Three Part Harmony on the Sus Hickories Park Owego

6 Aug 2014 - Owego, NY
Basic – Class I Water, 6 Miles
Contact: Ron,,

UPDATE: 10:15 PM  Tues, 5 Aug.. Evening Before

Accuweather shows 51% possibility (Weatherman’s coin flip) for a storm @ Owego tomorrow 4 PM and part sun/cloud thereafter so all phases of the event are a GO. We will be under cover until 5 PM Launch Time, in any case. Any unforseen changes or cancellations will be reflected on the web site trips as they happen.

16 are registered at this time. We could handle a couple of additional but please contact me direct by Phone 607-545-1766 tomorrow for late registration.

I will be at the Pavilion adjacent to the Launch Ramp by 4 PM for sign in and guest registration. Would like to have eaten, registered, unloaded, parked and staged  to launch by 4:45. Please let me know if you are only coming for the concert so that we don’t expect you for the 5:00 Launch.

There are wash rooms available for any one wishing to clean up after the paddle. Evening temperature looks acceptable for the concert but an added Sweater and/or robe might come in handy later in the evening. Don’t forget your chair!

Thanks.. Ron


Kudos to Mike Colwell and Sharon Canfield for their hard work and able leadership of our popular Midweek Mini Sojourn Paddles. With Mike’s segment completed and Sharon donning her Judicial Robes to combat crime in Cortland County, next Wednesday presents a gap in the schedule. This hastily contrived event continues downriver on the Susquehanna from last week’s Hiawatha Island adventure. Hopefully, it will fill the void until our regular Team; Leader Sharon and Chef David, return for the Little York event on July 13th. We call this one:

 Three Part Harmony on the Sus  Wed, Aug 6, 2014

Register or Info Contact:  Ron,  607-545-1766

Weather Related or other changes will be updated real-time on the website

Location: All events will take place within Hickories Park, 359 Hickories Park Rd, Owego, NY 13827. Stay right when you enter the park . Watch for signs. Launch Ramp and pavilion  will be the second turn right and Concert entrance straight on down the river side road.

Schedule: This is a three part event. Please join us for any or all.

4:00 PM Picnic.. Pavillian adjacent to the Launch Ramp. Nothing fancy, a chance to meet, greet and eat a bite prior to the paddle. Bring your own.. full meal, brown bag or (as I do) grab something from one of the Caterers (Wendy, MickyD, KFC, et al) adjacent to the park road.

4:45 PM.. Launch Ramp: Please be unloaded and ready for a 5:00 Launch. This will be an easy OutnBack (no shuttle) Up and around Hiwatha Island and/or down along the Riverwalk, River Row and Owego Village Bridge, depending on conditions at the time. This will be a relaxed paddle suitable for all. Newcomers welcome. We will return to the launch by 6:30, in order to be loaded in time for the concert.

7:00 Concert in the Park.. Riverside at Hickories Park: Alice Dietrich, C&W Singer of some renown, will be featured in this last of the summer Council on the Arts Outdoor Concert. Bring your own chair! If you are joining us just for the concert, look for the paddlers sitting in a group.

Best to Y’all.. Ron
