Members of the Castlegar Chamber of Commerce went floating down the Columbia River at Thursday night’s Business After Business event.

Andrea and Chris Ryman, owners of Endless Adventures, took members out onto the river in a raft, kayaks and on paddle boards. Conditions were ideal, as the river was calm and it was hot enough that those who ended up in the river weren’t cold afterwards.

The river adventure ended across from the Lion’s Head Pub, where members sampled beers and appetizers like deep-fried dill pickles and potato skins. Pub owners Troy Pyett and Carly Hadfield welcomed everyone to their pub and let them know that they have added a selection of scotches to the Lion’s Head drink menu.

Andrea Ryman also spoke while everyone was relaxing at the pub, inviting chamber members to participate in paddling classes over the summer. She also told everyone that Endless Adventures will be celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, and that between Aug. 1 and 15, Endless Adventures will be fundraising with the goal of donating $2000 for Castlegar Search and Rescue.
