Paddling Club


MPC - Wednesday April 30th Richville Pond

Date: 
Wed, 04/30/2014
Location: 
Richville Pond

Members have voted and paddles will be held on Wednesday Nights for the 2014 season. Please look over the information at the top of the MPC page to see what we require and expect of each participant. Early season paddling can still be questionable so make sure to dress appropriately as water temps are hovering in the low 40's.
This is a great paddle in early spring when the aquatic vegetation is low, later in the summer it can be difficult to paddle through. This is a VT fish and wildlife parking area and large enough for a dozen or so cars.
