Safety Saturday on the Payette – 7/21/07


Idaho recently lost a popular guide on the Payettes South Fork. Honor the life of a veteran guide by brushing up on your own knowledge of safety.

The Idaho Whitewater Association is planning its annual Safety Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., July 21, on the Main Payette River from Banks to Chief Parrish.
The organization will have information and a safety check of gear at the Banks launch area. Beaches will be identified where stations will be set up for raft-flipping exercises, kayak rolling, a throw-rope toss, swimming practices, a Z-drag demo and kayak extrication.
Participants can pull into each beach and take part in the activities. There will be a barbecue at Chief Parrish where rafters and kayakers can eat and then head on downstream to the take out point at Beehive Bend.
