Countdown to Bailey Fest 2013!

T minus 147 days and counting til...

Bailey Fest 2013!!!

Dates for this year are August 9-11, 2013.

Same great camp site, same fun flows, takeout party, supermax showdown foamie race, tons of beer... its gonna be a great time.

We had a great turnout last year, and I hope to see you all this year.

One of the big surprises for me last year were the number of rafters stepping up and cleaning Supermax. Props! Looking forward to seeing the rafters and riverboarders in the supermax spectacle this year.

I'm working on updating the website, poster, sponsors etc for this year, so keep an eye out.

Chase's video from last year will help you relive the glory and get you fired up for this year.

Who will be the Supermax Showdown Champ this year?

Yours truly,
Tunnel Turner On-er

On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.

I'm fired up to announce that Keen and Smith Optics have joined up as 2013 Bailey Fest sponsors! Big thanks to Keen and Smith Optics for their support.

Keen has donated a bunch of free shoe cards. Some will be used for the supermax showdown prizes, and some will be used for volunteer rewards.

Smith Optics has donated a bunch of shades, and they will be prizes and volunteer rewards as well.

Volunteers... I will need your help as we get closer to the event. I've got some great goodies to hook you up with for your efforts, so please contact me if you are interested in volunteering. You can PM me on the buzz, or use the contact form on the bailey fest website.

For volunteers...

I need folks Friday AM for set up, Sat AM for camp entrance, Sat at the takeout party, Sat night for the supermax showdown, and sunday for tear down and packing up.

Friday volunteers will be setting up EZ-UPs, lights, banners, signs, foamie course etc.

Sat, I need folks to help with getting waivers signed and event fee ($20 per person) collected as folks come into the campground.

Sat takeout party volunteers will help sell shirts, and help set up food.

Sat supermax showdown volunteers will help with registering people in the race, handing out prizes, and helping run the supermax showdown race.

Sunday I need folks to come back to the campground after paddling and drink beer while we break down and pack up.

If anyone wants to volunteer contact me, and send me your email. I will get you on the volunteer list with more details prior to the event. Volunteers will be rewarded with sponsor donated gear like shoes, shades, shirts, misc kayak gear etc.
