I know there will be some complaints about this post, but it has to be posted nonetheless.
NOTICE TO BOATERS, TUBERS, FISHERMEN & FISHERWOMEN
From June 28th, 2007 through July 8th, 2007, between the hours of 8:00am and 5pm, the North American Junior Olympics Whitewater Championships will be taking place at the Clear Creek Whitewater Park, located in Golden CO.
There will be hundreds of participating paddlers (mostly young paddlers) training and competing dur the course of these games. A great proportion of these paddlers have traveled from other countries to compete, and as such, there are language barriers.
Due to safety and security concerns with our foreign athletes, we ask all of you whom are not participating in these games to remain acutely aware of racers in the water and to move aside in a feature when they are coming down the course during their training runs.
During actual competition, you may be asked by safety staff to remove yourself from the course if deemed a hazard to competing racers, or to move further down the river, or to the side of the river. The last thing we want are collisions happening on the water.
I know we all have to share the river, but this is a once a year event that will have major remifications for future editions of it if we do not help each other out here.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly via PM on here, email, or phone.
