EAST FORK WHITE RIVER Saturday, July 11
Please join us for the eleventh annual East Fork trip on Saturday , July 11 from Seymour to Brownstown. Our put in will be at 10 am at the Bell's Ford DNR access site located at the SR 258 bridge about two miles west of Seymour. We will paddle 16.3 miles to the DNR access site at the US 50 bridge 2 miles west of Brownstown. Near the halfway point we will pass under the historic 144 year old Shieldstown covered bridge one of Indiana's longest at 331 feet in length. Expect a gentle mid-summer current of 2 m.p.h. with dozens of huge sandbars and a river width of 150-200 feet consistently along its journey. Our put in is on the Delorme atlas on page 51 E-10. Our total round trip shuttle distance is about 27 miles. Expect about 5-6 hours on the river with a lunch break. COVID-19 social distancing and face masks on the shuttle will be in effect along with HCKC waivers and newly required PFD wearing on this trip. More info on the COVID-19 is listed in this newsletter. This trip was last run as a club trip about six years ago. Interested parties can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 812-767-1317 by 10 pm on Friday, July 10th. Sincerely, Richard Tekulve, East Fork trip leader since 2010.
