Holiday Party Program

Wow, have we got a great show this evening. We will be again screening the very excellent documentary “Riversense.” I say “again” as we first screened it over 16 years ago. Were you there? Stealing someone else’s description, “This wonderful video describes the river way of life through the eyes of paddlers.  The late William Nealy describes how whitewater shaped his life and marriage.  T.R. Yon shows us the pro paddling tour from through his 15 year old eyes.  Katie and BJ Johnson, video producers and extreme paddlers, share their perspective on the water and parenthood.  And Dunbar Hardy earns his name with an inspiring recovery from breaking his back on a waterfall in Ecuador. This is not your basic extreme video, although there is plenty of whitewater action.  This is a beautiful documentary done by its Emmy award winning director, Kate Geis.” And adding to the fun, Kate will join us (virtually) and maybe some of the cast, to introduce and answer questions. Yes, you have heard this before, don’t miss it.

Bonus, if you cannot make the live party, you can register to receive it by Zoom. We will not be recording it, however, so do keep this date open. Showtime will be about 8:00. Happy holidays.

Call for future programs

We are always looking for new talent. We are always looking for ideas. If you take pictures or videos and would like to share them, do not be shy. It can be distant locales or you local favorites. If you have a talent to share, then teach us. If you want to share an alternate outdoor sport (like hiking, backpacking, caving) we would enjoy that too. The program chair would like to hear from you (, 301-585-4381). I eagerly await.
