THIS IS A DUAL EVENT WITH CHARM CITY SOCIAL CLUB, 20PPL ARE ALREADY GOING!
When you RSVP call 1-800-472-3846 and let them know you are with my party and you will pay them. It is $56 in a raft, $66 in a duckie.
If you have rafting experience, or enjoy a little more of a thrill, I strongly recommend upgrading to a single or double duckie. This is an inflatable kayak that puts you level with the rapids, it is the most exciting way to run the river. If that is a little to adventurous, you can also run the river in a raft with, or without, a guide in the boat. This is a guided trip through class II,III, and IV rapids, with lunch provided at the halfway point on the river. This is a great trip for newbies and experienced rafters alike. You do NOT have to be a strong swimmer, or a swimmer at all, to go on this trip. Overnight camping is located, and an amazing time, within Ohiopyle.!
This is a rain, or shine, event. We will be meeting at a Park and Ride on I-70 for those looking to carpool, more information will be provided. This event will fill up, so don't wait till the week before to register.
I recommend people bring the following:
- cash for dinner/driver/photo of trip/ t-shirts
- shorts, t-shirt, tennis shoes
- NO FLIP FLOPS are allowed
- Change of clothes for the ride home
