The Summer Kickoff is an annual rafting & kayaking trip that is hosted by Travis Johnson & Celeste Peterson. It's basically an excuse to get on the river, have a huge party, and introduce you to the whitewater of the Sierra. Here is the 2010 Video that shows what this river has to offer! We donate our time and gear so you can have a fun weekend on the river. Join us for a Downieville experience that you won't forget. And, remember, we limit the trip to 70 people max so sign-up early! It sells out quickly every year.
The dates are May 20 - 22 2011. First time rafters, experienced rafters, and kayakers are welcome! Here's a front row seat video through Maytag.
After the big day on the water, we'll have a huge dinner (you'll be hungry) and then.... the party begins. We take over the St.Charles Place tavern with our own DJ.... no explanation necessary from here.
Note: Some people will be heading to Downieville early for mountain biking, kayaking, and hiking. Feel free to do the same (you need to take care of your lodging for those extra nights).
