The idea of this day is to get as many awesome women as we can out on the Green river together. It will be all about simply having fun on the water together as a big group of rad ladies. All too often the river is filled with men and I want to have a day where the women take it over!The plan is to start with a group run on the Upper followed by a trip down the Narrows. If you’re not up for the Narrows, then we’ll have a group taking out after the Upper. It is not meant to be a day of instruction or ideal for first timers, but of course the idea would be to support each other, share lines, suggestions, etc…
After the run, we’d like to all come together at Fishtop for some drinks, light food and hanging ou…t! The event is sponsored by Dagger Kayaks and Adventure Technology Paddles.
Additionally the event will be a fundraiser for the Shannon Christy Memorial Fund, a fund to honor Shannon’s memory by supporting women in the paddling community. We are recommending (it is not required) a minimum $10 donation for the event which will also get you a raffle ticket and the chance to win a paddle from AT, a sparyskirt, throw bag and gear bag from Seals Sprayskirts and Accessories, gift certificates from Mountain Khakis, a pair of shoes from Astral Whitewater and great GIRLS AT PLAY swag!
Mark your calendars and share this event with anyone who might be interested! We want ALL women who feel comfortable paddling either the Upper Green or the Narrows. Lets see how many ladies we can get out there!
