Hello Mice (and those who want to paddle with us)

Spring is almost here, time to pull yourself out of the weeds and get into the water!

Here is the first look at the Mice schedule:

March 29-30
Cancelled. Maybe we will try again later in the season.

Saturday, April 5, 2008
Gosnold’s Hope Park, Hampton
This is an early season paddle in conjunction with a camping event. Put in will be at the boat ramp at the park. We will paddle along the Back River, either towards Air Power Park, or along Langley Air Force Base towards the York River. Bring lunch, and dress for the weather!

Take Mercury Boulevard east to King Street North. Turn right on onto Little Back River Road. Turn in park entrance across from Willow Oaks Blvd. Boat ramp is on the on right.

A few mice will be camping at the park all weekend. Trailers only!

May 3
The City of Chesapeake puts this paddle on. It is a 7.5 mile one way trip up the Dismal Swamp canal. Check out the website at
There is a fee to participate, and the event will sell out, so sign up early. Note also that Mogul is planning a Kentucky Derby Party later the same day.

May 9-11
Details to follow.

September 12-14
KIPTOPEKE (tentative)

Many more paddles to come. We try to do two weekend paddles and an evening paddle a month from May-September, and will do a couple of camping trips. We will do some long paddles, and some shorter, "social" paddles. We will hit some old favorites, plus a coupe of new put-ins and waterways.

Hope you can join us!
