Folks, a few CWA members are going to head down to the Saint Francis for the MWA races the weekend of March 17th. Several members of the Missouri Whitewater Association have come to our races, and we think it would be fun to visit theirs.
Even if you do not want to race, the St. Francis is an awesome river that's only six hours away. (It's an hour south of St. Louis) It's mostly 2+/3, with some really cool drops and fantastic play. There are challenging lives for those who want. The shuttle is easy, there is a campground at the takeout, and there is a town a few minutes away for food. There is also a riverside trail for hiking or even a foot shuttle. It's hard to believe that CWA folks don't head there more often.
St. Francis on AW
I'm heading down Friday early afternoon. I'm likely going to race in one class, but mostly boat socially. Camp at the take out: Silver Mines Recreation Area
