from the organizers:
August 24 - 27, 2006
The organizing is underway, and we have posted updates
on the festival web site. We are adding more prizes and event
This year there will be improved shuttles, a pancake breakfast (Sunday),
plus more draw prizes !
Along with those additions, we will have all the other events: guided trips,
clinics, lessons, canyon walk, herb walk, float trips, boat demos,
sit-on-top trip, Sat night BBQ, DJ, gear swap, etc.
There are festival passes for paddlers and non-paddlers, and events
for everyone - on the river and off.
The on-line registration system, which worked so well last
year, will go live on Tuesday July 25.
You can sign up on-line until Friday August 25, but a reminder to
everyone that all the clinics, lessons, etc. sold out quickly last year,
so register early if you want in on those.
As well, we are offering a $10 early bird registration discount,
so you can save $10 by signing up on-line.
Consider coming out to the whitewater event of the season, and
support the efforts for river conservation.
