It's 65/75 bucks even if I'm just racing, not camping, etc?

It is. The event is a membership drive and fundraising event to support the efforts of American Whitewater to protect boating on the Upper Colorado. They are currently working to ensure prime flows for the race Saturday. You should at least stay and have some dinner with us!

Yes, it's a bummer we can't hold the event at Pumphouse due to the BLM requiring an expensive environmental assessment. There will be plenty of shuttles from Rancho stopping through Pumphouse on Saturday on the way to the put-in, and then bringing folks back to Rancho that want to participate in the festival.

The registration covers all your costs for the weekend also including live music on Saturday night, insurance, permit charges, and the entire 3-day festival. The goal of the event is to get the Colorado boating community together to celebrate another great summer season and the place we still have to play.

To be clear, it's just $10 if all you do is camp at Rancho Saturday night, right?

Support our rivers, or there will be no rivers left to support! I'm racing, and if I beat you, you are really, really slow.

What time does the kayak race start? I have only been to gore once 5 years ago so would like to get a practice lap in the AM so I don't end up swimming like Tony.
