Do competitors need to be in their boats when crossing the finish line?

Paul, you have got to stop bumping this post... more exposure means more competitors means less chance of me winning.

change of venue?

Since Clear Creek has dropped to boat shredding levels, and will probably be below 400 by Saturday, why don't we change the location. We can change the event name to the Club Bailey Shootout. Same rules basically apply. Make it top to bottom, and therefore teams will be rewarded if they run and stomp the big ones. Teams can choose to portage anything, but must race the portage. The level should be 500+ to ensure a healthy flow. Safety is not included in the race, so if you think you'll need a rescue you shouldn't race. If you swim you drink a booty. Bring $10 CASH per person ($20 per team) and all of the money will be thrown in the proverbial pot. The winning team will receive ALL of the cash.

I'm assuming we could run this with the same amount of volunteers? Remember, safety is provided only by your paddling partner.

Spectators should put-on before noon.

Who's in?

I thought we decided on the Club Baileys Showdown? Anyway, um ya, like Cutchen McMuffin said, Blackrock is going to be cracking boats left and right and Bailey is at a fine flow all of teh sudden, so I mean why not a little change-up??? We'll even throw in a copy of the new testament for each of the team members in second place. Not trying to derail this whole event... but I mean charging down Bailey at a respectable flow and just having to give her when you usually eddy out and hem and haw over First Falls and SuperMax, now that is a race. Or we could race Big South. I don;t know.
