the 4th of july white water payette party

The club's annual 4th of July Payette extravaganza will start by driving up to Boise on Saturday, the 2nd of July. We will proceed directly to set up camp in the very nice Hot Springs forest service group campsite and then Sunday, do 2 runs down the friendly whitewater of the Main Payette daily section. Monday we will run the beautiful high alpine and somewhat more rambunctious Cabarton section of the North Fork and after dinner, we will head over to Crouch to join in on their raucous 4th of July festivities, a wild street party that must be experienced to be believed. We will drive home on Tuesday. 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 four days earlier at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, June 28, at the boat shed, which is at 4340 South Commerce Dr. (300 west) just up the street from the McDonalds. A $100 nonrefundable deposit will be required to get your name on the list for this trip.
