Killer group! Wonderful times were had by all this week as the group's dynamics made for top notch comraderie! Great to see Steve Carnale back for a second week and it appeared that Michelle had a blast! John and Kyle Mason (sorry about the lack of photos of you Kyle) were back again, as well, and we loved meeting their friends Bill and Mark Hummel who were a super fun addition! Kirk and Clare Heyne also made the scene and it was great having them back. We also enjoyed the Coco family (Kathleen, Sara and Aidan). Marshall and Jeff were new on the scene as well as Pierre who's sage advice re sports medicine was much appreciated. We had a great time on all the runs on the Klamath, including the Ikes and the food and cooks were over the top once again! How we love Dan and Mary. Daan and Jess and Farkas and Shannon held court in the instruction department and did an absolutely first class job. Special mention goes to new client Jordan Kaltman for his help sewing up a minor bash Jess sustained. Thanks so much to this group for showing such much appreciation for what we do here - YOU ROCK!

Very small week so we loaded the deck for this photo and included our wonderful chefs Dan and Mary. Special thanks to Steve Barnes for sticking around for a second week! Great meeting Craig Poulsen, John Shea and Bruce and Karen who were a solid and well matched group. Great weather and paddling, although we had a muggy heat up toward the end complete with a fire on the last day. The management here at OB had some major heartburn over this one as close to 20 fires were started in a ten mile area (T-bar to Dillon) due to an unobservant truck driver who was inadvertently dragging a bit of chain. I am more than happy to report that the fires are contained and we never even had smoke. All good here now and blue green with the finest summer weather one could ask for (high 80's day and low 50's night). Lots of fish were seen this week on Wednesday dive trip! It was Peter Kettering's last week and he will be sorely missed. He and Benny did a great job, as always! Thanks for coming

Beautiful week! Very game and fun crew. This week coincided with kid's camp (which was a HUGE success) and we had a number of parents who attended the adult week. Great seeing Bruce and Ione and Dave, speaking of repeat parents, as well as Lauren who was a terrific new addition to the OB family. We had a spectacular dive day on Wednesday and the King Salmon were plentiful! Great days paddling on the Salmon and the Klamath, although levels are finally making the commute to the K a sure thing. Dan and Mary were their ever loving slam dunk chefs in the galley and the instructional staff at both the kids and adult camps knocked themselves out to deliver an exceptional product. Special thanks to Kyle for the dinner music. Great times and THANKS FOR COMING!
