ADK Camp and Paddle Trip Long Lake NY
 September 10th through the 17th.

Cordinator: Chuck Horbert chorbert13@gmail.com

FYI, this year's Adirondacks trip will be to Lake Eaton Campground in Long Lake Village, NY.  NY State Parks opens the reservation window is now open through Reserve America.

Lake Eaton Campground is fairly small...most RICKA attendees camp  somewhere in sites 10-54 (waterfront sites from 31-54). Personally I think the beaches on the other side are nicer (sites 60-100). The campground is pretty spread out, but not too bad a walk unless walking entirely from one end to the other, so I'm not going to obsess over what side you want to camp on. We'll still find each other!

If you are planning on joining our group, kindly contact me at chorbert13@gmail.com so I can add you to the list for future e-mails. Future e-mails will be sent only to those who sign up with me.

Once you have reserved a campsite please let me know what site number you'll be on, and when your expected arrival and departure dates will be. If you did not attend last year, please also send me your contact info (e-mail, cell number). Like last year, I will make a spreadsheet available so everyone in the group will have other's contact info and site location.  Chuck

The trip coordinators are unpaid volunteers who are not  professionals.  They are not and cannot be responsible for determining the adequacy of your skill level, your personal safety, well-being, or happiness.
 Trips are group events.  You and you alone, are responsible for yourself.    

Directions are provided as a courtesy to paddlers, please refer to a map before leaving for a trip.

In leui of a meeting in the summer month,s we offer an event that is suitable for everyone.  We have a permit for sites 45 and 46 if you want to get there early to paddle (the permit is in Cheryl Thompson's name if you are asked)



Our first on-water meeting/paddle of the season is the signal that summer is here! For those new to the club, a group paddle or event replaces the more structured meetings of fall through spring, and takes place on the third Monday evening of the month.
