Come join your CW friends for our last "River Weekend" of 2017!
We'll be camping on the Colorado River and doing runs on different sections of the Colorado, the Lower Blue & possibly others depending on river levels.
Special this year - Mat DuMoulin will teach a free playboating clinic for CW members at the Pumphouse Play Park, Saturday after boating trips! The clinic will start at 3:00 pm. Participants will have to be CW members and have their roll. The clinic will finish before the potluck. To reserve your spot in the clinic, email Dick Alweis.
No need to register - just come have fun!
ORGANIZER: Brooke Smith, if you email please include "CW Colorado Weekend" in the subject line.
CAMPING: We will be camping at the Pumphouse Campground (Co Hwy 106, Kremmling, CO 80459) in group campsites A & B. Camping is free for members.
From Kremmling take Hwy 9 south about 1 mile to Grand County 1 (Trough Rough). Go west on Trough Road for 10 miles, and turn right onto Pumphouse access road. Take the road to the river! NOTE: There is a fee of $5 per day, payable to the BLM on entry for each vehicle.

CRUISES: There is plenty of beginner-level water in the vicinity, including the Pumphouse run which starts at our campsite. More confident boaters are encouraged to volunteer to lead and/or sweep. This is a great chance to get your sweeping or leading feet wet! Other boating opportunities include the Lower Blue and Glenwood Canyon (although the latter is a bit of a drive). We will be meeting at 9:30 am each morning to organize paddle groups.
GROUP POTLUCK DINNER on Saturday Evening: You just KNOW that your fellow boaters will be hungry after a day on the river. Here's our chance to put together a spontaneous, unplanned, yet well-balanced, delicious and nutritious feast that will be remembered during the long dark nights of coming winter. Remember to bring serving utensils, and your own plate and eating accessories. Trash bags will be provided. Anyone with a raft table/roller table, please throw it in your gear if we need it. Don't forget your camp chairs!!!
Come one, come all, and help us round off the summer boating season in style!
