Default June 9th Paddle

River-Fest Paddle for the Public
Up Dates


Mark Vallecorsa has done so much work for this paddle, that it is amazing.
Mark has been in talks with the Trumbull County Sheriffs and Girard Fire Department. Due to Marks hard work both departments will be helping us with the safety side of the paddle.
Girard has already scouted the river and will have at least one maybe two boats in the water. The Sheriffs will have an ATV vehicle on the tracks and maybe an officer or two in Kayaks.
We still need to bring extra throw ropes and safety gear as the departments don't have many throw ropes.

After talking to Mark everything looks good with the FOMR. As of Tuesday there are 7 registered for the event. This isn't counting any of TCT members, just what has signed up on the FOMR face book page.
We will be watching the weather and water levels very closely.
On May 27th a group got to do a scout trip and the level was perfect. 2.70 ft at West Ave gauge. Above 3ft the water will start to pour over the portage area and could cause it to be slippery or be a total wash out at higher levels.

If you plan on Attending please text me or email me
330-766-3129 or tctnewsletter@gmail.com

A head count is very important for this paddle.

Mike,

I will be attending. I will be volunteering at the regist ration for the FOMR. As soon as that's done I can help you.

My first time assisting on a paddle so put me where you think best.

Also I have a trow bag, I'll bring. Even it I don't get put at the trouble spot who ever does cover that can borrow mine.

Default Plan to come

Plan to be there June 9th. I don't know the location of the put in drop off in Girard. Assume I drop off my boat in Girard and leave my car at B&O and get shuttle back from there.
