Paddle Monday 5/29
« on: May 24, 2019, 09:03:19 AM »

We plan to paddle on Monday May 29, probably rocks, either Wetherill or Kings Beach (does anyone know if there is a parade in Newport on Monday?). Will check conditions and post location/start time by Sunday am.

We will go out of Ft Wetherill on Monday. 10 am launch, you might want to be there a bit early in case there are crowds. Helmets for rocks, dress for immersion. Expected to be level 3.

Brenda, I just want to add two things:

           1. There will be a Memorial Day parade in Jamestown, going down Narragansett Ave., which starts at 10:00am, but congestion may start before this. Probably safer to get to Ft. Wetherill earlier rather than later. Also a good idea for parking at Wetherill, since it's popular with SCUBA divers.

           2. For anyone who went to Fuel Cafe after the Saturday paddle: did anyone leave a black, hooded, zippered, lightweight sweater? I have it, and will bring it to the Ft. Wetherill paddle.

Thanks Tony - I checked with Jamestown police, closure will happen about 9;45 , if we can all get through town by 9:30 we should be fine.
