Take It Outdoors - Schuylkill Canal Fund Raiser Paddle

August 5 @ 6:00 pm- 8:30 pm $25/$45

This is not our ordinary Wednesday Paddle!!  Come out and enjoy a unique evening with Take It Outdoors and the volunteers of the Schuylkill Canal Association.  Many of us enjoy the unique paddling experience we find in Phoenixville/Mont Clare, PA.  We are fortunate to have a unique & historic place to paddle with the canal and the only remaining lock on the Schuylkill River.  What many of us don’t see is all the hard work done on a 100% volunteer basis. 

Lock 60 has an amazing crew of volunteers who selflessly donate their time, equipment and money keeping the canal functioning.   It is because of the hard work and commitment of the SCA volunteers who spend thousands of dollars in man hours and equipment clearing trees out of the canal that we are able to navigate it’s waters…and recently two more trees have fallen across the canal.

In an effort to support their cause, and say thank you, we are going to have the 2nd annual fund raising paddle.  All of the money collected will go directly to the Schuylkill Canal Association.  Come out and paddle with some of the volunteers and show them our appreciation for all of their hard work!!

Meet at Lock 60 at 6:00pm

For participating everyone will receive (1) Free Sly Fox Beer (must be 21 years old) and (1) Voucher for a free beer (must be 21 years old) for your next visit to Sly Fox in Phoenixville or Pottstown location.  There may be some other goodies.

Extra incentive – If we raise $1500.00, Doug the owner of Take It Outdoors will paddle the 5 mile loop on a SUP Board in a dress.

Come out and show your appreciation to all the volunteers who work so hard to give us countless paddles and memories.

Last year was a huge success!!  We had 75 people come out and paddle, we raised $1500 plus an additional $500 donated by State Representative Warren Kempf.  On top of that Doug looked damn good in a dress
