National River Cleanup Week.

National River Cleanup Week is coming soon.  Please join us on Tuesday June 10th on the Souhegan River.

Help us clean the putins, takeouts, surrounding woods, road, and parking areas.

Bring gloves, bug spray, drinking water, and wear appropriate footwear and clothing for walking in the woods.  This is rain or shine, so rain apparel might be needed.

If someone could bring a wheelbarrow, it would be greatly appreciated.  George will provide event trash bags, arrange for removal of the collected trash and get us permission to park at Horseshoe Falls if necessary.

If time allows and equipment is provided, we could attempt to remove a tree when we are done.

Meet at the upper put in at 8am-or later.  Anyone willing to put any amount of time into this will be appreciated.

Special Winnipesaukee Test Release

The NH Department of Environmental Services has again this year agreed to do a release on the Winnipesaukee River the weekend of June 14-15.

We encourage all paddlers to participate.  The more interest there is the more likely the state will be open to future regular releases.

This will be on both the upper [class I/II] section and lower [class III] sections.  The release is scheduled to be 1000 cfs

Additionally, there will be a NESS WW race in the town of Tilton on the upper section of the river.

Summer Bash in The Forks

Image

Join us for the 2013 MVP Family Weekend Trip to West Forks, Maine August 8-10.  Paddling opportunites on the Dead and Kennebec rivers.   We'll have all the rafts, duckies, and other fun club boats there as well.

The club as reserved the group site at Webb's (Appleton's RiverDrivers).

This weekend has the to get family members out (in a raft or other inflatable) on the river at a moderate flow; to help people stepping up from class 2 to cl 3 out on a river at a level that allows the experienced boater to have a lot of fun and still not be too intimidating for the paddlers stepping up..

We will "organize" ourselves about 8AM (Saturday) at Webb's.  We should be departing 9'ish for the river.  Anyone wishing to take Webb's shuttle instead of driving should go to Appleton's about 8:30am. Reservations are not needed (cost $18 per canoe/kayak and paddler).

Sunday there is an early-morning Kennebec "Fish Flow".  Release level is 500cfs (mostly class II/II+ with one class III spot). It's afund run, mostly rock gardens and nice surfing. The gorge is beautiful at that leve. It also allows you to see what causes the bigger features on the river at higher levels.Leaving Webb's at 7am; plan on being shuttled and on the river by 8am.  Jump out a the bottom of the gorge to shuttle back up to the put-in for the 10am regular release.
