Sat. 6/30/18 Day Event: Canoeing Trip on the Brazos
June 30, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
RSVP DEADLINE IS MONDAY THE 25th AT 1600.
Each canoe has 2 seats but can accommodate for an additional small child to sit at the bottom in the middle. We might split people and take turns to make it efficient, but we definitely need a head count.
FREE EVENT! BRING YOUR OWN FOOD/SNACKS/WATER!
We decided to give people a break from the summer heat and make this a day event. It will make for a longer day, but you will be cool at night.
MEET AT 0800 SHARP AT ROCHELLE’S. It is about 2 hrs drive from Irving. Test your GPS ahead of time. Not all apps give you the right directions or can even find the spot. You can find detailed directions on their website below.
Here is there website: http://www.rochellescanoeandkayakrental.com/
Our trek will be the “The One Day Trip (10 miles)”: http://www.rochellescanoeandkayakrental.com/trips/
Uniforms not required unless you want to down a Class B t-shirt. There will be no Mass.
We will go on a 9.5 miles canoeing trek down the Brazos Saturday. It is the same trek we made 2 years ago. The river should make it much easier though. It has a 200 CFS (cubic ft/sec) flow, which I was told would be an 8 on a 1 to 10 “awesome” scale! This should make for about 5 to 5-1/2 hrs of canoeing depending on breaks and pace.
Feel free to camp as individuals. Camping will NOT be part of this TSG1 event. It is only $10/car/night to camp and is 1st come – 1st serve for the spots. Please contact Rochelle if interested. Let me know if you plan on doing so, so I can let others know. The farthest campsite down the dirt road is right next to a river access point, great for fishing, swimming, and it has a swing rope on a tree over the water. That was a huge hit last time. Definitely the best spot. Each campsite has a small grill.
Bring swimming clothes and fishing gear! If you plan on fishing or trolling, remember that a license is required for anyone over 16 years old. We can expect the following fish:
Largemouth and smallmouth bass
Blue and flathead catfish
White bass and crappie
REMEMBER THAT you are responsible for your own food and water. We will all eat lunch together, but TSG1 is not bringing any supplies.
Please do not delay in registering since we must reserve canoes ahead of time.
RSVP DEADLINE IS MONDAY THE 25TH AT 1600.
