NOTE: This is not an official WRRR trip, so you don't have to be a club member and the club is not sponsoring it, but it should be an awesome trip anyway! The last late September Rogue trip was a lot of fun with fantastic weather and great camping. Don't miss out!

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 2018 WRRR Board will be and have some fun with boats and gear.

This year the event will be held at Mark & Karie Burns’ new house. The address is 14528 SE 216th St, Kent, WA 98042

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.

Tilton Trek @ Ike Kinswa State Park
Feb 17 – Feb 19 all-day
Tilton Trek @ Ike Kinswa State Park | Silver Creek | Washington | United States

Brrrr! It’s cold and rainy and just right for a trip on the Tilton! The Tilton is a beautiful class III-IV canyon just west of Mt. Rainier. The first few miles are an easy warmup for the narrow and exciting gorge section. The rapids are challenging and fast – you have to stay on your toes on this run. There is a paddle out on the lake at the end, but it’s not too long and you’ll have plenty of time to talk about the awesome run you just had (and about whatever ridiculous thing happened to the club president this time…).

The group will camp at Ike Kinswa State Park, which is the takeout for the run. There are cabins you can reserve for the night if you’d rather not camp in the cold.

Meet at the takeout Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. or camp out Friday night. If flows are high, or if there are people who just want an easier float, the Upper Tilton is a class II+-III run.

NOTE: Flows are expected to be high and there are reports of wood in critical places. Please check in with the group before going to the put-in.
