Summer Bash in The Forks


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.
