Topic Information

Cary Solberg, Risa Davis and Karen Eichhorn will be engaging us in a lively discussion on the what, whys and how-to's of river etiquette.  They will talk about launch do's and don'ts, river, camp and kitchen customs and practices with a question and answer period to follow.  They will discuss what their collective experience has been and what they have done on previous river trips at the put-in, take-out, camp arrival, setting up the kitchen and group site, meal preparation, cleaning and fire tendering.  Boating skills and safety will be talked about, too."
Speaker Information
Karen Eichhorn is a charter member of OWA.  She has served as treasurer for one term and is presently our secretary.  Karen began whitewater rafting in the early 90's going on guided trips.   After winning an Aire kayak with a $10 raffle ticket at the Clackamas Whitewater Festival, she got hooked on river rafting.   After many swims and always sitting in cold water, she upgraded to a cat boat.  She presently runs her own 14' cat.  Karen and Ernie have run many of the NW rivers, including Idaho, Utah, Alaska, and the Colorado.  They are about to embark on their second trip on the Tatshenshini River in Alaska
