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: Please join us at one of our favorite paddling venues. We will launch at Promontory Park Marina, paddle up river to where there is some current and play there for a while before we head back to the "lagoon" for some more exploration, perhaps stop for snacks, etc. The water level is expected to be high with opportunities to view several water falls along the way. We will return to the Marina for take-out
