Default Grand River 4-13-14

We will be meeting at 10:30, Sunday 13 April at Hidden Valley Park, in Madison, Ohio. The target section will be from Hidden Valley to Mason's Landing in Painesville, Ohio, Water and weather cooperating. I will be bringing the Subway Party subs, any additional finger foods or deserts you can bring will be enjoyed on the water as well. Please dress accordingly, as water levels and Temps, will probably be on the extreme side. I will be using my trailer for a pretrip shuttle, another trailer would greatly aid in the smoothness and ease of this burden. The Grand is running at seven ft above normal levels, keep your fingers crossed for a dry week. Feel free to call for questions or concerns at: (440) 228-3261 Thanks

Rich

Default Trailers for the Grand

Thanks for offering, I would hate to have you trailer all the way from Mercer just to help out and not using it after all those miles. Any body else coming up with a trailer we can use? In years past, two or three show up, and we are somehow able to get by with just one extra.

Default i should be there..

Hello.. planning on being there, as long as i don't get lost on the way..

Since i have never done anything on Grand River i went to the river page, time wise, its great, but trip 8 doesn't have any notes about rapids or anything else..

can anyone give a quick rundown of what to expect and if there are any places a spray skirt would be needed especially with the current conditions?

unfortunately, i still haven't found a skirt that fits my cheap boat, so i hope to just not dunk too badly if its cool..

Talking

Brian

While rich is the King of the grand, and hidden valley park is off of St Rt 528 just south of intersate 90.

The Grand mostly has class 1 riffles, and depending which section we do you might run in to a class II.

What type of boat do you have?

I do have a half a have skirt I will bring and see if it will fit. It does help with front on waves.

I hope no one minds, I am going to bring my GO PRO camera and put part of our trip on You Tube and as usual I will have my regular camera.

Cool Grand River trip Sunday 4/13/2014:

Rich, etc.
The Newsletter says 11:00 a.m. for the trip - please don't leave anyone behind (especially me, since I always arrive at the last minute). The weather looks good - you always seem to get a good day for this trip. See you tomorrow.
