What an awesome 1st Saturday Paddle in March!

Tuesday, March 08, 2022 12:38 PM | James Parnell (Administrator)

So this is our 3rd paddle in the series of 1st Saturday Paddle trips and they are becoming very popular. We had 16 paddlers in our group this past Saturday with the best weather you could ask for in March! The water level was about 300cfs with sunny skies and low 70s.  Skill levels across the board from beginner to pro boater and everything in between. 

We started out at Barnett Bridge with a nice warm up and more play than that section typically see's, I'm sure. Once at Jett we pulled in to take a break and grab some snacks and stretch our legs then headed on down. As the rapids picked up so did the playing. There were spins, squirts, kart wheels, attainments, hairy fairies, eddy catching, practice rolls, and more. Everyone stayed in there boat and had a blast! I believe we were out there about 5 hrs. We even had another large group to pass us up. 

If you want to join us for the next 1st Saturday Paddle trip you will need to register for Rendezvous. If the full registration doesn't sound right for you there is a Saturday only option that also gets all the Rendezvous swag, access to Camp Nakanawa showers and join us Saturday evening for the big Rendezvous auction. If you don't know Rendezvous is TSRA's largest fund raising event and plays host to hundreds of paddlers from all over. To get all the swag register before March 16th.

    Quite possibly my best weekend on the plateau. Barnett to Lilly with an awesome crowd on Saturday and then OBJ to Nemo Sunday. Sunday was a much smaller group but equally awesome.
