This will be another Joe-Natalie production, 10-12 miles in duration. A shuttle will be involved so we'll meet early (details to follow to registrants) and paddle over the river and through the woods to Cedar Hill Park on Lake Charlotte.

We will send more details as planning evolves.

Little Missouri River, Murfreesboro, AR

The SWEPCO schedule for "The Narrows" dam shows 3-gate releases starting at noon on Wednesday, continuing until after dark. If we get on the water by 3:00 or 3:30, we will have the full effect of the push with plenty behind us still on the way.

4.5 miles in about 1.5 hours seems about right for planning purposes.

NOTE: This is genuine SWIFTWATER paddling. There are no extraordinary hazards beyond the hydraulics and "pushiness" of the swiftwater, and the usual shore-bound sweepers, but please assess your boat control capabilities before you decide to join in the fun.

Details at a Glance:
Wednesday - meet behind the fence at the Muddy Fork Road take-out at 2:30, on the water by about 3:15 for about 4.5 miles - bring water, snack, helmet, sun protection

Let’s wet paddles together this glorious autumn morning and glide across Lake Texana towards Texana Park and Campground.

Constantin will meet participants at the Mustang Creek Boat Ramp at 9AM Saturday and lead the group to Texana Park and Campground. Please be ready to launch at 9:30AM. This is an approximately 12 miles flat water out and back trip suitable for most paddlers with reasonable stamina.

We will stop for lunch at a waterfront campsite booked by Constantin’s family for the weekend. It can be hot or windy, but the water temperature should be pleasant for most people. For those that wish to participate in a rescue practice session involving capsizing, we can do that in our way paddling back to Mustang Creek Boat Ramp. Constantin will paddle back to Mustang Creek Boat Ramp to escort participants to their vehicles.
