Registration is closed

This trip is one more Covid aware trial paddle, allowing an increased number of paddlers to test and ensure that we can maintain adequate social distancing to remain safe before, during and after the paddle.

Please do not forget to sign our waiver, using "Jawmendr@gmail.com" as the email address for our organizer during the signing process.

The waiver is here: https://oopskayak.org/safety

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 for an always fun trip to the Willamette Falls. It gives some the opportunity to play in some eddies and others just to watch, both the play and the falls. This is a relatively short distance of little over 3 miles to the falls and then back on the other side of the river. We will pass the confluence of the Clackamas river and perhaps travel up for a ways if there is good flowing water. With the anticipated rain, it might be fun. In any event if the weather holds, it will be a mild day with full Sun.
