Summer paddling group--Mom's welcome!

I am putting together a women's paddling group for this summer...moms are welcome and encouraged to reply. The idea with the group is to create a network of local Front Range women who want to paddle but are faced with time and childcare constraints. When paddling times are made, daycare will also be provided so that women can get out on the water. I am a class III paddler and am hoping to get experienced women and those new to the sport. Some of the local rivers for day trips will include: Poudre, Deckers (South Platt), Blue (August-Fall), Colorado (pumphouse and other class II-III sections)...Please let me know if there is any interest out there...

I am interested

Hey There,

I do not live in the front range but close, and I am interested in becoming a member of a womans group. I am a class III boater who is about to row my first big water next week the Yampa Dinosaur section. I have paddled the pumphouse section several times in a varity of rafts (duckie, 14' self bailer, 14' cat) and would like to experience some new whitewater. I have only done the Poudre once which was more swimming then paddling, its a long story. Us woman who like to do cool stuff are few and far between. Just keep me posted.

Thanks, Jules

I'm in ladies, although I will probably only be able to join on the Poudre Days. Would love to have a set day every week up here (on the poudre) Any evening works for me.

I'm just curious. Can I email the organizer directly about the daycare during paddling. I would like to hear your ideas and make a similar group for kayaking dads. Thanks for the reply

just in time!

Riverbug, I would love to join your group! I am a class III-IV paddler, have been paddling for 6 yrs (omitting last year, when I was pregnant) and am a new mom of a 7 month old. Since I was out of the loop last year I am trying to figure out who I can paddle with. My husband (Nick Wigston) is super supportive of my getting out to paddle, but it's not so much a solo sport and it's hard to coordinate and find poeple to boat with. Most of the guys (I stress, GUYS) I have boated with over the years all progress to running harder stuff, and I honestly am wanting to stick with III-IV.

Anyway, yes, let's do this!

outdoor DIVAS will definatly support and promote a group like this. We have had clubs like this in the past and they are a blast. Keep us posted and we'd love to help in anyway.
