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: Join us in a fun downriver float from the Newberg pool to Wilsonville. We will offload our boats and equipment at Roger's Landing, drive to Boones Ferry Marina, leave as many cars as possible then get back to Newberg to launch. Please expect light rain, some light wind and significant current, all contributing to a fun, winter paddle. We may stop at Champoeg Park for a potty/snack break. There is a parking fee at Boones Ferry.
