Down River Equipment of Denver just held the coolest demo for CKS staff of the season.  Down River provided an overnight raft trip on Browns Canyon supplying food and beverages.

CKS Professionals Claude deMoss and Gordon Klco focus during the Down River rig instructional.

“Camping with Down River I felt like we were in an outdoor product magazine ad.  We kind of were… every piece of gear was perfect and I found myself asking how much is this, oooh this would be sweet to have…”  -CKS

Down River builds an impressive frame and drop bags for convenient packing..

Down River planned the event as an instructional to CKS staff on how to rig rafts.  The clinic was educational and certainly familiarized the self-proclaimed professionals at CKS.  The Down River crew illustrated the benefits of varying types of drop bags, harnessing, and the best oar frames in the industry.

CKS Store Manager enjoys the morning paddle out from the front thwart. Notice those gorgeous wood oars.

That moonlit night the display continued with a camp kitchen that would make Coleman envious with fire pans, blaster stove for coffee, aluminum table tops, packable knives and other utensils, and coolers packed full of beverages.

Thank you Down River for the educational clinic, the great dinner, and an excellent night on the Arkansas.
