EASTER LONG WEEKEND:  THE BARRINGTON:   Whitewater paddlers ( and others too should read on )

Start here and then Simon will lead you NORTH if you have more time (perhaps the whole week - who could believe this could be longer than a Xmas break. )

All plans are water dependent. Watch the weather and Facebook for updates. Sections are from Grade 2 - 3.

Camping at Polys Place - not far from Barrington Bridge - paddling central.
Poleys is a unique camp spot ( paddock) with Country Music Festival for apres^ paddling. http://www.poleysplace.com/hoedowns.htm. Hot showers and proper toilets and only $50 for the long weekend. Kids are cheaper. Pay cash at the gate. It can be loud but we can camp far from the music.

For preparation, please reply if you are coming and please add your paddling ability Grade 1, 2, 3, or 4 & above. Also if you are an RCC member or not.
Barrington only - Rick 95234495 or Lynn 0406428331
And North - Simon 0423 779 631 (preferably outside of business hours)
Equipment. Apart from your full camping kit, bring drinking water and toot paper.
Boats: I expect you to be responsible for your own whitewater kayak and gear. ( but club hire could be arranged if you get in early) but please plan to transport it yourself.
