- John WhippleJul 07, 2021HAZARDS & UPDATESHello all, You have been asking for a place outside of facebook to have conversation, share trip, tip, and tricks, and to generally get to know one another. Now you have that opportunity. Check out the forums for the Grand Valley Paddling Club. This is a new feature and may have some bugs. Please let me know if you have any issues. Thanks so much for being part of the club and sharing your joy of the river with others. WhipLike
