2003 Trip Schedule


Notice and Assumption of Risk

Canoeing and kayaking (paddling) can be dangerous and physically demanding. Canoeists and kayakers (paddlers) take personal responsibility for their personal safety. By participating in BRV trips, you acknowledge an assumption of the risks involved in paddling, which could include serious injury or death.

2003 Trips

The following table lists the trips that BRV members will be leading in 2003. Please note that trip location depends on river levels being sufficient and safe for boating. Trip leaders reserve the right to substitute similar river destinations for the trip they are scheduled to lead. They also decide whether a scheduled trip will occur on Saturday, Sunday, or on both days of their weekend. You must contact the trip leader during the week leading up to a trip, preferrably before Friday evening (since the leader may leave early for the trip). The trip leader reserves the right to restrict the number of paddlers on the trip and to ascertain whether you have the experience to run the chosen river(s). The leader will inform you of the meeting time and location and any other pertinent details for the trip.

The BRV roster contains the official BRV trip schedule that includes the names and phone numbers of the trip leaders for these trips. The roster also includes e-mail addresses for all members with e-mail access. You will receive both the BRV roster and The Voyageur  newsletter upon joining the BRV.
