It's time again for Oregon Whitewater Assoc's (OWA) second annual Jumping/Zipping for Safety fundraiser! This event is one of our primary opportunities to raise funds that go exclusively to the Safety & Training program. This is the program that provides training events like the Pool Session in February, the River Safety Training (RST) in April and the Wilderness First Aid in September. Each of these courses is either free to you or is massively subsidized (by OWA) to make the training affordable for members and their families. These funds are also what allow us to sponsor new training opportunities like Boating 101 and the member requested Kids Water Safety training (working on this for this summer).
Here are the details:
To offer all these opportunities to membership, we must have funding. This opportunity, sponsored by Casey Dale at Bungee.com/ZiplineX.com, provides a huge step forward in our ability to fund these services.
Please look for opportunities to bring together family or friend groups (members of the club or not) and come out for a day of sweet adrenaline! (Weight requirements are that all participants must be between 110# to 280# and closed toed shoes are required)
OWA will be holding a fund raiser on Sunday, May 22nd at Bungee.com, LLC located at NE Healy Rd. and NE Belvins Rd., Amboy, WA 98601. This event is open to anyone who would like to support OWA's Safety program, Member or not.
The cost will be $85 which represents a significant reduction from the standard fee ($100 + tax). The sign-up and payment will be made direct to OWA through our OWA homepage and all proceeds will go to the OWA Safety Program. This is a huge opportunity for us to have a great time outside while also raising a truly significant amount of money for the Safety Program. This opportunity is limited to 32 spots and is not for the faint of heart.
This year we will offer both the opportunity to Bungee Jump OR to traverse the ZiplineX Experience and fly on all the Zip-lines!.
Cost breakdown is as follows:
- Bungee (once) $85.00
- Bungee (twice) $120.00
- Zip-lines $85.00
There are eight zip-lines and eight aerial bridges some of which are suspended 100s of feet above Canyon Creek. This is NOT a family friendly activity and the offer is NOT extended to small (light weight) children.
You may choose either Bungee Jumping OR the Zip-line tour, or both. For those interested in Bungee, there will be jump times available at 10:00AM and other Jump times at 2:00PM.
For Zip-lines, each group will take about 2.5 hours to negotiate the course and will do so in groups of eight. Right now it looks like we can accommodate launch groups of eight at 10:00, 10:30, 1:00 and 1:30.
Depending on participation levels, we may need to consolidate Jump time or Zip times or both. Please sign up for the time you'd like but please be flexible if we have to move you to another time.
Please pass this along to anyone that you think would like to participate in this fund-raising activity.
