A LIFE VEST!
Each participant will be required to follow all reasonable instructions
given to them by the group leaders in the interest of safety.
Failure to do so will result in the removal of the violator,
with no refund of the registration fees.
There will be power
boat safety support on the river. The pace of the group will
be set by a designated "lead canoe". There will be
no passing of this "lead canoe" for any reason. There
is also a sweep canoe bringing up the rear. Stay ahead of the
sweep canoe. Violators of these safety rules will be asked to
leave the group, with no refund of their registration fee.
This trip averages 20 miles a day. The current is negligle,
so this is not a float trip. We paddle at a steady pace, with
breaks at reasonable intervals. To judge your readiness, try
paddling 10 miles or so somewhere close to home.
