47th Flocking to the Hocking
Sunday December 14, 2014
Let’s all flock to the Hocking! This is the 47th year for this trip! Decorate your boat!
For those interested in carpooling or caravanning we will meet for breakfast at the McDonalds on Gender
Rd./OH674 and Route 33 at 8:30 AM. We’ll leave
McDonalds by 9:00 in order to be at the river by
For those meeting us at the river, the put-in
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. We will run shuttle prior to putting on the river.
Weather could be anything – probably cold and possibly wet. The river water is guaranteed to be cold. Dress appropriately – warm layers and wind/ rain protection (think sledding or skiing). Bring a complete change of clothes in case you fall in.
We will stop at the natural rock bridge for lunch.
Be sure to bring food and water.
We usually get off the river between 4:00 and 5:00.
We are all invited back to Keith Finn’s house in
Westerville for soup and chili afterwards.
All boats are welcome – canoes, kayaks, duckies,
rafts, etc. COP has rentals if needed; let us know in
advance. There should be no cost for this trip unless
you are renting equipment or are carpooling and
want to contribute gas money to your driver.
