Kick off summer with a paddle on the Chena from Graehl to University Bridge. Catch up with old friend and meet new ones at our Paddle and Potluck meetup on Saturday, June 1.

The past two years our traditional upper Chena Spring Paddle and Potluck has been canceled, as high water, ice, or log jam conditions were deemed unsuitable for less experienced paddlers.  This year we decided to have our Paddle and Potluck on the Chena through town and then have a potluck function at the Chena River Recreation Site Pavilion.

We will meet up at Graehl Landing at 1:00 pm to set up shuttles to the Chena Recreation site.  We will try to get on the water between 1:30 and 2:00 pm and will have a leisurely paddle to the University Bridge takeout. Once we shuttle, we will have our Potluck picnic at the Pavilion.  Bring a dish to share. We will have at least one small propane grill in addition to We have the Pavilion reserved starting at 3:00 pm and need to have it cleaned up and be out of there before 9:00 pm.

Folks who can’t join us at 1:00 pm or who want to float other sections of the river are welcome to join us at the potluck.  New members are welcome. You can join at the event.

Questions? Contact John Schauer after Tuesday, May 28. ( I’ll probably be paddling until then.) 907-460-6290
