The 28th Annual ASRO will be taking place as scheduled on February 21 – 22, 2009 on the Au Sable River. The rendezvous Saturday morning the 21st is at the Big Boy Restaurant in Grayling at 8:30 a.m. From there we will unload at Ray’s on the river and run shuttle down to Parmalee and check for ice at the landing. We should be launching on the river by 11:30 a.m.
We will be camping overnight so everyone going needs to be an experienced winter camper as well as an experienced paddler. We have had night time lows down to -20 degrees but the average is typically around +10 degrees but that is still cold without the proper equipment.
All paddlers are responsible for their own actions, equipment, emergency gear, and clothing as this is a self-guided and self-equipped trip.
