The River water temperature is usually in the low to mid 70s. Air temperatures can reach as high as 120°F in the summer and drop as low as 45°F at night in the early spring and late fall. Sunshades (at times with misters) are provided by the Club. We strongly recommend you bring personal umbrellas & float toys.

There is at least one trip leader on each of our weekend trips. We expect everyone to lend a hand when asked as it makes the trip fun for everyone. Breakfasts are do-it-yourself meals. Lunch and dinner are group projects. Since many of us now own RVs with air conditioning, most of the lunch and dinner preparations are done inside. Our chef will need help with BBQ prep. Everyone needs to help with clean up.
For breakfast, you have a choice of cereal, bagels, donuts or muffins. Saturday lunch is cold cut sandwiches or pasta salad with chips, salsa and veggies. Cocktails and appetizers are served Saturday at 5 PM. Sunday brunch is garbage omelets, pancakes or whatever is left over. The dinner menu varies from trip to trip; it will include bar-b-que chicken with steak, tri tip, pork loin, fresh ahi or something special cooked up by our chef. If you require special foods, we encourage you to bring what you need.
The Club owns a trailer that is fully stocked with skis, vests, a BBQ, beer, soda, paper goods, cooking utensils, sun shades, etc. The trailer will be out at our campsite on Friday. Gene usually unpacks the trailer and sets up the tables and drinks. If he needs help on Saturday, set up gets done before skiing. On Sunday, we will need help in breaking down camp and cleaning up.
