Black Friday Paddle (7th Annual)- Brandywine River #OptOutside
November 24, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC-5
Are you tired of the over commercialism of the holiday season? If so join us this Black Friday and paddle the Brandywine Creek and escape the madness. This section of river is one of my favorite local paddles. While people are fighting over parking spots at the mall we will be paddling down a scenic, secluded, windy and quite little river. For the post paddle we will head into the Victory Brewery so we can enjoy some good food and warm up with some quality craft beer.
We will meet at 10:00am in the parking lot of the Victory Brewery where we will consolidate people and cars into my van and trailer and then head down to the river. We will paddle about 10 miles so bring lunch and water. We will have a drive so no need to wait in the cold while people shuttle cars back and forth. After the paddle we will head back to Victory and enjoy some laughs, food and beer.

IMPORTANT!! – “NO SHOWS” are common place for Meet Ups but it makes planning very difficult. The “No Shows” usually stem from the people that have never been on a TIOA trip. Once you come out everyone usually realizes the sense of community and the hard work that goes into planning these trips. We understand that emergencies, family issues, etc. come up but PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE don’t sign up unless this trip is going to be a priority plan. It’s all about communication and respect. Thank you!!
