Kayak Trip! August 9, 2014 – Marietta Ohio

Join the ski club for a flat water kayak trip on Saturday, August 9, at 11 am in Marietta, Ohio!

The kayak trip is open to the first 15 people to sign up (and pay).  It will begin at the Marietta Boat ramp and end at the Williamstown boat ramp approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours later. It is $25 for non-members and $20 for members.  The Rivers Trails and Ales festival will be going on at that time which will make it a bit more festive of an occasion.  People may want to bring their bikes as well to ride around afterwards.  There are many wooded trails throughout the city as well as the bike/walking/running path that goes along the river.  We will meet at the Marietta Adventure Company and that is where we will return after the trip.  Any questions or to reserve a spot call or text Mark 740-525-5036.
