Thursday, July 26 "Wine and Hops" agricultural tour: Western Idaho has long been known for production of seed crops such as alfalfa, sweet corn, onions and carrots that make their way to fields around the world. More recently, the area has become known for producing world-class wines and bountiful crops of hops used in brewing beer. Tour stops will include lunch at a local winery. Rumor has it that during its 2018 Famous Idaho Potato Tour helping raise awareness, funds and food for non-profit organizations, the Big Idaho Potato Truck also will be attending the PAA meeting in Boise. Other Activities Sunday activities on your own include fishing, rafting, golfing and, for graduate students, an escape room team- building exercise. On Monday evening, you can attend a Boise Hawks baseball game or the Pedals and Pints bike tour of downtown Boise. On Thursday, as an alternative to the ag tour, whitewater rafting on the Payette River is offered with a professional guide. Also included as part of the meeting is an accompanying person's program including a day trip to Payette Lake near McCall, Idaho.
