Greetings, Possible Paddlers -
Linda Hammond at North Star Canoe
Rentals has retired from the canoe rental business, but she is happy to
let us use her canoes, and Bob Von Baltzer has volunteered to use his
carrier for transport. Bob is now playing a major role in cleaning the
river from Hartland to Claremont. With thanks to Linda and Bob, our
flotilla will float again.
One year we didn't have enough
volunteers, and at other times we have had the minimum. Your
participation is important! If we are having trouble getting volunteers
and let Bob know soon, he might be able to free up some people from
Hypertherm. It's good to sign up soon.
The date: Saturday, July 23rd.
The time: 9:00 AM
The place: North Star Canoe Rental
over the bridge in Ascutney (131) into New Hampshire, turn left at the
lights (Route 12) and go north 2.3 miles. North Star is on the left just
before the railroad tracks.
The plan: one group heads south
to Ashley's Landing in NH opposite Weathersfield Bow while the other
group heads to the cornfield above the Windsor Covered Bridge and
paddles down to North Star. If you are flexible as to which trip you
take, that's nice, but the trip to Ashley's is a bit longer, so let me
know if you have a preference.
We have not yet set a rain date, but if
you can't join us on the 23rd, and might on a later date, let me know.
Hoping for a good turnout!
