Junior Olympics moved?

I just caught wind that the Junior Olympics have been moved from the Golden Play Park to the Lyons Play park. I post this because apparently not many people have been notified of this. If anyone has any information please do post here since this is rather an important event for our youth paddlers.

On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.

Junior Olympic Event now in Lyons

Post per an email from one of the event directors:

Dear Friends,

After some discussion and negotiation, it has been decided that the Junior Olympics will be in Lyons at Meadow Park and the Black Bear Hole (across from the Black Bear Inn). Please note that both these venues are different from the October Hole.

The rough schedule is as follows: Thursday Sprint Slalom at Meadow Park, Friday Sladeo (rodeo/slalom) at Meadow Park, Saturday Rodeo at the Black Bear Hole, Sunday Downriver from Apple Valley Bridge to the Black Bear Hole, Monday Slalom first two runs, Tuesday Slalom final.

This is a complex event and you can still register on line at 2011 North American Whitewater Junior Olympics - Golden Colorado July 14-20, 2011 Please note that the schedule and information on the website will change due to the change of venues.

There will also be registration the day before the slalom events.

There will be open practice at Meadow Park and the Black Bear Hole starting tomorrow. The Meadow Park course is running quite briskly, and this should be an exciting, fun venue for this event. This course is faster and higher volume than when we raced in Golden in May, but it is way more friendly than the FIBArk and Golden course.

We will also be needing volunteers for the slalom events, and if you are interested in helping out and you are available on one or more of those days, please contact me.

I apologize for how late this coordinating email is, but I I believe this will be a fun event.

All Best Wishes

Nate Lord

Junior Olympics has been moved due to high water

Out of concern for safety for the boaters, we have moved 2011 North American Whitewater Junior Olympics from Clear Creek Whitewater Park to Lyons.

The excessive snowpack and early arrival of the normally late summer monsoon rains has kept Clear Creek far too high for a safe festival. The safety of the kids is paramount.

For those of you whom have registered, the events will go on with some schedule changes. The Town of Lyons has been super gracious in helping accommodate the change of venue.

For those of you that have volunteered your time to help with this event, we're only moving up the road!

One thing of note, there will at some point a "Coaching the Coaches" session that will be hosted by the former US Team coach, Cathy Hearn & Brendan Curson (a Canadian boating and coaching powerhouse), this will be very much worth your time if you are someone who coaches paddlers, or are interested in coaching paddlers.
