Back for the second year, - what was one of the largest whitewater events in Canada in 2004
Like last year we have loads of events going on: creeking clinics, play boating clinics, beginner lessons, guided trips, canyon hikes, float trips, guided beginner, intermediate and expert paddling runs, a variety of river and creeks all nearby, a spectacular camping location at the foot of incredible glaciers, and a host of volunteers running the event.
We have even more sponsors this year
, and loads of prizes to give away.
This is an all inclusive event, and your entry fee gets you: a t-shirt, shuttles for the weekend, a meal on Saturday night, camping for the weekend, a gear swap for selling your old gear and more !
We have a river impacts presentation on the issues facing our area rivers, raft trips for non-paddlers, guided nature hikes, a throw bag showdown competition, a boatload of rivers to choose from, and local experts to lead people on the river.
Last year this was a central event for our efforts to fight the power project proposed for the river - we defeated that, for now, and we want to keep this event growing, and ensure the river runs free.
All the event proceeds go to our river conservation efforts in BC
- and you can make a difference just by coming out to paddle.
Check out the web site, and mark your calendars !
Don't miss out on this one - one of the best events in one of the finest paddling destinations.
