Paddling Advice and/or Company for Paddlefest?

Hey buzzards, I'm a relatively new paddler from ABQ, fleeing the NM drought to come play on the Ark and check out Paddlefest. I'm bringing an Aire Puma, my wife and two friends, I want to keep the rafting safe and have a good time. I'm confident on class III, my buddy and I are likely ready for class IV, we'll all have helmets and splash gear, I have a SWR cert, my friends don't but they all have some experience.

My current plan is to meet in Salida Saturday afternoon, put in there and run to Rincon for a short easy trip to see what the Ark is like and get used to paddling together. Then go to BV for libations and talk to people about how crazy what sections are what flows, and maybe meet some people to paddle with.

At that point I think I'll have a better idea what to do and we'll have all day Sun and Mon.

Does my plan sound good to you?

Any recommendations/advice?

Thanks and have a great weekend!!!
