CKS presents… King & Queen of the Wave 2010
A fun and friendly event for all the beginner and amateur kayakers to come out and showcase their skills for an attempt at awesome prizes and no one will leave empty handed.
The event will be held at the “Downtown Feature” in the South Main area in Buena Vista, CO on July the 11th (2nd Sunday in July). With an ample spectator seating down at the boat ramp, you will be able to cheer on your favorite upcoming competitors. Registration will begin at 9 am and events start at 10 am. The day will be on a rolling schedule, so be sure to come a bit early to get signed up.
At this competition there will be 3 different events. The day will start at 10 am with the Simple Slalom Race, next up is the fun Freestyle Competition and 12 pm, and finishing up the day is the King & Queen of the Wave Event. Each event will have a $10 fee or you can choose to do all 3 events for $20.
The slalom race is a simple slalom course set up and winner with the best time wins. We decided to shake things up a bit with the Freestyle Competition though. There will be a Preliminary Round with the competitors being judged in the standard fashion. (Scoring card located on next sheet). The top 6 scoring competitors will move on to the Finals where the winning individual will be decided upon by a game of horse style competition. This will be a game of BOOF. Basically if you get all 4 letters you are boof’ed out of the competition.
The last event is the King and Queen of the Wave. There will be heats of 3 competitors that will charge the feature at once. The top individual in the feature will move on to the next round. Once the last male and last female competitor are upright, they will be claimed the victorious winners! It’s going to get crowded in there, so hold on!
We look forward to seeing everyone come out for a fun event out here on the Arkansas River right next to Buena Vista!
