The Endless Mountains Heritage Region (EMHR) and Endless Mountain Outfitters (EMO) are teaming up once again for a benefit paddle that will take participants on a 10-mile river journey from the Bradford County Outboard Motor Club back to EMO in Sugar Run! Whether you are an experienced paddler or just a beginner, the Fall Heritage Benefit Paddle is for you!
Register online and arrive at EMO (7474 PA-187, Sugar Run, PA) by 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1st to sign-in. If you are bringing your own boat, please show up 10 minutes or more early to load it onto the trailer. Paddlers will be shuttled to the Bradford County Outboard Motor Club for a safety brief and a short presentation, then launch downriver. Please pack a lunch or snack as they will stop for lunch, a history presentation and environmental lesson at an island near Homets Ferry. You’ll paddle back to EMO for a barbecue dinner from Old School BBQ around 4 p.m. as well as a tasting with Deep Roots Hard Cider. There will also be music from Kevin Doupe. This event will benefit the Bradford County Historical Society.
Registration is $70 for those bringing their own watercraft and $110 for those renting a single kayak or $125 if renting a tandem kayak/canoe.
This registration fee includes your donation to the Bradford County Historical Society, insurance, the dinner, tasting and educational programming.
Due to alcohol being served, this paddle is for adults 21 and over.
Paddlers should bring appropriate footwear and clothing, lunch/snacks, sunscreen, and a supply of water.
