A dauntless group of paddlers, Barb Rawdon, Lisa Weed, Jackie Hoglund, Jean MacAulay, Sean Rodammer, Ian L, and Darren Mould headed out from Violettes lock shortly after 9:00 AM. After paddling only a bit down the GW canal we were joined by Mike Baummer and Gordy Lang, makig it 10. We surfed and played, always on the lookout for new wood, of which we found none. A substantial mass of garbage was collected, all but the wheelbarrow wheel and its tire were placed in Jackie’s recently won trash bag. Darren displayed a flawless roll and some members got a bit more damp than expected! Mike Baummer demonstrated the ability to tow a fully laden canoe as we paddled back up the C&O.
