2020 Whitewater Trip Planning Party

WOOHOO! Its our yearly party in which we fill the calendar, paddle, eat, drink, and be merry. 

We will start at 10 am with a class 2/2+ run (so that all can join)
River run options include
- The Mupper (concrete bridge down to normal put-in for the middle middle)
- Concrete bridge down to A-Frame
- South Fork

Then (at ~2) we will convene to Par-Tay

At ~2 PM we rally at Jenefer and Bram's in Preston for the 2020 White Water Trip Planning Party. It should be a great year, with you all leading trips, changing lives. Directions will come in email a few days ahead so SIGN UP!

The club will be providing pizza, desert, and non-alcoholic beverages.  Not necessary, but if you would like, please bring a side dish to share (dessert works too).  BYOB if desired.
