Tieton Rally @ Tieton River
Sep 16 – Sep 17 all-day

Camp with WRRR members, friends, and family on the sunny Tieton River! For the month of September, there are irrigation releases from Rimrock Lake, and boaters from all over flock to the Tieton to take advantage of it. Flows usually peak in the middle of the month, and we’ll be right there!

The Tieton is a Class 3+ run with continuous gradient, lots of rapids, few eddies, and a runnable dam. There will be trips leaving from the WRRR camping spot river right Friday through Sunday. For approximate launch times check the July Waterlog, WRRR Facebook page, or simply just show up!

Club members and friends camp for free on the Forest Service land in the same spot WRRR has been invading for years in the dustbowl. WRRR will provide clean, portable toilets, but there are no other amenities except what you bring (and some trees, rocks, river, etc.). Pack out what you bring and help WRRR and the other outfitters keep this area clean and open.

There will be a breakfast potluck on Sunday the 13th from 8:00-9:00 a.m. We will have the potluck by the group fire at the upper WRRR camp.

Keep in mind that some people may be cat people. 😉 So please keep dogs on a leash in the main camp area when unattended, and especially at dinner time.

And most importantly, be safe on the water! Know your skill level, bring proper gear, and be mindful of other boats on the water. The fast current of the Tieton and narrow banks will keep you on your toes from start to finish!

Gear Swap/Boat Repair – Annual Membership Meeting @ Randy's Hanger #503
Oct 14 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

This event is subject to change of location and date.

We’re continuing the tradition of a Gear Swap and Repair Clinic for the October General Membership meeting. Come join us to find out who the candidates for the 2016 WRRR Board will be and have some fun with boats and gear.

Randy Rogers has generously offered his hanger to give our members space to repair and swap their gear. We are inviting you to bring your gear, and whatever supplies you will need….glue,  D-rings, patches and valves, and we will attempt to fix it on the spot.  We recommend you bring your repair kits. The club will supply some glue, but if you need a lot, bring your own. We encourage you to bring along any gear you no longer use to sell or trade to other club members. This can be a great opportunity to clear out your storage space and pick up some needed items.  Even if it’s not in prime shape, it may be perfect for someone starting out.

We will be meeting at the Auburn Airport where Randy Rogers has a hangar that will be available to us for shelter.  The address is 2527 “E” St. N.E., hangar # 503.  There is a locked gate so if you have a trailer, you can contact Randy on his cell phone and he can open the gate to let you drive in. 206-669-1877

We will start at 11:00 am so we will have plenty of time for the glue to dry.  WRRR will be providing pizza and you should provide you own beverages.

Sauktoberfest @ Sauk River
Oct 21 @ 10:00 am

Rafting, Growlers, BBQ!!! We will meet at the river and BBQ at the takeout weather permitting. Camping is available at or trip leader’s house near Arlington 30-40 minutes from the Sauk river. We can move the BBQ there depending on group dynamic.

The Sauk is an excellent intermediate whitewater run. Depending on the flows it can be friendly or “mean and green”. Don’t hesitate to contact our trip leader if you’re not sure your up to it — he knows it well and can help you make the decision, and may even have room for you in his raft. We will eddy out more if new folks are on the run that day.

KEY TIMES: Meet at Darrington IGA at 10 a.m. We will decide then which takeout we’re taking and will drop off cars on the way upstream to Whitechuck.

Put-in launch time will be 11:15 a.m.

Takeout, run, shuttle, light BBQ!!! Bring your own food/drink.

Trip leader: pinkyfilippini@yahoo.com
