OMGosh! the PORPA SPRINTS on the Priest River were such a success! 50 participants in canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, and rowing shells! Over a dozen youth raced in many events including the popular relay races! People came from Spokane, Coeur d'Alene, Ione, and all over the INW. Our Canadian friends from Nelson, Cranbrook, and elsewhere joined in the fun!

We are proud to issue our 2023 Newsletter. This spectacular publication (thanks Sean and Sheila of Synergy Design Studios in Newport, WA) is full of infomation about updoming events, celebration of accomplishments, and amazing photos (Thanks Holli Axel of Axel Images in Priest River, ID)! Hopefully this great newsletter gets you out to a PORPA event at least twice this summer! We look forward to spending time with each other enjoying the beautiful PNW!
