Registration is closed

 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, if you intend to wear a spray skirt.  Your acceptance is conditional on approval by the Organizer, who may contact you with questions about your skills and equipment.

Join Bob Freshman and me for a relaxed paddle up the Willamette River and thru the Narrows. We'll leave Willamette Park in West Linn (not to be confused with park of same name in Portland) and paddle upriver maybe as far as a deserted and unfinished mansion that sits overlooking the bend of the river known as "Fish Eddy." Along the way we'll experience the natural beauty of the islands, the mild currents that move around the islands this time of year and otherwise just have some some fun on a Tuesday on the water.
