Frog Run Saturday 3-12-16

Post by kru1 » Fri Mar 11, 2016 10:36 am

Hoping to hit the Frog tomorrow from Lancaster to Rudy, aka the Ribbit Run, if anyone wants to join.

The plan is to meet at the Rudy Shell gas station at 11. However, that is subject to change based on everyone's schedule.

Post up or pm me if interested.

I'd like to get in on that. I haven't been on the frog since all of the flooding. I'm eager to see the changes....I'll try my best to be there by 11.

Kru,

I don't know how many people you have. Are you ok with fairly new boaters coming?

I want to see the changes as well. I have heard Canyon Rapid is gone and Rapid Transit has improved? That's why I am hitting it tomorrow, to see for myself.

DJ, I'm ok with beginners, but do know that the Frog is a step up from the Mulberry. If you are pitching yard sales (swimming) a lot on the Mulberry then you are not ready for the Frog. I can tell you lines and what to expect, but I cannot paddle the boat for ya.

Kru, Done the Cadron several times and comfortable and not typically swimming anymore. Planning on being there at the Shell in Rudy by 11.

I ran it yesterday at ~6 ft and rapid transit was very good, canyon was also there and a lot of fun. You guys have fun tomorrow I'll probably be paddling elsewhere.

That was the biggest group I have ever seen. Could've held a school or whitewater paddling. I counted 32 boats before part of the group split up to run a different section. On the river I counted 27 at one time and I am sure there were people already downstream.

Rapid Transit has changed for the better. I haven't swamped a boat like that since I paddled out east.

Post and they come out of the woodwork.

I think you've done a great thing, Kristian. There were several there who were encouraged to join in because you made it public. Many don't have close friends who are ready to paddle when they want. I believe some new friendships were made.
