UBERPresents ... a monthly gathering of our community

Please join Uber Adventures (http://uberadventures.net), Canyoneering California (http://www.meetup.com/canyoneering), and Zach Byars from Sierra Rescue for our monthly community gathering. In addition to our usual discussions and socializing, Zach will lecture/present on rising water problems in canyons and rivers (warnings, safety and response).


It is the intention of Uber Adventures to sponsor/host these community events on the 2nd Wednesday of every month (with a few exceptions for scheduling and holidays). The purpose of these gatherings is to

• Stay in touch with our friends ... and meet new ones

• Voice community concerns: Positive, Negative, Constructive

• Share canyon conditions and explorations

• Talk about new gear, techniques

• Make community announcements

In addition to the 'casual meeting' format of these gatherings, we will invite:

• Icons & Pillars of our community to present on topics relevant to our sport

• Explorers, publishers & beta-makers to share the magic of what they do

• Manufacturers of canyoneering-specific gear to share their new designs

• Land Managers & Rangers to present on 'perspective' and resource management

• Photographers and Filmmakers to screen their artwork

• ...anyone who wants to present ...on anything (Flash Floods, Park Service, SAR Challenges, A History of Canyoneering, Caving-The Brother of Canyoneering, The Wet Canyons of America's Northwest, The Skinnies of Utah's Southeast, Grand Canyoneering, or just a great story with great pictures) .. anyone interested in presenting, give me a shout.

Uber Adventures will provide 'Wine & Cheese' style refreshments!
