags and heading south, that will be the last straw!

Well, I was referencing the trip scheduled for this Sunday (March 30th) "B&O Station to Union Street Bridge - Trip Leader: Mike Danko" and assumed zzrufus1 was as well considering it's the very next item on the calendar...

Oh, I didn't even see that one. I was thinking Grand River was the first trip of the year. Time to check the forecast.
