OBJ race?

I recently heard from a very reputable source that the race may be coming up very soon, can anyone verify this or is it going to be kept a secret?

I heard a completely unsubstantiated rumor that it may happen this weekend. I was surprised because I also heard they had sponsors and were making a big deal out of the event so I can't believe I hadn't heard anything yet. Anyone else have more reliable info?

No Secret. Oh Be Joyful Giant Slalom Race, Saturday, June 21st, 8 AM, registration at the take-out! This is going to be one sik daddy race! If you haven't been following the Giant Slalom Race series than you have been missing some seriously rad sheet.

Saturday: Downriver Race - straight timed event. Fastest paddler through the course

Sunday: Giant Slalom Race - timed slalom event. Fastest paddler through the gates staged on a steep creek or river i.e. OBJ (making it "giant").

Winner is determined by combined scores from both races. Scores are calculated as a percentage of the winners time. This is the Rocky Mountain qualifier for the championships which will be on the Green in North Carolina.

Gates on OBJ. Sounds sweet to me!

For more info go to LVM TV

Any idea how long this will take each day? I was thinking on getting on OB this weekend but don't really want to do a race on it.
