Charles River Spring Paddle Saturday 5/9/2015

Postby Ken R » Wed Apr 29, 2015 9:49 pm

I'll start by saying I forget how to post a trip.

When: Saturday 5/9, Picnic Lunch and social hour 11:00-Noon. Butts in boat 12:30.
Where: The parking lot near the Charles River Canoe and Kayak kiosk across from Harvard Stadium at 1071 Soldiers Field Road

The plan:
Head down river to the locks then head back upriver to the launch spot or continue upriver depending on time and conditions.

Please reply if you are planning to attend.

Because it will be a Saturday and the parking lot may be busy, I recommend carpooling if possible.

I'm hoping to relive last years spring paddle with one afternoon last spring.

All,
Does anyone know the time restrictions on the parking lot?
If that lot is 2 hour parking we may want to change the launch spot to Magazine beach. That lot has 4 hour parking.

Ken, we would be up for an earlier start. That might help with crowd(s) too. Supposed to be a beauty of a weekend.
