Summer Final Flow Weekend – the last hurrah!

Rec-Rel-optReminder that September 19 and 20 from 10am to 4pm, Wausau Whitewater will be flowing for the last time in 2009. For those of us in the organizing capacity, this always brings a certain sadness because there are friends that we will not see for over six months. If you have never been to Wausau, this is a great opportunity to reunite with the paddling community at our Wausau Whitewater Summer Final Flow.

We offer:

  1. Class II / III whitewater course with slalom and freestyle features throughout the course, a world class course with the friendliness of a beginner’s river because of all of the opportunities to access at your ability level.
  2. Popular site drawing a local paddling presence (we call local a five state region – Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, and Michigan)
  3. Opportunities to learn: each recreational release has spots for 6 students in the 8:45am to12 noon class and spots for 6 students in the 12:45pm to 4pm. There are still opening for this weekend right now but typically they fill up quickly. http://www.wausauwhitewater.org/Training.htm#RecreationalRelease
  4. “Mentor program” pairing experienced boaters with those seeking some guidance with any aspect of their boating (but particularly basic skills such as eddy turns, surfing, surviving holes and drops). If you would like some help with a skill or are willing to give up an hour or two or help someone else you may not know, please let Julie (me) know when you register this weekend.
  5. Friendly vendor with typical summertime fare in Wisconsin, hamburgers, brats, hot dogs, fries, and drinks.
  6. Free camping on the river in our onsite primitive campsite with potta-potties and trash containers or stay with one of our great lodging partners by using codeword “kayak” when making your reservation. http://www.wausauwhitewater.org/Lodging.html
  7. Close to downtown for shopping in the mall, great restaurants, art centers, and more in a beautiful city with plenty of green space.

If you have never come or been here often, Welcome to Wausau!
