Where to meet:  Home Depot Parking Lot off Harbison Blvd.

 

When to meet:  8:00 am to consolidate people, boats and gear.

 

Skills required:  Class 3 skills, good boat control and a decent roll would be nice.  

 

Gear required/suggested:  Of course the big five.  A dry top and wet suit is recommended.  The water is not particularly cold, but the weather could be chili.  Be thoughtful in choosing good insulating and/or dry gear.  Also pack a snack and bring plenty of water.

 

Other useful info:  FB 9 is a natural flow river, which means we will not know the flow until we are fixing to go.  The ideal flow for a FPD is 1200 –2400 cfs.  If the flow is outside that range, an alternative venue may be proposed such as the USNWC or the Upper Green.  Please email Howard Wallace at This email address is being protected from spambots.
