july 4th white water rafting party

The clubs annual 4th of July Payette extravaganza will start by driving up to Boise on Thursday, the 4th of July. After a short shopping stop at the local Sierra Trading Post, and dinner in town, we will proceed to set up camp in the very nice Hot Springs forest service group campsite, and then head over to Crouch to join in on their raucous 4th of July festivities, a wild party that must be experienced to be believed. Friday we will do two day runs on the Main Payette. Saturday we will run the beautiful high alpine and somewhat more rambunctious Cabarton section of the North Fork. Then we will drive home on Sunday. 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. In an effort to open this experience to some folks who haven't been there before, this year I am going to reserve some spots for Payette newbies. The planning meeting for this trip will be held a week earlier, on Wednesday June 26th @ 700pm at the boat shed, which is at 4340 South Commerce Dr. (300 west) just up the street from the McDonalds. A $50 nonrefundable deposit will be required to get your name on the list for this trip.
