The Great Potomac Tire Rodeo was a Great Success.
Kevin Kearney and Beth Rogers organized the tire cleanup which drew non-paddlers as well as CCA members. We collected 229 tires for recycling.
CCA's Proposed Modification to the Security Zone.
This map show our proposed modification of the Potomac Security Zone at Trump's golf course. GPS coordinates are approximate.

Proposed Changes to Security Zone at Trump Golf Course
These are the changes that CCA and the paddling community are proposing for the security zone at the Trump golf course. We would like the boundary along the old C&O dam mover upriver at least 100 feet, and the boundary along the Maryland shore moved away from the shore to allow passage.
