Paddler Parking Lot

This is what it's all about. Just like the real parking lot, this is the place to shoot the breeze and talk trash. Just keep it clean!

Careful, it could be precious to someone:

A tip to anyone who doesn't have Yeti-sized hands..... to lock the gate: when the lock is in position, push the gate away from the housing, placing tension on lock, then push to close...... this saves you from trying to use two hands ( which if you don't have 10 inch fingers, is a tough task to perform )...... yes, I would like to lay claim to that brilliance but Bigtime taught me that..... and he said someone showed him..... which proves that we are always trying to help each other :cheers:

I have the lock hold down device cut and bent. I just have to drill hole, de-burr and paint. Sorry it's taking so long.
Yes, I still have a little ass left!!

Just a heads up. New keys will go on sale in March. On sunday March 30, 2014 we are shooting to have a Parking Lot sponsored BBQ. More to come on this later.
Next year's key will run $50, same as this year. On March 30, 2014 we will be selling the keys for a discounted price. If you are a current member of American Whitewater you will be able to purchase your key for $25. You must have your AW member card with you when paying for your key. If you are not a member of AW and want to be, go to www.americanwhitewater.org and sign up (membership to AW is $35, if you are a member of Palmetto Paddlers or Foothills Paddling Club membership is $25) Again, this is a one day only offer (March 30, 2014). Be sure to sign up with ample time to receive your membership card.

for you non FB users:

Keys will go on sale sun at 1pm. eating around 3-4pm. if you are a AW member remember to bring your card so that you can get a discounted key.

How many of you are planning to come out on Sunday? We plan to have the food (burgers) ready to eat at 3pm. Burgers, toppings and condiments will be provided. If you would like to bring a side dish to share, bring it on. If the weather does not cooperate, we will still be selling keys but will reschedule the BBQ for another time. Let it be known if you are coming to eat!

I'm new to the forum. Just registered today as I was trying to locate a paddling spot close to Augusta, GA (closer than the Nantahala). I'd like to take the kids up this weekend for some paddling. Can I met someone at the lot and purchase a key? Thanks in advance-
