Breaking news from Wilma…

Location: The Forks, Maine
Bowl Portland and Three Rivers are teaming up for some “Serious Fun”! The Kennebec River is renowned for its breathtaking wilderness setting, exhilarating high-volume whitewater with 6 to 8 foot waves and large holes in rapids that live up to their names like Rock Garden, Big Mama, Whitewasher and the power of the infamous Magic Falls.. All our trips include a snack and drink on the river and a complete homemade meal sure to cure any paddler’s appetite followed by a slide and video presentation of your day on the river. (I think we might even get Zeak to video and Hank, Bernie, Wilma & Maude to guide). Check in for the whitewater rafting trip will be 8:30 AM on Saturday morning. There will be a buffet breakfast offered for $6 per person from 7:00 to 8:30.
There will be bands on both Friday and Saturday night – Friday – The 3 Horseman and Saturday – JC & The Pick-ups! Come and dance the night away by our large bonfire or “Hollow Log Bonfire”!
Driving time from Portland is about 2 ½ hours. You can check – in anytime after 1 pm, we will have Bowl Portland happy hour with specials throughout the evening! Dinner is served until 11 and the bar is open until 1 AM.
