Thanks to many peoples help and involvement, the Golden Community Rodeo Series will be held for its third consecutive year on Clear Creek in Golden, CO.
June 15 (final event with a party and awards)
Times: The events start at 5:30 (registration at 5:00pm).
Cost: $25 (one-time fee for all either one or all four rodeos)
**This is the first year there is an entry fee, thanks to some new regulations by the City of Golden
more specifically, we have to have insurance this year, and the Colorado Whitewater Association has graciously agreed to lend us theirs. Each participant has to pay the $25 fee to be insured and in addition, each person who signs up will get a free CWWA membership, a free Wahoos Meal Certificate, a Croakie from LifeLink Int., and a cam strap from Mountain Miser
plus, just about everyone wins a prize! So, not only is your money staying the pool of river conservation, recreation, and access you also get some pretty good door prizes!**
**If youre already a CWWA member, then your entry fee is waived and yes, you still get the gifts! For more info check out their website at www.coloradowhitewater.org.**
What hasnt changed is our mission: to provide a low-key event where even the newest of all rodeo boaters will feel comfortable. Our hope is that those who are even the slightest bit curious about rodeo boating will attend, and enter! Even if you dont want to enter, come out to cheer on our local heroes (even spectators win prizes!).
We will again give out prizes this year for lots of fun categories like best swim, burliest boater, best diva boater, and best old school move in addition to prizes for 1st-3rd place finishers in the categories of Sport, Intermediate, Expert, and Masters. If we can get any to enter, well also give prizes this year to open boaters. We hope to have a foamies event at one rodeo as well
well post each week to let you know which categories well give prizes for that week. And wait until you see these trophies!
This year, prizes are coming from
Kelty, Paddler Magazine, Bolder Boulder, Paradise Rock Gym, Chaco, Arapahoe Basin, Patagonia, Keen Footwear, Wahoos, Mountain Miser, Alpenglow, Golden River Sports, Wavesport, DDeli, Tommyknockers, CWWA, LifeLink International, Wildwasser/Prijon, Blue Canyon Bar, Optic Nerve Eyeglasses, and more!
Special thanks to Golden Awards & Engraving for donating engraving for the trophies and Casanova Design and Construction, Inc. for paying our application fees!
