Lower Madawaska, May 19 -21, 2012

Join us for the 10th spring paddle/wine and cheese party and find out first hand why mostly sane, reasonably intelligent and somewhat mature persons subject themselves to the vicissitudes of spring camping.
We paddle from above Aumonds Bay to the take out at Griffith, a distance of only 28 km. The pace is leisurely with only the Sunday being a full day of paddling and most of that spent on the Snake Rapids section of the river. Lots of time to play, chat and nibble! Rapids will range from Grade 1 to 4 and there are a couple of short portages around falls. Water levels are likely to be quite high and cold. In the past we have had sun, rain, hail and snow…all on the same day, so participants will need to dress and pack appropriately. Suitable for intermediate level paddlers. Limit six boats. Book early as this trip “sells out” most years. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT PARTICIPANTS SHOULD REGISTER DIRECTLY WITH THE ORGANIZER BY EMAIL AT ldurst@rogers.com. SELF-REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.
