The WWA Banquet, February 4th, 2017!

TThe WWA's Annual Fundraiser Banquette is fast approaching. The date set is Feb 4, 2017 at the Expo Idaho Building, 5610 Glenwood, Boise ID. We encourage all members to register early for this event and set this date aside on your calendars. The affair features live and silent auctions, numerous raffles and games, and lots of door prizes.  There is a no-host bar and a buffet dinner.  The doors generally open around 4:00 p.m. and the last attendees depart about 11:30 p.m. There is a Banquet registration form in this month's Rapids, or use the link below to register online.

The banquet is the WWA's primary source of revenue for the year.  It is well attended and supported by the membership, as well as the local business community.  It is this event and the tremendous support it receives, that enables the WWA to sustain its on-going efforts to promote safe whitewater jetboating, family recreation, and access for all to rivers throughout the Northwest.

Instructions for Accessing Idaho Power’s Hells Canyon Wi-Fi Flow Monitoring System

Wi-Fi enabled flow monitors are now available at the Hells Canyon Visitors Center, Pittsburg Landing, Cache Creek and Heller Bar. The Wi-Fi signal originates from the stationary flow monitors at these locations. Users should be able to detect the signal up to 0.5 miles from the flow monitor location. Signal strength depends on the terrain, line of sight to the antenna and weather conditions.

Any Wi-Fi enabled device, such as a smart phone, tablet computer or laptop computer should be able to access the river flow data. Users should keep in mind that this signal does not provide access to the Internet and is only for providing flow data in Hells Canyon. The Wi-Fi network cannot be used to send or receive emails or access other types of web-based information.
