I just watched the Colo Springs 5/30 news and as the reporter is stating that the dogs may have found a scent what looks like around #7 he did state that if (talking to the audience) that if a kayaker tells you to get off the river them please listen. Maybe this will give us credit to the general public.

On another sad note, the body of a 14 yr old boy was found in the Springs in a culvert today. It assumed he played in the creek with a friend (who is still missing) during the rain and floods yesterday.

bastard son of elvis (great name) has a good point about ropes at play parks. In 2003 we were on Boulder Creek PP and a newley developed hole became a keeper at 700 cfs. There was more than one bag trhown that day. At Golden PP on Sunday the water was up and the tubers were abound and had a few rescues of tubers and kayakers, equipment etc. Luckliy I had by little extra little bag but I didn't have my good big throw bag or my rescue vest. I had to fumble around to fing my whistle to confirm a party was ok up stream. I'll be bringing both to the PP's all the time.
