    This trip is limited to OOPS members who are WEC.  To register, you'll need to log into your member account on the OOPS website.  Reminder:  Registration for any trip is always conditional upon final approval by the Trip Organizer. The TO may contact you to assess whether your skills & equipment are appropriate for the trip.

    Narrative: Join Shawn Altman and me for a wild day of kayaking in current at the Willamette Narrows. The gauge should be around 57', a healthy flow for fun to be had. We'll start off by heading south a whopping 200 ft to practice some ferrying around the mouth of the Tualatin River. Next, we'll continue south paddling into The Narrows, a fantastic place to practice maneuverability and boat control in current. After reaching the southern end of The Narrows, we'll eat a fantastic lunch (bring your own lunch) before playing on the return journey back to Willamette Park. Also, the weather should be just dandy on Sunday which is great for paddling. We do plan on doing some instruction in current, so please be comfortable in mild current if you plan on signing up. We are also going to keep the group size smaller than normal, so we aren't too crowded. This should be an awesome trip with two great leaders, so come have some fun with us.

    • Lucky Lab, 7576 SW Capital Hwy, Portland, OR 97219

    In July of 2017, a gregarious group of 17 adventurous OOPSters assembled at Telegraph Cove, BC, next to Johnstone Strait on the northeast side of Vancouver Island. At the marina we secured kayaks, gear, and food on two water taxis and ventured to Paddler’s Inn, about two hours distant, on the edge of the Broughton Archipelago, BC’s largest Marine Park. For the next week we explored the islands. Black bear, orcas, whales, seals, innumerable Bald Eagles, mink, deer, and bossy sea lions all made appearances. Dolphins cavorted around the kayaks within sight of our lodging. The undersea life was also amazing and the islands themselves are stunningly beautiful. As you may expect, many terrific photos were taken and we’ve combined the very best of these into a slide show set to music for your entertainment.

    We hope you can attend the general meeting and enjoy a photographic portrait of this kayakers’ paradise. Afterward, expedition members will be on hand to talk about how to organize such a trip, the natural and human history of the area, paddling conditions, or any other questions you may have.

    This trip is limited to OOPS members who are WEC.   As with all trips & classes at Events, registration will take place at the HQ campsite.

    Narrative: PLAY IN THE PASS with Vern 

    Narrative: Come play in the water for awhile. Meet at Cornet Bay at 1400 & launch at 1430.   Where to? Who knows. We will be paddling against a significant current — a building flood. We will attempt to paddle out around Strawberry Island and then down to Canoe Pass, where, if we make it, we will play for a little while before eddy hopping down to "lunch bay", swinging around the W end of Pass Island and riding the flood through Deception Pass (stopping to play for a bit) back to Cornet Bay. 

    And if we don’t make Canoe Pass: No problem. We will mess about Strawberry Island for awhile and then go back to Cornet Bay. This is a quick paddle — an opportunity to get our drysuits wet — I would like to be back on the beach loading boats onto cars Not Later Than 1630.

    Helmets and towlines required. Floatation bags recommended.

    This paddle is for folks who are comfortable in dynamic water and will require a strong forward stroke as well as the skills needed to deal with crossing eddy lines.

    Narrative: At Deception Pass State Park looking forward to paddling tomorrow, but nothin' to do tonight? or having trouble pitching your tarp? Come spend an hour playing with lines and knots and bends and hitches. This will be a pale imitation of Mike C.'s clinic. If you've taken Mike's class in the past, come practice stuff you already kinda learned. If you haven't taken Mike's class, perhaps this will wet your appetite.

    • 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
    • Deception Pass State Park, Bowman Bay CG

    Registration for this class is only open to OOPS members who have already been in contact with Connie Lively, our Deception Pass Event Manager, and approved to register.  Be sure your are signed into your OOPS member account to register. 

    Deception Pass is famous throughout the Northwest for its 8-knot currents, drastic eddy lines, incredible whirlpools, and large upwellings. Many kayakers look at this pass with fear, but with the right coaching and leadership it becomes a playground and an incredible learning environment. We will spend one day using the ebb to work on applying a full range of strokes efficiently to moving water, including: ferry gliding, sneaking up current lines, entering current backwards, rescues, rolling, and dealing with dynamic water. This class offers tremendous opportunities for the intermediate paddler and will take advantage of everything Deception Pass has to offer.  

    Strong rescue and boat handling skills are required.  Learn more about Body Boat Blade at their website:  https://www.bodyboatblade.com/

    Class times are approximate.  You will receive information about exact times and meeting place at the event.

    If the class is sold out, please use the waitlist option to be placed in the queue for possible registration.  Connie will contact you if there is an opening.  You do not need to pay the registration fee to join the waitlist; you will only pay it if you complete the registration process once you're notified that there is an opening and you qualify.

    Additional information: Drysuits will be required. Please be prepared.

    Cancellation Policy: As this is a private company's class, full refunds will be provided ONLY IF we are able to find a replacement.  Any refunds will be done after the event.  Cancellations are done through Connie Lively,  the Deception Pass Event Manager only.  Thank you.

    • 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
    • Bowman Bay, DP Sate Park, WA
    • 10

    This trip is limited to OOPS members who are WEC.  Registration will take place at the DP Event HQ campsite.

    Reminder:  As always, registration for every trip is conditional upon final approval by the Trip Organizer, who may confer with you to assess whether your skills & equipment are appropriate for the trip.

    Narrative: This will be a somewhat long coastal paddle: 12 - 14 miles depending upon the choice of routes to & around Burrows Is. Depending upon wind, it's also potentially strenuous, although we'll modify at time of launch (and again before we cross Burrows Bay) as we assess actual conditions.

    We'll launch from Bowman Bay, paddle up the coast around Biz point, then 1 nm past Edith Point (for a total of 4 nm). From there, we'll cross Burrows Bay (approx 1.25 nm) to a small channel separating (little) Young Is from Burrows Is. There is a beach for a brief rest break on Burrows just after we enter that small channel. We'll proceed northeast and then west around Burrows Is to Light Station State Park, a beautiful spot for a lunch break overlooking Rosario Straight. There are excellent views due west across the Straight to the near San Juan Islands.

    We'll paddle south from the Lighthouse and complete our circumnavigation of Burrows by paddling east in the channel separating Burrows from Alan Island.  Then, depending on conditions, we'll select an optimal heading for our return crossing of Burrows Bay and proceed down the coast to our take out at Bowman Bay.

    If you have a tow belt, please wear it.

    Paddling Environment:  
    Overall rating: Level 3
    Rating Comments: Other than the effect of wind on sea state & swell size - which will be consistently monitored as we proceed - endurance will be the most significant consideration for this paddle. The overall distance is not extraordinary (although 12 -14 nm is certainly a good day's paddle), but

    This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification.  To successfully register, you will need to sign into your OOPS member account, and your account will need to be a member of the "Wet Exit Certified" group.  Your acceptance is conditional on approval by the Organizer, who may contact you with questions about your skills and equipment.

    Narrative: Please join Joe Howell, Dave Smith and myself for a paddle in the Columbia River Gorge. We will be launching from Stevenson at the Cascade boat ramp and make our way upriver along the Washington side towards Wind River. It is one of the most picturesque parts of the Columbia Gorge if you have not paddled here before. We will make the decision to cross over to the Oregon side if conditions are favorable and have lunch at Government Cove, and then re-cross the Columbia to Stevenson. If conditions are not favorable for the initial crossing, we will continue up the Washington side, possibly to Wind River. We can paddle close along the shoreline, if conditions are windy, to find smoother water. There are several lovely small rock islands and coves with beaches for a break. At times, the river here can be still and silent, glassy as a lake, other times the wind can create an entirely different environment. We will be keeping the forecast in mind and if high winds are forecast, we will change our venue to an alternate location. Walking Man Brewing in Stevenson is an excellent option for post paddle food and beverages.

    Register now for a four- or five-day 2018 Central Oregon Kayaking extravaganza. Plan to arrive on Monday, June 18, 2018 and we’ll paddle Tuesday through Friday.   PLEASE USE THE WAITLIST IF REGISTRATION IS FULL.  This will be a collection of Level 1 trips. There will likely be only one trip per day.  You’ll sign up for the actual OOPS paddle trips later, but by registering here, you’ll know if you should go ahead and reserve your own campsite or lodging.  Please only register here once you know that there is a high likelihood that you will attend.   State campgrounds open registrations nine months in advance, so you can reserve a camp site beginning Sept. 18, 2017.   This extravaganza has been planned for mid-week because the lakes we visit should have fewer visitors then.  The Central Oregon waterways are a treat—clear water, fresh air, spectacular views.  It’s easy to see why people fall in love with Central Oregon. I expect that there will be about six Trip Organizers for these trips.  Registration will be limited to 28 total people, including Trip Organizers (four pods of seven paddlers).  PLEASE USE THE WAITLIST IF REGISTRATION IS FULL.

    I will be camping at La Pine State Park, and I hope you’ll reserve your own site there, too. The park is along the Deschutes River and features access to miles of relatively flat hiking and biking trails.  The campground is near Sunriver and all its amenities, as well as less than an hour from Sparks and Hosmer Lakes and less than 30 minutes from the other two waterways we’ll likely paddle.  PLEASE USE THE FORUM OR YOUR OWN INFORMAL NETWORKS TO FIND PEOPLE TO SHARE A CAMPSITE WITH.  I would suggest making your reservations early.  What do you have to risk but an $8 reservation fee?    I plan to reserve a site in the North Loop (Sites 100-148).  All the North Loop sites are large and have electrical hookups.   The other two loops have full-hookups, so they will attract more RVs.  Cabins are available in the South Loop.  Looking for something even more plush?  Rent a house in Sunriver.
