Mar 17-31 2019 Paddling Southern Missouri & Arkansas Rivers

Once again, we'll be heading south in March and paddling many of the rivers in Southern MO and Northern AR. Intermediate paddling skills required. Come for as long as you want including for the whole two weeks of day trips.

We'll be basing out of Twin Bridges Canoe and Campground, located on the Norfork River about 20 miles west of West Plains, MO. Cabins, camping and meals available at Twin Bridges.

Rivers likely to be paddled:
Big Piney River, MO
Current River, MO
Little Piney River, MO
Little Piney Creek, MO
Jacks Fork River, MO
Norfork River, MO
Sugar and Indian Creeks, MO
Spring River, AR
Eleven Point River, MO
Bryant Creek, MO
...and others depending on water levels.

Please email if you are interested or plan to join us.

Thanks- Greg Vitale vitol_g@icloud.com

Al and Ana are fine folks and thanks to them for spark plugging this event over the years.' It is a tribute to Al that he has developed leadership
backup to keep the event going. Way to go Al and Greg!

Every one of the folks in this group are so much fun to camp and paddle in.

I thought I knew MO paddle streams but the knowledge of area streams by this group is first class. They also know the secret roads to
Big Piney Micro Brewery - if you like great micro brews this is a must visit.

I missed last year but intend to be there for this year's fun.

I first met Al and Ana some years ago when they attended our School of River Paddling on the Spring River to teach and assist with the operation. Such nice folks, just a delight to be around. In the years since, I have always enjoyed viewing Al's springtime Missouri streams floating itinerary when he posted it every winter. Thus far Marlo and I have only paddled a one day trip on the Current some years ago, but Al's float planning posts have long-ago defrayed the cost of ordering the Missouri Whitewater Association's guide, for reference and entertainment :D

Best Regards
Jim

Jim:
Why don't you and Marlo join us for a few days or more this year? It would be good to see you again!

Dave:
It will really be good to see you this March! (And, as of now, the streams there have been running at about three times the rate of flow compared to last year at this time!)
Be well,
al
