If anyone wants to lead a Lower Noli trip as an easier option for beginners that day, let me know and I will add it to this event…

This is our last big “get together” for the year and the APE’s will host grilled hotdogs & hamburgers.  Please feel free to bring any side dishes or deserts to share with the group dinner.  If you are an APE’s member the dinner will be free and non-APE’s members can chow down for $5.00 a plate (Bring your own beverage).


After the dinner we will have a quick meeting to discuss plans Gauley Fest, G.A.F., Green Narrows Race, river trips, & set a date for the APE’s Winter meeting.


Hope to see you on the Noli and at the picnic!
