Like the previous years, we will be on the Glade Creek to Grandview section of the New River.
If you are experienced with this section or an experienced (class III comfortable) paddler sign up and help out.
For those unfamiliar with this event... The club has partnered with the National Youth Science Foundation to give an introduction to whitewater paddling to their delegates. The NYSF delegates are 17-18 year old students from all across the county and even a few other countries that were selected to attend the month long Science Camp in WV.

Harry, Betty and I will be there Saturday and Sunday. We will have two extra kayaks, skirts, paddles and 1 helmet. The extra kayaks will be a Dagger 10.5 and a LL 69. We can also bring a single duckie or a Sea Eagle double if you need them.

I would like to be there for both days, but I can't commit for sure now. In any event, I will have a kayak and a sit-on-top with all gear available. If you need extra helmets, pfds or skirts, let me know.
Hey Harry, I'm in for Sunday. Not sure about Saturday, you know, new job and all, but will do Saturday too if I don't hafta work. Where is burnwood cg?
Burnwood CG is just off Route 19 north of the NRG bridge. If you are driving north on Route, cross the bridge and take to first left turn as soon as you cross the bridge. If you are driving south on Route 19, turn right just before the bridge. (The road is across Route 19 from the Canyon Rim Visitor Center.

I will be sending out an email to all the people that have volunteered with the details for this weekend.
Friday: Burnwood Campground will be available at 1200 hrs(noon). Burnwood Campground is just north of the New River Gorge Bridge off Rt19. Saturday: Science Campers will be arriving at the Glade Creek Put in at 11:00. Volunteers need to drop off all loaned out boats and gear by 1000. Pizza by 5pm. Sunday: Science campers will be arriving at Putin at 1000, so we need to have everything ready by 0930.
Notes: Remember, we are doing this event for the Science Campers, let's make this a great experience for them. If you are loaning a boat and skirt, put skirt over cockpit so that we can keep these together. We will be doing wet exits a bit differently this year. It might be slower, but the goal is to reduce any sort of confusion for the campers and volunteers. Have everything marked, including the equipment you are paddling.
