WHEN:
DATE: 08/19/2016 - 08/21/2016
TIME: All Day (prompt start, estimated end)


DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water! Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, & carpooling directions.)

Coming up in 1.5 WEEKS is the Lehigh Spectacular.  Shannon and Gwen will be coordinating a weekend of camping and boating on the Lehigh August 20 & 21st.  Looking for volunteers to lead a lower Lehigh section trip also.  Trips will be posted individually the week before for sign ups.

Camping will be at Jim Thorpe Camping Resort.  This campground is near Mauch Chunk, but without the state park rules.  https://www.jimthorpecamping.com/#!online-reservations/citl  Phone # is 570-325-2644.  Gwen & Shannon will be on sites 47 and 49.

For those who don’t want to camp, but still want to join in the fun, Janice looked into availability at the Canal Side.  Here are the details for that:   The Canalside house and bunkhouse are available for boarding for Saturday, August 20th.   Call Rod at Canalside to reserve your spot.  Friday night is open mostly too.  484-629-9736

For Friday and Saturday evening dinners and campfire, the Copes and Rossinis are planning to cookout at the campground then have a campfire, (sites 47 and 49 – likely at Shannon’s site with the camper).

We would love it if anyone wants to pack up their dinner and cookout with us and/or join us for campfire.

 

 

We are expecting to have at least a Lower Gorge (Rockport to Glen Onoko) run on Saturday, an Upper Gorge (whitehaven to Rockport) run on Sunday, possibly a Ladies of the Lehigh trip, and a Glen Onoko to _____  somewhere downstream trip also!

The trips will be open to recent and not so recent graduates of the whitewater training and to experienced boaters, too!!!  If you aren’t comfortable with the Whitehaven section, we will have at least one trip, or more depending on interest, on the class II section.  If you are interested in attending, but need gear or advice, please feel free to e-mail Shannon  for help- slavelle_lg at hotmail dot com.

Go to the Wilmington trail club paddlers Facebook group to vote for the trip you’d like us to run!
