Marion County Aquaholics Paddlers Group, Inc.



Paddle Often, Paddle Safely  

Future Paddles


Our members have asked that when you send me your write-up for the paddle that you please, when possible include as many of the following items as you know.


    :Is there a parking or launch fee if so how much or about how much.

    :Are there toilets at the launch or take-out or do they need to seek facilities before arriving

     at the launch area.

    :Please rate your paddle as Hard  - Medium - or Easy

    :Is the paddle downstream  -  upstream - both.  

    :Is there a shuttle.

    :Some members would like the option of going out to eat after a paddle.


This is always optional and the tc is not obligated to choose the place and does not have to participate.  Just mention the option so members may plan to bring money to pay for the meal.  Members who wish to eat can decide where, on or after the paddle.


Our Aquaholics trip for this Saturday, Dec.2, will be on the lower Waccassassa River / Wekiva Run. This is a medium level paddle, upstream (as far as we can go) and back. We will meet before 9 am at the boat ramp at the end of Hwy326 near the Gulf. No fee; no shuttle; toilet available; bring lunch or snacks; car pooling suggested; should takeout about 1:30 pm.

T/C is Chris Spontak, 352-694-5986, always call, no text.

Also, our Christmas picnic will be Saturday, Dec.16, at Rio Vista Park on Rainbow River. Please plan on bringing a side dish, and let Terry Sechler know, 503-510-8045, call or text.


If you wish to go on any of these paddles, please remember to call the trip 

coordinator to let them know you plan on going.  Make sure you leave your 

name and phone number.  If there is a need to call you, the TC will be able to 

reach you.
