Lobs Hole gauge changed due to flood

It seems like the big water last month has changed the lobs hole gauge, presumably by moving some sand or debris about in the pool where the gauge is located. I paddled Red Rocks on Saturday with the lobs gauge reading about 2.5m, but the actual level seemed more like 2.1 – 2.2ish. Have a look at the graph comparing the last months water levels to see what I mean.

I’d be guessing that 2.4 at lobs is a scrapey minimum level for Red Rocks trips, corresponding to about 2.0m before the change to the gauge.

Edit: Looks like they have now fixed the gauge (16/8/07).

Social Night, Slideshow and DVD Premier @ WetSpot

Thursday 2nd of August, 2007. 6:30pm Start, WetSpot Watersports, 13/68 Wollongong St, Fyshwick.

WetSpot Watersports and KayakCanberra is organising a get together for paddlers and any one interested in paddling to see and share photos and videos of both local rivers and rivers further afield while munching on some snacks and enjoying some beers.

The night will include a slide show by local paddler Guy Reeve who was on the first decent of the Zambezi and has paddled world wide including a first descent in Burma.  WetSpot will be open and providing gear at a discounted rate to those attending.  More then likely the night will be wrapped up with a DVD Premier for one of the new flicks coming out.

It would be great to get as many paddlers along to this as possible, so please do come along. Pass this on to all your paddling buddies. I hope to see you all there.
