Senoritas on the South Fork of the American

Lotus Designs is hosting the Senoritas on the South Fork of the American River 1st Annual Fundraiser for American Whitewater on Sunday, April 25, 2004.  This is the first of a series of professionally-instructed clinics for women.  This is what Lotus Designs have to say:

The watery women of Lotus Designs will be hostessing this gathering of the girls at the American River Festival as a gift to the good folks at American Whitewater.  Any woman who is comfortable paddling down the S.F. of the American River (Chili Bar section) is encouraged to sign up for tips, tricks, and take-out party.

Registration is free to Members of American Whitewater!  Here's your Ticket to Ride.

Donations to American Whitewater are greatly appreciated to help keep up their work of protecting and restoring whitewater rivers across the country.

We look forwards to paddling with you.

Sincerely; Lisa Beckstead, Christie Dobson, Courtney Lynch, Jamie Cooper, Emily Jackson, and Whitney Lonsdale -- Lotus Diva-Dirtbags
