The Golden Community Kayak Rodeo Series was a smashing success. In 2008, we put the 'unity' in the 'Community' of kayaking and local businesses. With a huge spectator turn out and an increase in community businesses partnering with us, we expect an even bigger and better series next year. Watch the video from the Denver Post here:

Find the results and photos here:
The kayak from Confluence Kayaks went to: Sarah Dodge
The kayak from Dagger / WaveSport went to: Christine Clark
The paddle went to: Matt Ryan
The winners won their prizes by finishing at the top of their division then by random drawing.
So everyone needs to come out and compete next year and give yourselves a shot at some great prizes! Thanks to Lori Kingsbury for getting the majority of the restaurants (and lingerie shop) to partner with us this year along with a myriad of organizational tasks. The same thanks goes to Christy Mullins for her admin endeavors too! And special thanks for
help from Laura Baumgartner, Laurie Maciag, Megan Laire, and Len Eckstein for doing all the graphic work including the fantastic, welded, river rock trophies! Colorado Whitewater deserves thanks for giving us additional resources too.
So there's a lot more water left to paddle so get to your local shop get your gear, and then if you are hungry, need hardware, lingerie, pet products, etc. visit our sponsors below.

Even though Joint Juice couldn't make it with a tent, just about everyone got to try their product over a 3 week period!
Next year we'd like to partner with even more sponsors from the local community contributing products and samples or their wares. So if you have any suggestions, let us know and SYOTR! -- Greg Kyle
