You will need a Discovery Pass to park at Plum Boat Launch unless you park on the street. I parked on the street this past Sunday. It was no big deal, just[masked] ft further to the water. You DO NOT need a discovery pass to park at the Fall City Community Park. Once we launch from the boat launch, we will float or kayak back to the park. When we reach the park, we will pack up and some of us will head back to the boat launch to retrieve the vehicles. Please bring food and drink to share with others. Don't forget the sunblock, hats, water shoes or sandals. I did this trip yesterday and had the time of my life. We were able to conduct a mini rescue mission for 5 rafters that were stranded half way through their float trip with 3 torn rafts. Please do not be so casual as to bring a pool raft. The river is not that forgiving.
**A requirement to wear life jackets on several of King County's major rivers was passed by the Metropolitan King County Council 5-4 on Monday. Violators could get a warning the first time, but an $86 fine after.
***As far as this event system goes, participation is voluntary and you attend at your own risk, and that Organizers are indemnified.
That's the particulars. The reality is that we're going to have a great time. If you want to, we can meetup for dinner or drinks afterwards in town. See you on Saturday!
