One month to the first Annual Rick Roberts Invitation LY Swim Meet
OK. I need to get a pretty good idea of who is coming so I can reserve
I also need to know how many will be paddling the the LY so I can get
enough river permits.
River permits. It costs $2.50 to hardboat the river. The shuttle
costs an additional $3. Total per trip is $5.50. $2.50 + $3 = $5.50.
that's just the way it works out.
If you put on before 8AM or after 3PM, it's free to paddle the river,
but the shuttle still costs.
So here is the skinny: If you want to go, send me some email and I'll
send you my snail mail address so you can send me the permit money.
That way I'll be able to reserve the tickets for you. No money, no
If you want to paddle Sunday and put on after 8, that's $6.
If you don't pay me up front, you might be able to get some at the time,
but don't count on it.
Also, if you know the lines well enough to feel comfortable taking
people down, I'll figure out a way for you not to have to pay for your
permit, and I'll TRY to figure out a way to get your shuttle pass
paid for--no promises on that other than effort.
The campsite is Tall Oaks. Tall Oaks has some quirks. Most of them
are good. http://www.hikercentral.com/campgrounds/110367.html
$6/night as I remember.
good: No quiet hours, but I've rarely heard enough noise to
interfere with sleep.
The most dog friendly place you'll find. (Some don't see
this as a plus!)
No check out time, so you don't have to rush to break camp
before Sunday's paddle. The place is quite convenient to
Beer friendly. This place is so beer friendly that even
the rocks are hoppy.
bad: Well, you have to feed quarters into the showers to get hot
water. Usually takes two. Weird but the cost to camp there
