1st Lower Columbia Kayak Roundup

I just booked my flights for attending the 1st Lower Columbia Kayak Roundup from August 24-26. This new symposium on the Pacific Northwest coast is organized by Ginni Callahan of Columbia River Kayaking. The week before, there is a whole range of BCU courses scheduled. The whole Lower Columbia River and the Pacific coast of Oregon and Washington have excellent paddling locations, beautiful coastal scenery and history. If you have met and paddled with Ginni, you will probably already have this event marked in your calendar. If not, this is a not-to-miss opportunity.
Rounding-up all those ace-high sea kayakers; GO WEST! JUMP INTO YOUR kayaks AND paddle... IT'S ROUND-UP TIME IN THE WILD AND swelly WEST! Hey dude, leave the Old States! Just follow the signs for 'Lewis and Clark' and stop at the Slow Boat Farm in your best bib and tucker. Maybe you can smell the bear sign and bend an elbow. But don't get half seas over and don't beat the Dutch! Pony up and sign-up! Until then I am at sea!
