Gear Rentals

Its taken a while and I'm sorry for that. I have all the ORCKA gear if anyone is wanting to get out paddling and nothing to paddle. I'm going to try and do rental pick-up/drop-off on Monday and Thursday from 6-8pm. You'll need to call first, as I won't be there if I'm not expecting anyone.
You can call me at 403-894-0740 or email tyronesiphone@gmail.com

Gear for Sale

In a year of building a house and taking on some other projects, having two kayaks seems a little redundant. I am selling my green Jackson Fun ($800 obo), a bent shaft Lendal paddle that has never been used/only assembled ($250 obo), and other miscellaneous gear... I'll list the other misc. stuff in the comments when I figure out what needs to go. Please feel free to use this post as a GEAR SWAP for stuff that you would like to sell/trade as well. Call me at 403-448-0311. Cheers.

Trips May 28 - June 7

Post them here. Also, don't forget High Level's boater call list.


Everything should be up and ready to go. Watch for some wood on the constriction after Fish Ladder on Cameron Creek. The usual local who cuts those things out in the spring wasn't there this year.

Glen C. and some other area boaters are looking for someone to go down Drywood (Spionokop) with. I think I still have his # - although the road access doesn't open until June 15, and the run itself may need another week to be prime.
