2016 Tieton Rally
The last hurrah before the rains begin a new season of boating!!! Camp with WRRR members, friends and family on the sunny Tieton River. The Tieton is a class III+ run with continuous gradient, lots of fun rapids, few eddies, and a runnable dam. There will be WRRR Board led trips leaving from the WRRR camp spot on river right Friday through Sunday. Launch times on Saturday at 11am designed to slip in between the commercial trips. Friday launch about 11 AM, Sunday 11 AM. Meet 1 hour earlier to join in the shuttle plans. We will use the takeout on river left after the 2nd bridge at Windy Point. There will also be other club members launching from the dam and upstream river left from camp. Folks run doubles, and launch at all times, so if you miss a trip meet up with some others and have fun.

Camping: Club members and friends camp for free on the Forest Service land in the same spot WRRR has been invading for several years in the dustbowl. WRRR will provide a clean portable toilets but there are no other amenities except what you bring and some trees, rocks, dust and a swift river. Bring a chair, and a musical instrument if you play, for the evening camp circle. Figure on campfires being banned so bring your propane firepits and we will make a circle of those and heaters. There are some USFS fee campgrounds along the river that have running water, are more suited for large RVs or low clearance vehicles, and they are a little less dusty. There is garbage service this year, however it may be full so please plan to pack out your trash. We are really hoping to get a few volunteers to pack out recyclables. If you can please contact Brenan or Nancy Douty 

Main Floats: Launch from the WRRR camp (with shuttle completed BEFORE!)
Fri: 11am
Sat: 11am
Sun: 11am
Shuttles: Please make sure you have arranged a ride for yourself, boat and passengers prior to running the river. If you hope for the best you may be stranded at the takeout. Shuttles line up 1 hour prior to launch from the lower launch area to the road. Official shuttle meet time for all river days is 10am at the Dustbowl just downstream of the WRRR Camp.
Directions: A half hour East of White Pass turn off highway 12 onto Tieton Road (Careful there are 2 Tieton Roads it is a loop), crossing the river about 1/2 mile upstream of Hause Creek Campground. Turn right on the graded gravel road about 1/4 mile from the bridge (FR 580). In less than 1/2 mile after leaving the pavement turn on the 3rd dirt path to the right and curve straight back to the river. Turn left at the boat launch dustbowl and go 50 yards. Look for the WRRR banner and signs. You are there!!!
Potluck: There will be a Breakfast Potluck Sunday the 13th. Bring whatever you like to eat or leftovers from the day before. Please bring Potluck items from 8:30-9am. We will have the potluck by the group fire at the upper WRRR camp near the portipotties.
Noise: Please be courteous of your neighbors. Noise will be loudest near the group areas, plan accordingly.
Dogs: Please keep dogs on leash in the main camp area and locked up during dinner hours, and make sure your dogs are not getting into other peoples kitchen areas! Keep in mind that some people may be cat people :->
Trash: Pack it in, Pack it out, although we are sharing the dumpster this year with RiverBooty. The forest service area we camp in gets trashed some times of the year. WRRR in conjunction with outfitters, and other boaters has been able to keep this area clean and open. Please do your part and know that it is appreciated! Earn big time River points which will prevent you from flipping your gear boat the following season!
