Hey Wildcat Paddlers,


    For many years our Expedition Team has shared a Memorial Holiday Trip

on Our Wildcat Creek.  It will happen again this year, next Saturday the 27th.  As usual, we will Paddle from Adams Mill to Knop Lake, details below.

If the weather turns out to be "Very Nice", this Trip might include our

Wildcat Paddler "Lost Paddle" Memorial Service.


Other Paddling Groups are welcome to share this with your Members.......




Wildcat Creek

Adams Mill to Knop Lake.......13.6-miles

Saturday May 27th

Adams Mill PAS.......10:00 AM



    The Meeting Location will be the Adams Mill PAS on Our Wildcat Creek (Directions Below).  The Meeting Time will be 10:00-AM.  Our Trip will be

13.6-miles to the Knop Lake PAS.  There will be a Short-timer option of

7.0-miles to the Zenie Bridge. 

    The Wildcat @ Owasco Gauging Station has not been providing Flow Levels

in CFS for several weeks.  The Flow today (Sunday) was nearly Perfect.  But,

no Rain is expected all thru this week.  The Flow will be Lower, but there will

still be enough for an enjoyable Trip down from Adams Mill. 


    The Weather Forecast for Saturday is Sunny-70's.  Even if some Riffles

are low & bumpy, Wading & Splashing on a Warm Sunny Day will be more of

a Pleasure than a Problem.
