boating fourth of july on the payette
The clubs annual 4th of July Payette extravaganza will start by driving up to Boise on Thursday, July 3rd, and setting up camp in the very nice Hot Springs forest service group campsite. Friday we will do two day runs on the Payette and after dinner trek over to Crouch to join in on their raucous 4th of July festivities, a party that must be experienced to be believed. Saturday we will move on to the beautiful and invigorating Cabarton section, capping the day with an optional run down the more advanced South Fork. Then we will drive home on Sunday. (Some of the group will be continuing their Idaho whitewater adventure, and drive on over to Hells Canyon on Sunday, for a Monday launch, and three days on the Snake.) This is one of the most fun trips of the year, and a perfect intro to white water, with car camping, an insane country hoedown party, and a mellow but active river. These are great ducky venues, get your ducks in a row in advance, to try an adventurous step beyond the paddle rafts. The planning meeting for this trip will be held one week earlier, on tuesday June 24, @ 700pm at the boat shed, which is at 4340 south Commerce Dr. (300 west) on the north side of Zims, just up from the McDonalds. This trip is now full, though we do have a waiting list.
