Description

Hatfield Dam Whitewater Release, September 14th

Why does this summer keep dragging on? I just want some simple splishy splashy whitewater good times.

Come join me for a fun little class II run down the Black River on Saturday September 14th. This will be a single day trip up to Hatfield, WI (~2.25 hr drive).

Requirements:

R2 or higher in a kayak (we may be able to accommodate R1 paddlers with approval and enough safety boaters). Contact me if you are have an R1 rating and want to attend.

Goal:

My objective of this trip is for R2 paddlers to become more comfortable reading and running class II rapids, surfing in features, and get practice rolling their kayak in rapids

Cost:

Fuel:  $15-20

Food: You will be responsible for your own lunch and bring some money for dinner on the way home.

Plan:

-Depart Madison on Saturday September 14th no later than 8:00am

-Surf, spin, splat, and squirt our way down the Black River from 11am-3pm

-Return to Madison (but not until I get my Culver’s burger and concrete mixer) around 6-7pm

 Let me know if you can drive and transport kayaks!
