From River Haven we will launch the tube riders first to let them get going. Afterward, we will launch the paddlers. If you are receiving this email and need a tube or boat we have you covered. Everyone who stated they have extra, please bring them. Transportation from the take out point will be provided. There are porta-johns but no restrooms. The river trip should take 3-4 hours. Take lots of water and a snack if you think you might need it. Two cooler floats will be riding along to carry refreshments.
