Playak News Flash
The famous Playak News Flash informs tens of thousands of paddlers around the world about the most popular paddling news each day. Playak editors

Each Friday, we send out the Weekly Digest (instead of the daily News Flash), containing the top headlines of the past 7 days, as well as the most popular videos and forum topics, plus a
list of upcoming events.

Pamela Creek is one of those tiny creeks that turns out to be really fun. It's in the Gold River zone on Vancouver Island - the Gold and its tributaries represent an unusually concentrated region of whitewater with good varitey and varying difficulties - nothing there is too crazy either.

It ends on the Ucona River, where there are two really nice small waterfalls to end on a high note.
Here's the beta for Pamela , and of course some photos.

This is the only run I've done in Alberta - I had the chance to sneak away for a day while in Calgary for work, and this is what I got to paddle. It was a fun day, and it was great to meet and hang out with the Calgary crew. I will definitely be back. read more...
