Many rowers are getting ready for the Priest River Sprints next month. Registrations are ready at www.porpa.org All of our singles are operational and at the Mudhole except for the wooden Neher.

Another option would be to register for kayak, canoe, paddleboard or raft races, check it out. If you would like to unsubscribe to these messages contact [email protected]
