Lyons Whitewater Fest 2006

The water is starting to run and its time to get everyone cranked up! Here is a press release on the Lyons festival. Don't worry we won't bomb ya'll with too many posting this time. BTW the October Hole is forming up nicely. Another 100cfs and .....

Lyons will hold its 4th annual Lyons Whitewater Festival on Sunday June 11. This is a great chance to see the “Best in the Nation” compete head-to-head. Several competitions will be held throughout the day with classes from Beginner to Pro to K-9! Vendors will be on hand to help with food, beverages and kayaking. Major sponsors currently include Jackson Kayak, Riot Kayaks, Oskar Blues, the Town of Lyons, Lyons Chamber of Commerce. The events will be held at the Black Bear Hole, which is one of the premier freestyle locations in Colorado. The Black Bear Hole is on the east side of Lyons across from the Black Bear Restaurant.

In addition to the Rodeo, events include 3+ mile DownRiver Race, BoaterCross Relay and a Good Dog Competition (dogs only, no kayaks). The BoaterCross Relay Race is a hybrid of “Boarder X” from the “X-Games” and pits teams against one another in a fierce relay of one to four competitors who paddle the whitewater course, run back to the put-in through an obstacle course, and paddle the course again. The first team to complete 4 full laps is the winner. The Good Dog Competition involves the smartest river dogs on the planet fetching a stick in the river. Merchandise will be awarded to the winners of all events. The entry fee includes all whitewater events $20. The entry fee for the Good Dog Competition is $10.

The schedule for the weekend is:

9am-2 pm Registration
10am-11am Downriver Race
11am-12pm Good Dog Comp
12pm-1pm BoaterCross Relay
1pm-4pm Rodeo Comps
5pm- Awards

Food will be available on site. Camping is available on the infield of the whitewater course in Meadow Park.
