October 15-16, 2016 (please note date change!)
Once upon a time GCRG conducted Fall Meetings which were sort of a mini-GTS with some GCRG business thrown in. Eventually we realized that community building and just plain having fun with our river buddies has a ton of value, and the best way to do that after the river season is to get outside somewhere interesting, hike, camp and occasionally even boat with a few speakers along for the ride. So voilà – the GCRG FALL RENDEZVOUS was born! In past years we have hiked out at Marble View on the North Rim, we’ve camped on the esplanade at Toroweap, and we’ve enjoyed the gorgeous views from the porch of the Kane Ranch. REALLY FUN STUFF! So check out the information below for the upcoming GCRG Fall Rendezvous and sign up now. We hope to see you there!!
2016 Fall Rendezvous: Let's Find Our Park (South Rim Adventure!)
This year is the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. Let's show our own park some love and head to the South Rim! Have you ever wanted to see the historic boat collection? Or check out split twig figurines that are anywhere from 2,000 to 4,000 years old? Or how about seeing John Wesley Powell's pocket watch (be still, my heart!!), or taking a guided tour of the fascinating Power House, a national historic landmark? Additional plans include an interpretive tour of the rejuvenated Desert View Watchtower, a stewardship project in the historic village, and a fun hike. And with any luck, we may get to meet our new Superintendent and we'll certainly forge new friendships with our park partners!
So save the dates (October 15-16) and let's go and "find our park" together! What an outstanding opportunity! As more details and logistics become clear, we'll post them on this page, so please check back.
The cost is $40, and you must be a current member of Grand Canyon River Guides. (Note: you're welcome to bring a friend(s) or "significant other" along; they just need to pay the fee). This is a fun community-building event, so join us! We look forward to chillin’ out with you after a great river season!
