Deep Sea Fishing
There is nothing like a sea breeze blowing in your face while telling fish stories about the one that got away. This year Oregon PVA chartered the “Tackel Buster” at Depoe Bay so the members have the opportunity to go Deep Sea fishing and limit out on crab. The boat is fully accessible with a 30 inch manual chair limit.
Call the office today to reserve your spot on one or all of our four trips at 503-362-7998.
Oregon PVA has sponsored the annual Wheelchair Basketball Invitational each year in Salem, Oregon. Normally the weekend of Martin Luther King, Jr weekend of January, NWBA DIII teams from the Northwest meet together to compete, and the Junior division is represented as well.
