Aquatics – 2017

Every Thursday – Please join PCMSC for a morning of paddle activity at Jordanelle Reservoir.

Please join PCMSC for a morning of paddle activity at Jordanelle Reservoir. We will meet at the Marina at 8:30 AM sharp so that we can be on the water by 9 AM.

Equipment Rental

We will have access to the Jordanelle Marina’s kayaks and SUP’s for 2 hours for $15.00 (less than half price), PFD’s included. To assist the Jordanelle Marina we need to reserve our equipment beforehand. If you have your own equipment, you can just show up at 8:30 am.

You must email Bruce Morra, at brucemorra@gmail.com, no later than 5:00 pm Tuesday with:

·        How many people will be participating, and

·        Number of SUPs, Single or Double Kayaks that you want.

If you don’t do this we can’t promise rentals will be available. They have approximately 40 SUPs, 8 single kayaks and 5 double kayaks. If there are more requests than equipment, they will be given on a first reserved basis. Note that if there is enough equipment available, you can switch any time to another item. Please note, as with most equipment rentals, you are personally responsible if any of the rental equipment is damaged or lost.

Club activity release waivers will be completed at the sports desk. We will also have a sign in and sign out sheet at the sports desk so we are sure everyone makes it back. Please make sure to sign out when you return.

A social/story period will take place after paddling for those interested. Bring food, drinks and whatever else you want.

The information below should answer most questions, but feel free to contact Bruce Morra for additional help.

DIRECTIONS TO JORDANELLE

Take Hwy 40 to exit 8. Turn toward reservoir. Enter park (1/2 mile) then follow signs to the Marina or ask attendant.

GETTING INTO JORDANELLE (OR ANY) STATE PARK IN UTAH. If you participate in the Paddling Program and have your own equipment, PFD and paddle, the only cost involved is the entrance fee to the State Park. You can purchase a “Senior Adventure Pass” if you are over 62 for $35. This is a real bargain because you can use it for a full year at any of the wonderful state parks in Utah. If you are under 62, the cost is $75 for the year – still a bargain considering the price of our annual ski passes! Carload day passes are $5 for 62 and over, and $10 for a driver under 62. (Weekend day passes are $8 and $15.)
