Group River Paddle .  Two dates June 12 and August 14th

Plans are to meet on the Newberry public parking area behind the dam, off Hwy 34 at 9am Saturday.  We plan to
start around 9:30.  It is probably a 2.5-3 hr paddle down to Chappells Hwy 39.   We ask you plan to have a vehicle at the Chappells take out, if you need a ride back, let us know we will try to arrange this.

Please come with two cars, we are asking for you to take your vehicle to the take out/end location before we leave and then use your other car to come meet us at the starting point.  We will help if needed.   Thank you.  Take out directions:  Continue on Hwy 34 toward Newberry.  Turn right (hwy 39) at the 4 way stop on Chappells, cross the bridge and take immediate road to right. Parking is under the bridge.  About a 10 minute drive from start.

Meet Location:  East Side Parking on Newberry side of Dam.  Park in grass on left as you approach parking area.

Plans are to have a group Kayak/Canoe paddle down the Saluda starting below the dam and pulling out at Silver Street.  We are estimating 3-4 hrs.  We are working on logistics for take out location and transportation back to dam area.
