Registration is closed

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.  If the measured water temperature is different enough from that listed below to warrant a change in required immersion protection, the Organizer will contact all participants and the Trips Board member with the update at least a day before the trip.Narrative: Come paddle the narrows. This gem never disappoints. We'll leave from Willamette Park in West Linn and head upstream to find a nice place for lunch. We'll check the current for some possible play and look for the birds that love the place as much as we do.
