Let's Go Rafting!

We'll meet at 11:00 am and rent rafts to float down the river.

THIS IS A CASH ONLY EVENT.  I'm guesstimating that the cost will be around $25 per person.  This may be more or less depending on the turnout.

I'll count how many people show up and figure out the cost depending how many people show up and how many rafts we need.  This will include the shuttle raft back to the river rat parking lot.  If you have a raft or kayak feel free to join us, you are responsible for your shuttle from where we get out which is the Harrington access point.

Bring sunscreen, water, snacks, squirt guns, water cannons and pretty much anything you want to play in the water with!  Alcohol is allowed but please be responsible!

Depending on how fast the water is running,and if we hang out on the riverbank we should be back around 5:00 pm.  Pizza afterwards?  I like Mark and Monica's which is close by on Manzanita blvd near Fair Oaks. (4751 Manzanita Ave, Carmichael, CA 95608)

A couple of additional things that have been mentioned and that I thought of.

People who want to Kayak are welcome but you will have arrange a shuttle back to your car.

Parking is tight in the raft rental parking lot.  If you drive down Pennsylvania Ave there is plenty of parking on the first street on the right.

    Sooooo much fun. I didn't know rafting was so dangerous. There were so many shooters there from the water guns, to the jello shots to the cameras. Everyone was shooting the shooter. Thanks Brian and everyone.

    Is it too late to sign up? My cell is 2234305. I will be by myself

    • Ray

      although I can not go but as far as I know you are fine. no need for reservation. Brian can surely explain that better.

      August 17, 2013

    • brian h.

      It's not too late, I don't think I set a deadline. I will rent the rafts after I have a head count.

      August 17, 2013

  • Debbie K (Puddle J.

    I think I got too much sun on the water this weekend in spite of all the sunscreen. Can I still come to Mark and Monica's after?

    August 17, 2013

    • brian h.

      Sure but I'm not sure what time we will be there. Around 5:00 or 6:00?

    I attended this rafting last year it was a BLAST. I had a great time.
    I am going to have to miss it this year.

    I just wanted to ask if you called River Rat and made a reservation. I don't think it costs anything. One time I went without a reservation and it was a very long wait.

    Room for one more? I love rafting! Does anyone have a waterproof music player they'd want to bring?

    August 17, 2013

  • Mark U! ՟՜ ҉ ☺.

    Brian do you want to tie the rafts together? I went a few weeks ago and we tied 3 12 man rafts into 1 mega raft. it was fun and kept everyone together

  • Rosemary T.

    I'll be on the 'send off' committee. I'm usually on Pennsyllvania Ave at that time jogging with the dog, so will look for you all.

    August 17, 2013

  • Sheila S

    Is there room for small coolers on the rafts?

    August 15, 2013

    • Rachel

      A small cooler should be fine and we can consolidate and share while Brian is taking headcount and CASH at River Rat before we launch. Mark is right about glass being a bad idea. Remember to protect items with Zip Lock or tupperware that you don't want to get wet. Some people like to squirt others and there is a small rapid that will help us cool off too.

    remember not to bring glass bottles on the river

  • Rachel

    The name of the street that we parked on was Magnolia. The pizza at Mark and Monica's is yummy. I plan to go. I suggest bringing a sweater or a change of clothes as it is cold inside after a day of rafting. Thanks Brian for organizing. Looking forward to meeting new folks and seeing friends again.
