Monocacy Canoe Club & Mason-Dixon Canoe Cruisers Cruise Schedule

To Join a Trip....

Contact the Trip Leader during the week prior to the scheduled trip.   See contact information on schedule.   Please do NOT just show up.

For weekend camping trips and trips more than 50 miles away, it is a good idea to contact the Trip Leader by Thursday evening, as many travel to campsites near the river on Friday evening.

Notice and Assumption of Risk

Paddling can be dangerous and physically demanding.   Paddlers take personal responsibility for their safety.   By participating in paddling activities, you acknowledge an assumption of the risks involved, which could include serious injury or death.

MDCC Banquet & Paddling Gear Sale - 1:00 PM;
Bolivar Community Center, 60 Panama St, Harpers Ferry, WV 25425.

This is a "pot luck dinner" so bring your favorite dish and/or dessert to share. MDCC will provide non-alcoholic beverages. If you choose to enjoy your favorite adult beverage, before or during the banquet, please do not over indulge as this is a family event.

We are looking for someone with a glowing personality to MC this event and to perhaps provide a projector,/projector screen to show videos, and sound equipment. Dan Eigenbrode has provided the equipment and done an excellent job acting as "Master of Ceremonies" for the banquet as long as I've been a member of the MDCC. Dan has ask that we find someone else to handle those duties this year. So please, unless you want to listen to my boring self, someone step up and let your talent pour out. If you can provide equipment but don't want to handle MC duties that helps as well.

We need videos and photos to share. I know many of you have cameras and/or a gopro so get busy editing, unless it is very exciting you will lose your audience after 6 minutes, so....... Lets keep the videos PG, this is a family event, and try not to embarrass anyone too much. If you want to submit a video to share contact me at baerlypaddle@gmail.com

If you have a nomination for an award contact me at baerlypaddle@gmail.com Remember if you nominate someone for an award you must present the award, speech and all. Again; lets keep the awards PG, this is a family event, and try not to embarrass anyone too much :lol:

Paddling Gear; if you have outdoor and/or paddling gear that you want to get rid of bring it to the banquet and stick a price on it, just remember that boaters are notoriously cheap..
