John Snitzer has called this trip for Seneca Creek - meeting at Rileys Lock at NOON. Please tell John if you‘re coming. We‘ll shuttle up to Dawsonville stream-gauge below MD 28 and expect to get down to Riley‘s by 3:30 - swift water, and hoping for no strainers - this is our first time down there this year. 550 cfs is a bit rich diet for a stream with an 85 cfs minimum - that we‘ve been doing in the 100-250 cfs range, so be advised.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Former text:

and Tim Tilson are planning a TBD Thursday trip. This will be dependent on Wednesday rainfall and the predicted cooler than normal weather for Thursday. The decision may not be made until Thursday morning thus necessitating an early afternoon start time. Also it will be warmer by mid-day.

Potential candidates are:

1. Seneca Breaks, (returning via attainment or the canal depending on the wind situation)

2. Lower Seneca Creek (3 miles of Class I from Berryville Road to Riley’s Lock)

3. Accotinck (small No Va creek 3.5 miles with one Class II)

If you are interested contact John at navajuela@comcast.net or Tim at hmslydia@msn.com.

Meet at VL at 10:00 for paddle down the Geo Washington Canal (or Seneca Breaks if some so desire.) Please be prompt. We‘re putting in at 10:00 to let the day warm up a wee bit as the temps head toward 67 degrees - water temps about 55, so warm gear is still a sensible idea. Sunny and clear. Please let me know you are coming. //////

Tim Tilson will lead a trip on the Remington to Kelly’s Ford section of the Rappahannock. This is a 4.5 mile class II (+) run. There is 3 miles of flat water followed by a mile + of a rock garden with two major rapids (Sandy Beach and Piggley Wiggly). The latter can easily be avoided.

Remington Drug store is now open so there may be an ice cream stop afterwards. We will meet at the Put In by the bridge on Business Rte 15/29 in Remington at 1030. For those unfamiliar with this put in, meet Tim at the McDonald’s in Opal [10068 James Madison Highway (Rte 15/29) Warrenton VA 20186] at 1015. Please contact Tim Tilson at hmslydia@msn.com, or 703-273-9436 (land line home) to let him know you are coming and where you will meet him.
