The North American Junior Olympics Whitewater Championships & US Cup Series are about to start. Next week at Clear Creek Whitewater Park in Golden, CO will mark the start of an annual stellar event to be held here in Colorado on the Front Range. This event puts us on the national stage for paddling excellence, and even on the world stage. How well we do with this event will determine our future success.
The hosting organization, Front Range Paddling Association (FRPA) does need financial assistance to help with expenditures for the games, but even more so need your commitment
to come to the games, and even participate
in the games (there are non-junior events and catagories that are open to all)
We encourage you as paddlers to show your support for the young athletes (some as young as 6 years old) by coming to cheer them on and helping them continue the legacy and stewardship of our chosen sport.
We are also still in need of a few more volunteers for: Safety, Food Vendors, and Musicians(bands...KBPI will be providing talent and sound reinforcement).
Some of the paddling talent we will have on hand are: Eric Jackson, Sam Drevo, (I think Hobie too, correct me if I am wrong, Hobie), Kent Ford, and others.
The schedule for the events are at: http://whitewaterracing.org/2007joeventscal.htm
So please come out and join us in celebrating the sport, the river, the life.
