The Arkansas Canoe Club organized a "first timers" trip to the Cossatot River and this years running was a smashing success. There were 15 first timers and and 21 support boaters plus lots of support people making shuttles happen and generally monitoring the groups progress down the river. The water level was near perfect (4.1') as was the weather. There were lots of swims, including yours truly, but nothing more than a few bumps, and bruises were showing at the end of the day. Congrats to all!
