Attention!!! There will not be a roll session this week in Albuquerque at the JCC on Thursday, July 14th. The JCC is having a late night campout which includes swimming, and we don’t want to crowd the pool.
We will return to having roll sessions beginning next week, Thursday July 21st.

AWC Clinics – June 25 – June 26 2016
The Adobe Whitewater Club of New Mexico Summer clinics and potluck will be held on the weekend of June 25 at the Taos Junction Bridge near Pilar (directions are below.)
Saturday, June 25th starting at 9:00am, we will have beginner, advanced beginner, intermediate, and kids kayaking clinics, plus a canoe clinic, all led by ACA certified instructors. The beginner kayak, canoe and the kid’s clinics will be held on the State Park section of the river. The intermediate clinics will be conducted on the Race Course.
Saturday evening after the clinics (around 6:00pm) we will have a potluck dinner at the Taos Junction Bridge Campground Pavilion. These cook outs are great fun – even if you don’t attend the clinics, come out for an evening of socializing, meeting other boaters, and enjoying the sound of the river! Bring your favorite meal to share, your own beverages and serving utensils. While there are tables and seating at the pavilion, you may wish to bring your own. There is a fireplace there so bring a little firewood if you have it. (Camping is free at the Taos Junction Bridge campground Friday and Saturday nights for AWC members.)
Sunday we encourage everyone to hit the river for a paddle. AWC will not formally be organizing any paddles, so it will be up to people in the community to network and organize among themselves.
AWC is providing free camping to AWC members Friday and Saturday nights at the Taos Junction Bridge campground. We have reserved the area around the pavilion and on the shelf below. Camping or parking at individual campsites is not included and requires a separate site fee. The TJB camp area has potable water and flush toilets. The Rio Bravo campsite located just down the road has coin operated hot showers and a utility sink for washing dishes that you can also use.
The clinics have been fully booked the past several years so pre-registration is required. Please email email@example.com to reserve a spot and get registration and payment instructions.
CLINIC COSTS for AWC Members:
- Adult (18 years and over) $30
- Students (11 – 17 years) $15
