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!

Rogue River @ Almeda Bar Campground
Sep 27 – Oct 2 all-day
This event is subject to people getting permits!

Put in - Sept 27th or 28th, 2017.   5 days (1 layover).

Almeda - Foster Bar.   Class 3/4 (5).   Contact for details and to be added to the permit.

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!
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.

New Year’s Hangover Float @ Cedar River
Jan 1 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Start the New Year boating with WRRR!

We meet at noon at Randy and Nancy’s house (22731 Dorre Don Ct SE, Maple Valley), and we put in at Landsburg. We have between 2 and 25 boaters, depending upon the flow (and maybe the weather, but it’s Washington, you know).

This year, we will be celebrating WRRR members who have passed on. Please bring your happy thoughts of your fellow boaters and enjoy the trip!

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.
