*** Memorial Day BBQ & Raft ***

Come join Norcal Rafters for a Memorable Memorial Day BBQ on the South Fork of the American River. We'll start off at The Chili Bar put in and take on 6 miles of CLASS III rapids such as MAYA, TRIPLE THREAT, and TROUBLEMAKER. Then we'll work our way down to the Heningsen-Lotus Park where we'll have a BBQ set up and you'll have your choice of hotdogs, hamburgers, and sodas oh my!! On a full tummy we'll continue on down thru THE GORGE and where FOWLER'S ROCK, SATANS CESSPOOL, HOSPITAL BAR will be awaiting us.

Once the run is complete, we'll carpool back to WHITEWATER PHOTOGRAPHY in Coloma and all of us will have a chance to view pics from TroubleMaker, Satans Cesspool, and Hospital Bar so you'll have record of your fantastic experience. Some of us will also be hitting up Islands in Folsom for burgers and beer afterwards as well...so feel free to come mingle with the members. Hope to see ya all soon on Memorial Day Weekend.
