Hey guys and gals, Boulder County Parks and Open space has acquired quite a bit of land since the floods. Some of this land stretches across boated runs. BCOPS has "signaled" that they will NOT allow boating to occur any longer on these stretches of river. In some stretches BCPOS has actually used fencing and in others citations are possible as well as allowing debris such as river wide strainers to remain across the channel and be a potential life safety hazard and by proxy diminishing the ability to paddle without walking across private land.
Thats the short story.
What I need is support that you as front range boaters in Boulder County oppose BCPOS stance on not allowing safe boating through runnable stretches of water. If you would just type below.... "I support your efforts" I can then document that much of the boating community opposes any stance minimizing the safe boating of rivers in creeks that are owned by BCPOS. Lower South St Vrain, Some stretches of Boulder creek, Some areas of the St Vrain below Lyons and possibly some stretches along the NSV.
If you don't know who I am I'm sure someone on here can vouch that this is a legitimate request and for the good of our sport as boaters.
