“Need river gear? Got too much? Maybe you just want to make some money off that old bucket boat to buy your own self-bailer? Put it aside for FOR’s annual river gear swap at the American River Festival on Saturday & Sunday, at Henningsen-Lotus Park in Lotus, California. Looking for your used kayaks, rafts, boat frames, life jackets, paddles, and more! Help keep the tradition alive by signing up to bring gear or volunteer. A committee of experienced Gear Swap types are coming together to make this happen. If you would like more information or want to get involved, please email gearswap@friendsoftheriver.org. See you on river and at the swap!”
