White Salmon Retreat status (2017-07-15).   Current fire near the put in has caused concern about the trip.   Reports on the ground is that the fire will be contained this Friday.    River is closed from BZ corner upstream of the put in.    Trip is still on.  Brenan to follow up with Hollenbeck park.   Brenan emailed Zoe, all is good at the camp.    Brenan and Rebecca to post and update facebook and wrrr.org forum.   Kat brought up boat staging.   We want to make sure that we are out of the way and consolidated at the put in.   Especially down by the river.   The river will be higher with almost no room.   Special effort will be spent by POD leaders to keep things out of the way.
