The Boathouse on the Red will not rent watercraft or conduct fitness classes when the river is at flood stage. As such, the Tuesday intro to SUP and SUP fit (preseason) sessions for early next week have been canceled. As of now we plan to have only one session next week (thursday, June 26th), and additional preseason sessions on July 1st and July 3rd. Remember, preseason sessions are first come, first served and only $5. We'll start 4 week sessions the second week in July, which will open for online preregistration by the end of the month.
Things are coming along, just not quite as fast as we want them too. But, they are coming! Current projections have the storage container on site by the first of July, with the office container soon to follow. Pre-season paddleboarding intro classes should begin (online registration only - stay tuned for the link, should be up early next week) the last week of June. We're just chomping at the bit to get folks in the river!
Boathouse soft opening is less than a month away...stay tuned for a date!
Ground UP is proud to be one of four local Grand Forks non-profits that are a part of the giveGRAND charitable challenge week, April 27-May 3rd. Your tax deductible donation during this week will be matched dollar for dollar by some of our community partners, so there isn't a better time to show your support of our mission to bring adventure to the lives of the regions youth (and adults too!). Check out the giveGRAND page for more on the charitable challenge and to donate to our organization.
It's a done deal. The race has reached its cap a full two weeks before it happens. More than 100 kids and parents will challenge themselves during the event as they navigate through the Assiniboine Forest on bike and foot and take on mystery challenges--and this time, thanks to the efforts of our guest race directors, Tara and John Kenny, I will be one of them! --Andy Magness, Ground UP adventures president.
