After two years of social distancing, we are looking forward to seeing our river family once again to celebrate the river, the outdoors, and each other at the Mountain Village Resort in Stanley, Idaho! Bring your boat and a friend and join us on May 20th-22nd to have a weekend of river fun and personal growth.
As with past years, the 2022 IRR will be a time for guides to get together on the river to talk about mental and physical health, professional development, and river awareness and conservation. We are happy to welcome several guest speakers and workshop leaders that will be bringing their knowledge and expertise to those attending, and it wouldn’t be complete without a Saturday night River Celebration band to bring it all together!
Stay tuned as our program is rolled out for 2022 - YOU DON"T WANT TO MISS THIS!
