BWA Spring Clinic
Spring clinic time is here so whether student or volunteer make plans to come to the first big river gathering of the year. This year the directing duo is going to set a new standard for the total clinic experience. Rumour is there will be a pig roast for Saturday night dinner and that will set the tone for one great celebration after an exciting day of student training. For more clinic info click here.

Annual Red River Clean up
The annual Red river clean up is scheduled for May 9th. This event offers the opportunity to give back to the rivers that give so much to the paddling community. Just ask anyone who has done one of these clean ups and you will see why you need to put this on your bucket list. Check out the forum to sign up and come help make this jewel of a river a little more beautiful.
