Hi Everybody,

Just wish to make a few things better known here and maybe clear up some misconceptions about The CGW2.

The CGWA is no more. Since 2019, we are The Columbia Gorge Wind & Water Assoc. (CGW2).

We are a 30+ year old 501c3 not-for-profit volunteer membership organization
representing the interests of our members, who are primarily Gorge wind-riders. Our major cause is to help establish, improve, maintain, and protect the quality and safety of Gorge launch-sites for windsurfing, kiting, paddling, and foiling. There is hardly a single Gorge launch-site that the CGW2 has not had some hand in establishing and helping to maintain.

With the exception of Swell City, we do not own or have governance over any Gorge launch-sites, but rather make effort to work with those who do in the interest of our membership. We are not a public service agency. We are not a governing authority. We have no paid staff. We are a group of member volunteers who, through their collective efforts, support and improve The Gorge wind-riding experience. We also have a small Board of Directors who generally take care of the nuts-and-bolts planning and operation of the organization.

"We," are no greater than the sum of our members and their joint efforts. As such, we highly encourage all Gorge wind-riders to join the CGW2 and consider leading, and/or volunteering to further our causes which are funded 100% by donations from our membership.

If you have an idea or proposed action and wish The CGW2 to help support it, join us at https://cgw2.org/shop or contact us at: https://cgw2.org/contact

The more paying members we have, the greater success we have in our advocacy efforts. Thanks to all the volunteers at this organization!

Those who support The CGW2 with their annual membership and generous donations are certainly welcomed and appreciated, as are those who support The CGW2 as volunteers and donate their valuable time in helping to establish, improve, maintain and protect our Gorge launch sites.

Have an idea and wish The CGW2's support? Join us and/or donate here: https://cgw2.org/shop

SWAP MEET BRING IT

Attention Gorge Wind-Riders –At long last The Columbia Gorge Wind & Water Assoc., (CGW2.org) will be conducting its first 2021 use-gear SWAP MEET in almost two years this coming Memorial Day weekend. Spread the word!

Who?

Windsurfers, Kiters, Paddlers & Foilers with gear to sell - Bring all that good gear you’ve been meaning to sell. Because of pandemic related restrictions on gatherings, there has not been a used-gear swap meet since fall of 2019 so there is a tremendous amount of pent-up demand so bring it on and bring it all!

Beginners, Bargain Hunters, & Wind Riders of all levels – This is your first opportunity in almost two years to browse tons of used gear at bargain prices and catch-up with your wind-riding pals!

Donors & Volunteers CGW2.org needs volunteers to help set-up (6:30 – 7:30 am) and take-down (noon – 1:00 pm) its trailers full of donated gear for sale. If you’re looking for gear or parts, this will be your opportunity at first dibs! Just show up, or contact us with questions at https://cgw2.org/contact

CGW2.org will also be taking donations of usable undamaged gear at this event. We are in particular need of beginner and youth gear, two-piece masts, undamaged SUP boards & paddles.
We’re grateful for all donations, however, we cannot take damaged gear, or ancient artifacts that have no value.


When?: Sunday May 30th

What time?: 8:00 am to Noon (sellers may set-up as early as 7:00 am.)

Where?: Hood River Waterfront Lot #1 (large lot just south of The Hood River Event Site).

Parking?:

For Sellers – Vehicles can enter Lot #1 east-side gate on N. 1st St as early as 7:00am. There will be a $10 exhibitor fee to enter. Cash or check only. There will be lots of space to spread out so bring all your stuff!
For Buyers – Street parking on N. 2nd St., west of Lot #1 and Portway Ave West of N. 2nd is free. Street parking east of Lot #1 on N. 1st St and Portway Ave between Lot #1 and The Event-Site is metered by the hour.

Finally, at this time, Hood River County has been moved into the COVID-19 “low-risk” category. The wearing of masks is optional for the fully vaccinated. The unvaccinated will be expected to attend wearing their mask. If you are ill, experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 (runny nose, fever, cough, etc.) or recently been exposed to another experiencing symptoms, please stay home.
