Welcome to the Penobscot Paddle and Chowder Society

The Penobscot Paddle and Chowder Society is a non-profit organization of outdoor-loving people, with membership primarily from Maine. The Society was formed in 1969 by Bangor-area canoeing pioneers with a sense of humor and a fondness for chowder suppers. Over the years the club has grown, the boats have changed, and the activities available to members have expanded, but the friendly and supportive nature of the PPCS remains the same.

Whether your idea of great paddling is Class V whitewater or tripping on wilderness lakes, you'll find members of the Penobscot Paddle and Chowder Society who share your passion!

Anyone got long bars?Hey all, I was wondering if anyone in the greater Bangor/Orono/Old Town metropolitan area was planning on going on the Labor Day weekend trip and had room on their racks for a 14'6" mad river courier plus a spare seat? -Ian
