Chama with kids-lot's of kids

Hey all, we're floating with a full permit this weekend, about half the trip is kids 5-12 years old. here's the thing; we've always done it at around 600 cfs, looks more like 2000 this weekend. what do you think about the chama at 2000 and kids? any thoughts?

Obviously a judgement call. $hit can happen on anything. That being said, the river is still very forgiving. It will pick up a bit on the bottom where it parallels the road. If people were getting cold/scared you'll have a potential bailout option.

As long as I had good adult ratios and didn't have unsupervised kids on the raft, i know I would still do it.
