OWA March Meeting
Keen Footwear - 926 NW 13th Avenue, Suite 210 Portland, Oregon 97209
Sam Drevo has a great show in store for March 2011. He will present his first documentary film project: Trout on the Wind - The Hemlock Dam Removal Project, a Huckin Huge film about Century Paddle, and an extreme rafting slideshow that is sure to inspire those who wonder about limits of whitewater sport. Trout on the Wind story was told via slideshow at last years OWA winter meeting, and turned into a 22:30 short film that won the Jon Muir award at the Yosemite Film Festival in 2010.
OWA member Bruce Ripley provided the mapping graphics for Trout on the Wind- so this video is truly an OWA collaboration! Century Paddle was simply a concept in 2009 and has matured into an annual sea kayaking expedition from Portland to the Pacific Ocean to benefit Team River Runner and We Love Clean Rivers. While 2010 was an exceptionally tough year for Sam, breaking his back pushing the limits of whitewater, he witnessed some truly amazing rafting descents that redefined whats possible in the world of rafting including a rafting descent of Condit Dam. 2011 is going to be a landmark year for Northwest River Guides & eNRG Kayaking, and Sam will be making an exciting announcement at this meeting.
This will be a joint meeting with OKCC.
