No Parking in Front of Liquor Store or Feed Store

Another heads up for this weekend:
The owner of the Bailey Feed & Supply store (next to the Bailey liquor store) is not too psyched on boaters parking their cars, even temporarily, in their lot and will be towing anyone who does.

Please park across the street and then walk your boat across the street to the McGraw Park. Refer to the brochure in the very first post in this thread for the map and instructions regarding where to park and put on.

I guess I know where I'm not getting my future ranch supplies!

AW has put together a survey for you to relay your experiences over the weekend regarding the flows and the event. If you attend Baileyfest please fill out this survey as it will help us negotiate future releases and get them at the right flows.

Hey Ian, I know a bunch of folks have already said it, but getting this release is a HUGE accomplishment. Way to go! I've tried to get some dam(n) releases done around here - unsuccessfully - so much respect! Hope it sets a good precedent for the future.

104F here today, which just adds to my Bailey Blues. Enjoy - wish I could be there!

additional observations:

i too met the owner of the feed store and she was under the impression that her bubble was about to be invaded. as boater's we have an opportunity to set a positive example in this small town. please be respectful and discrete.

also, i met the owner of the four falls property while walking around first falls. she is a very nice gal who doesn't mind boaters using her property to scout/ portage. again though, we should limit our time doing so and keep in mind that we are trespassing.

Regarding trespassing on the four falls land, I doubt it will ever come to this, but its possible that at this point kayakers have been granted an implied easement to portage across that property. Regardless, be respectful.

I have never met you, but hope to some day. Ran Bailey today with a friend and had the time of my life. My first season paddling the V stuff and WOW, that run is amazing. Only bummer, my GoPro battery was dead by the time I get home, so I have to wait till tommorrow to view the footage.
Thanks again Ian for all your hard work.
PS, love your Gumby boat.

I didn't make any of the group festivities on Saturday, but did get to boat on Sunday...Thanks Ian, it was nice to have a scheduled release and to see so many other boaters out there. Well done.
