About Us

The Pend Oreille Rowing and Paddling Association exists to promote safe and responsible rowing in the Pend Oreille River valley of Idaho and Washington. We are located in Priest River Idaho and currently row from the Priest River Recreation Area “The Mudhole” in Priest River, Idaho.

 

Our Mission

PORPA is a non-profit organization that exists to promote safe and responsible rowing in the Pend Oreille River valley of Idaho and Washington. We base our operations at The Mudhole Campground in Priest River. We have a fleet of six rowing shells and have access to two more.

 

PORPA COVID-19 update

The members of the PORPA Board of Directors are paying close attention to warnings for social distancing this rowing season and general official guidelines. Being outdoors is suggested to decrease infection, but the ability to abide by social distancing guidelines is less feasible in our sport. As has been announced via web-mails and our rowing program, we are just using singles for anybody and doubles for people in same household.  As of July 19th, we will have three singles available at the Mudhole (Patricia, MAAS-24 and Warren) and the Neher wood single can be booked with 24hrs notice (not stored on-site).  We will also have two doubles, the OW double at the Mudhole and the LW double with 48 hrs advanced notice (not stored on-site). 

PORPA rowing plan guidelines and the clean and disinfect protocol need to be followed at all times.

Let's be safe out there.
