Monday, September 25th
This evening the focus is on extreme whitewater. We will screen the video For The Love, which features the story of two brothers who wander the world in search of whitewater adventure. The piece is enjoyable, well-made, and has some interesting technical effects. It would be a worthy candidate for our December party feature, but we are showing it now, in September. So please come and enjoy.
Monday, October 30th
This evening the focus is on extreme flatwater. OK, just kidding, but we do shift gears from the tone of the September program to something considerably more gentle -- my (Ed Gertler’s) account of a 550-mile paddle down the legal length of the Yellowstone River. If the trip was good enough for Lewis and Clark and good enough for Ed, maybe you might like to check it out too. Please come join us.
Friday, December 1st, Holiday Party, Swap Meet and Pot Luck Dinner
This evening we feature the film Same River Twice. A departure from the traditional paddling fare, this is a thoughtful Sundance-quality documentary about how our lives evolve. The subjects are a group of carefree young river guides in the 1970s, on a private float down the Grand Canyon, juxtaposed with a look at their lives 25 years later. It is a story about all of us, and I think if you bring along your non-paddling spouse, neighbor, or colleague, they will enjoy it and relate to it just as much as any river rat. Don’t miss it.
