Feather Festival

Anyone been?

I'm going to be in Oregon around that time (last weekend of Sept or so, check AW page for exact dates) and am curious if anyone has any beta?

Kinda stuff I'm interested in... are the releases a pretty fun level? How crowded is the whole ordeal? Seems like with Sac and San Fran so close it could be pretty crazy.

Anyone else thinking of going? Cheers.

Feather fest is a good time. Tight, technical, granite boulder garden, people paddling down river at slightly faster speeds. A good time for all the Cali Creekers to regroup and talk about the previous year.

Probably close in size to Bailey, not crowded for CO. Far less paddlers in SF and Sac than Denver.

I have been once and it is super fun.

Mellow scene with a bunch of really good boaters.

Studytime, I paddled a shredder and it was a good time, there is one rapid that the other bigger rafts lined as it is pretty tight and bony, I ran it sort of. If you consider sliding down it sideways and getting hung up and bouncing around till I almost downstream flipped, running then it goes.

Have fun.

thanks for the responses

I've always heard great things about the run... guess it's time to go see it for myself!
