Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, April 24, 2013 5C Plumas Paddle Palooza promises pleasant paddling Folks of all ages enjoy various paddling vessels at a previous year's Paddle Fest at Lake Almanor. This year's festival has been renamed the Plumas Paddle Palooza and will take place at Spanish Creek on April 28. Photo submitted James Wilson Sports Reporter The annual Paddle Fest put on by Feather River College's Outdoor Recreation Leadership program's students returns this year with a new name: the Plumas Paddle Palooza. The Plumas Paddle Palooza will take place at the swimming hole with a rope swing on Spanish Creek just upstream from Oakland Camp between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on April 28. The event has been a staple in Plumas County for nine years. The Paddle Fest originally started ott on Lake Almanor, but moved to Spanish Creek four years ago to be closer tp the college's campus. "It's really a drop-in thing," said outdoor recreational leadership instructor Darla DeRuiter. "Whenever someone shows up, we'll be ready to teach them some tricks, or at least play some games." The FRC Outdoor Recreation Leadership program will provide gear along with instruction to those interested. The event will allow the public to demo all kinds of human-powered watercraft including whitewater kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, sea kayaks and canoes. The festival proves especially useful to those considering purchasing a water toy, but who want to experience several types before choosing what kind to buy. Instructional drills and classes will include kayak rolling sessions, raft flip drills, paddle clinics, guided sessions down parts of the creek and several other events. The event is free and all age groups and skill levels are welcome. Hamburgers, hot dogs and cold drinks will be sold on site, so it's suggested to bring a bit of cash to get a bite to eat. Everyone is invited to swing by the local favorite swimming hole and try out some new paddle sports at any point during the festivities.
