boating 4th of july river party

The clubs annual 4th of July Payette extravaganza will start by driving up to Boise on Friday, July 3rd, and setting up camp in the very nice Hot Springs forest service group campsite. Saturday we will do two day runs on the Main 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. Sunday we will move on to the beautiful and invigorating Cabarton section, maybe capping the day with an optional run down the more advanced South Fork. Then we will drive home on Monday. 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, 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. Whatever your craft of choice, sign up early, as this trip fills up quickly. The planning meeting for this trip will be held one week earlier, on Wednesday 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.
