Playing Hookey on Friday Afternoon? Lyons, Boulder,Golden?

I would like to cut out of work early today 5-12-06 and try out one of the front range kayak courses. Anyone willing to join me? I'd like to be there around 3:00.

I'm a beginning boater. I took a roll class and just bought a kayak but otherwise I an reasonably fit and have loads of backountry experience climbing, biking, bc skiing and canoing. This is the year I vowed to finally get into kayaking and I'm desperate to get out today with the weather so warm.

Give me an email:

I would focus on Golden. The whitewater park in Lyons is too low. They just cut back the flow a few days ago and the flow is around 40 cfs. I think the minumum is 60 cfs. The Black Bear Hole and A-Hole are holding steady at 100 cfs, but that would be to short of a run for you.
