We are taking every precaution to keep our members, coaches/steers, & program participants safe during the COVID-19 pandemic: 

  • Postponing the start of our club’s paddling season, including practices, races & program. 
  • Postponing the move of our O-6 canoe fleet to the Hale at Nichol’s Basin until further notice. 
  • Constantly monitoring Hood River Health Department website for updates and state advisories. 
  • Encouraging club members to stay home and take steps to avoid infection.
  • We are committed to doing everything we can to keep our members and paddling community safe. With the situation changing rapidly, we encourage you to stay safe.
