Colorado River Weekend
Fri Sep 9, 2011 12:00 AM - Sun Sep 11, 2011 12:00 AM
Colorado River Weekend, September 9-11
ORGANIZER: Leslie Tyson, firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please include CW Colorado Weekend in the subject line.
CAMPING: Pumphouse BLM campsite, near Kremmling, approximately 10 miles from Highway 9 on Grand County #1 (Trough Road). From Kremmling, take Hwy 9 south about 1 mile to Grand County #1 (Trough Road). Go west on Grand County #1 (Trough Road) for 10 miles, turn right onto Pumphouse access road. There is a fee of $3 per day, payable on entry. There will be a basket for donations to contribute to the cost for the group camping spots.
CRUISES: There is plenty of beginner-level water in the vicinity, including the Pumphouse run which starts at the campsite boat ramp. More confident boaters are encouraged to volunteer to lead and/or sweep. This is a great change to get your sweeping or leading feet wet! Other boating opportunities include the Lower Blue and Glenwood Canyon (although the latter is, admittedly, a bit of a drive)
GROUP POTLUCK DINNER on Saturday Evening: By now you know the drill, and you just KNOW that your fellow boaters will be hungry after a day on the river. Here's our final chance to put together a spontaneous, unplanned, yet well-balanced, delicious and nutritious feast that will be remembered during the long dark nights of coming winter. (No pressure, now!) Remember to bring serving utensils, and your own plate and eating accessories. Trash bags will be provided. Anyone with a raft table/roller table, please throw it in your gear if we need it. Don't forget your camp chairs!!!
Come one, come all, and help us round off the summer boating season in style!
