Class Five Alive!

Advanced Whitewater with Marcel Bieg & Carnage Reels

When: Thursday, January 19 6:30-8:30 pm
Put-in: Ninkasi Brewery Admin Building [155 Blair Boulevard Eugene, Oregon 97402] Map

Join the Willamette Kayak and Canoe Club for a chill evening of Class 5 explorations. ACA instructor Marcel Bieg will talk shop on the skills, safety, and mindset needed to aspire to paddle class V whitewater.

We'll also have some exciting videos & photos, including what not to do! Local carnage reels from Willamette Valley boaters will give you a cockpit level view of what it looks like when it all goes wrong!

Clinton Begley will give an update on local efforts to establish a whitewater park in the Eugene Springfield area.

Entry to the event is FREE, and all proceeds from beer sales will support the whitewater park efforts.

For more information, please contact Clinton Begley at
