George Washington Canal

The Sunday paddlers will return to Violettes Lock this week to run the George Washington Canal via the C&O Canal loop. The Little Falls gauge is projected at 3.1' and steady, which means that a couple of waves that have been MIA for the past two years should be back in play. Weather forecast is sunny and high in the mid 90s so bring plenty of water and sunscreen. Lifejackets are required and, for kayakers, helmets and sprayskirts are highly recommended; please advise if you need safety equipment. We will meet at Violettes Lock at 9:00 to put in. I am coordinating this week - please advise me (, 443 542 8779) if you plan to join or just drop in. ? SYOTR, Wayne McD
