Looking for summer paddling buddies around Aspen

Hey all,
East coast paddler here, comfortable in class III+, would be ok with class IV with the right group.
I'll be spending this summer (Late June-Late August) in Aspen working at the music festival there. Last time I was in the Rockies, I brought gear, but hardly did any paddling for lack of people to go with . I've looked around online, and haven't come across any paddling clubs in the area--does anyone know of a club I may have missed, or an informal paddling group in the area that I could get plugged in with? I don't want to miss out again this time!

tl;dr: Are you paddling around Aspen this summer? I'll come with you!

If you don't get any replies from Aspen area boaters then try to hook up with some of the Buena Vista gang. It's just over the mountain and will probably have some of the best water into August. We will usually be doing something over in that area during that time if you want to take my number 970- 2 one 0 - 3 five six 9 or PM me.

Peter, I found the Glenwood Boaters, but I don't see a roaring fork paddlers group on facebook, is there a different name I should be looking under?

There is also a Buena Vista paddlers group on Facebook you should join. Many of us here travel to the Roaring Fork Valley several times a season too.

My buddy and I are out of Glenwood Springs and we're always looking for people to paddle with. We're on our first class 4's this year so should be looking for similar runs. PM me for a phone number.

Thanks for all the great info everyone.
Quick bump/update: I just got into Aspen, and I'm ready to paddle! (work schedule allowing of course). If anyone wants to show me down some local runs, let me know
