Registration is closed

This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification (except for level 1 trips when the paddler is not using a spray skirt....if the paddler is wearing a spray skirt on a level 1 paddle, the Wet Exit Certification is REQUIRED).  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.  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.

Please join Mel for a relaxed trip from Hebb Park past the Canby Ferry, up to the confluence of the Molalla River where we will explore a mile or two up river, depending on water levels. The quietness of the Molalla and the surrounding scenery is impressive at this time of year. This is an out and back with duration depending on water levels. We will practice some directional boat control development along the way.
