The Old Farmer's Almanac lists the traditional timing of the Dog Days of Summer as the 40 days beginning July 3 and ending August 11.  So it must be time for our Annual Family Day!  Please join us on Saturday, August 11 for our first COMS Float the River and Picnic Family Day.

You can float the Deschutes River down to McKay Park.  Start floating anytime.  Put in at Riverbend Park (799 SW Columbia St, Bend 97702) and float down to McKay Park (166 Southwest Shevlin Hixon Drive, Bend 97702); just after the Bend Whitewater Park. (Directions). Pull out and picnic in the park with COMS.  Don’t want to float?  That’s OK, join us for a traditional family Barbeque including hot dogs, hamburgers, salads, beer, soft drinks.  DaKine Grindz will be there with Shaved Hawaiian ice for all.  Bring the kids and enjoy the day. Picnic from 1-4 pm.
