Spring Bash 2016
Saturday, May 14th
Tolt-MacDonald Park, Carnation
We had another Paddle Trails Spring Bash at Tolt-MacDonald Park in Carnation. About 50 PTCC members showed up for a fresh-cooked breakfast prepared by our "Tasty Chef" board and club chair persons: Scrambled Eggs, Sausages, Hash Browns, muffins, oatmeal, coffee, tea, juice! As breakfast ended, a rain shower started just as the rescue rope throwing (for longest distance and most accurate) competitions started. The water levels were good this year on the Snoqualmie. Although it there were showers, we still broke up into groups that ran 4 different sections of the Snoqualmie:
Middle-Middle (III), South Fork (II+), Club Stretch (II), and Plum Landing (1+). See individual trip reports and photo albums for these trips
