Its that time again, for everyone’s favorite trip down the Youghiogheny River! This IS a Family Friendly event. This event includes both a canoe/kayak trip and a shrimp boil lunch. Members can do either or both. If you are attending the canoe/kayak event, we will meet at: Youghiogheny Outfitters, 226 Collinsburg Road., West Newton, PA. 15089 9:00am-9:30am. From there we will be transported to a separate location where we will launch into the river. ALL PARTICIPATING BOATING MEMBERS must be at Outfitters by 9:30am. If you come after, you will miss the transport and be unable to attend. The caravan of canoes and kayaks will float down the river until we get to Cedar Creek Park in Rostraver, PA at which time the shrimp boil will take place. This will occur at approximately 12:00pm. For those only attending the shrimp boil, there will hopefully be signs indicating the location within the park. The caravan will then continue on floating down the river until you end at your starting location: Outfitters.

This is a leisurely trip which goes with the current of the stream so no serious physical exertion is needed. This is the perfect event for both young and old.

The cost of the shrimp boil only is $12.

For a 2 person canoe or tandem kayak, the rental fee is $42.

For a single kayak the rental fee is $30.

The transport fee to bring your own canoe or kayak is $12.

The trip plus lunch all told should last approximately 4-6 hours depending on your speed.

Payments for the trip should be made as far in advance as possible and all payments should be given to Chuck Bobich:

This event replaces the August monthly meeting of CFI held at the Carnegie Science Center.
