50th Anniversary Flocking to the Hocking
Sunday December 17, 2017 (Quiet Water)

Fifty years ago, Red Davis decided to celebrate his December birthday by paddling a river in Southeastern Ohio. Charlie Pace, of TOSRV fame, agreed.  The Flocking to the Hocking was born. This year we will commemorate this long time tradition with a celebration. 

Join us under a heated tent across the river from the Natural Rock Bridge for coffee and donuts 8:00-9:00; then head to the put-in or stay and hang out with your friends. Then we will have lunch ~1:00 -  Soup and chili, followed by cake!  Or - meet at the put-in at 9:30 and paddle to lunch under the tent.   Did I mention the heated tent, food, plenty of parking AND a raft to ferry across to the Rock Bridge Natural Preserve?  Suggested donation $20.

Directions to the party tent: from Columbus  33 South thru Lancaster  Left into Rockbridge at the gomart/Burger King,  At the stop sign, go right.  At the "T" go left.  Cross the river and railroad tracks, then immediate right onto Dupler Rd.   Go 1 mile (historic canal lock on left, festivities on right).

For those meeting us at the put-in, it is where the Clear Creek flows into the Hocking.  There is a sign pointing to the right for Clear Creek Metro Park.  Do not turn right.  Turn left into the field between the river and the highway.

RSVP Mike Wadkowski at 614-746-4700  or  mwadkowski226@gmail.com  Let me know if you would like to join us and whether you need a boat or equipment.  Equipment rental $10
