Mountainbuzz-like site for Oregan area?

So I have a friend who is just starting to learn to kayak who is moving to Portland, OR in a few weeks. She was wondering how she could meet boaters out there so she could continue to learn. She is especially interested in meeting fellow women boaters. If anyone is aware of any websites or even shops or places she could meet some good people who might be willing to take out a beginner, we would appreciate the beta. Thanks!

Nothing quite as good as the Buzz, but I used these when I lived in Portland:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/pdxgirlpaddler/
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PDXkayaker/

And this was helpful- clinics and free safety courses

While your cruising around the web here are a few more that you can tell your friend to check out, again none are as good as the buzz. Except for PP but thats just cuz I'm representing YO.

pnwwhitewater.org | Whitewater Community - More of an inflatable group but still plenty of kayakers in the mix.

Professorpaddle.com | Whitewater Community - More Washington Kayakers but Portland is so close to WA that half the rivers PDX guys hit are in WA. Worth checking out if your going to mix it up in WA.

Whitewater Rafting Oregon Association Oregon white water rafting - Another great resource site for oregon rivers. Not so much of a boating community but tons of other good stuff that has to do with permits, trips etc...
