Lower madawaska River Wine & Cheese paddle THIS EVENT NOW FULL

EVENT IS FULLY BOOKED May 16-18th LOWER MADAWASKA RIVER Larry Durst, 905- 415-1152 or ldurst@rogers.com . Join us for the annual 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 canoe 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 usually “sells out”. ☺
