Hey there folks!
Happy 2024! We have lots of awesome updates coming this year so STAY TUNED!
The first big announcement is the 2024 Kickoff Celebration! The Viking party is scheduled for January 23rd at the RecBar in Louisville at 6PM. We will be providing sodas and finger foods. Full bar and full menu available for purchase. We will NOT be hosting a gear swap at this time due to a lack of space in the venue. But WAIT! Theres MORE! Just because we’re not doing a gear swap doesn’t mean you won’t have a chance to go home in a new boat! Thanks to Rocky Mountain Rafts we will be raffling off a PHATCAT! Brand new in the box with a 6 year warranty. The boat is their Electric Raspberry color. Come win a new boat to take your best friends on the river!
The NPFF in Frankfort is coming next month, February 17, which means Jess Cup!!! We will need volunteers as well as racers. Stay tuned for registration details for the race, and anyone interested in volunteering can reach out to the Vikings here or through the FB group.
The Vikings Trip Planning Meeting will be taking place during the monthly meeting February 6th. Anyone interested in hosting a trip this year is encouraged to attend the meeting and discuss. We will attempt to have dates for the Beginners Clinic, Elkhorn Clinic, a possible Swiftwater Rescue Course and Summer Paddle Party at that time.
Roll Practice is coming soon! Daniel Forero is our Roll Meister for 2024 and is working on scheduling roll practices for now through May.
