Event Information

Description

Welcome to the 2019 edition of the Hoofer Whitewater Memorial Trip!  

It’s three days of paddling, three nights of camping, and a wonderful introduction to whitewater paddling!

This is a beginner whitewater trip where we will focus on the basics.

I may increase the number of participants as support kayakers sign-up.

Requirements

You have completed a Kayak Lake Lesson, passed a swim test & obtained an R1 rating in a kayak.  If you haven't met this requirement yet, we hope to offer lessons in May; email us if you are interested.

Cost

Cost will be around $45 to 65 depending on where we will be camping. Stay tuned. 

You will also need money for dinner on Friday night on the way up and dinner on Monday on the way home.
