Boaters-please post your ideas / opinion
The Town of Breckenridge is organizing a white water festival for the Breckenridge playpark in late June. Given the design of the park isn't too friendly for a freestyle event, we are looking at holding more of a boating family oriented festival, but still want to make it something a crew of whitewater boaters would enjoy. So far we've come up with ideas for a boater cross, downriver race with portaging, kid-create-a-craft (kids build a boat to float down a hole or two), if it floats paddle it, tubing race... There will be free beer, hopefully music, peraps a mid season kayak swap, whitewater rescue demo's, boat demos...
If you have any ideas on what might work to make this a festival for all paddlers (new to semi-pro), please let us know. We are designing this event to further unite the kayaking community and show that the Breck park can be used for other events than rodeo.
