Come join us for a morning trip on the Boardman,  only 20 minutes from downtown TC.  You will marvel at the remote feeling you get without going very far from home.  With the new roundabout at the corner of Beitner and River Road, we shouldn't have any problems making the left turn to run the shuttle.
There will likely be several fun riffles along the way.  The current is quick, but the river is wide enough to be easily negotiated by adventurous beginners.  It's a good place to practice maneuvering in current and practicing those back ferries! 
Paddling time should be about 3 hours.  If there is interest, we might go out to eat afterwards.   

Bring your usual paddling gear, ropes for the bow and stern, a water bottle and a snack. 

Boardman (Brown Bridge Landing)

Take Garfield Road south of Traverse City to River Road.  Turn left (east) and drive about 1/4 mile.  You will cross Arbutus Hill Road, and then the river itself.  Turn left into the TC Light and Power parking lot.  If you run out of blacktop, you went about 50 yards too far.  Drive down the path 100 yards to access the river.
