At least we spelled Rendezvous correct Thanks for pointing that out. We will note that going forward.

This sounds like a great event. It's too bad you couldn't make it a little futher south to the annual Rio Grande Mother's Day River Fest. It's an annual event every Mother's Day weekend with a great grassroots following that would be a great fit for DownRiver. Hope you would consider coming down this way next season. Cheers and hope you have a great event

We will be driving down and setting up Friday, not sure if we will have boats out that day. Give me a ring at the store and I will see what we can work out.

You will not need to register if you are not camping. Looks like it maybe beneficial to get a demo list going.

I'm looking for an R2 Partner for Friday. Anyone interested? I have a 9Ft. boat or we can use something else.

Thanks again DRE for putting this event on - I'm bringing a small crew and we're really excited to paddle spring runoff with a big crowd!

We're hoping to paddle Numbers or Brown's in the Sabertooth on Saturday. I'll have my Aire Force there too if any of your DRE guys or girls want to try it out.

http://downriverequip.com/events

Looking forward to a great weekend.

Down River Rendezvous on the Ark

May 9th - 11th (bring mom for a memorable Mother's Day weekend!)

Free Camping Friday and Saturday night at River Runners

Reservations for free camping are closed, but please join us for the shuttles, demos and evening entertainment. Drop us a line for suggestions on alternative camping around Buena Vista. If you have a confirmed camping reservation, check in will start at 5:00 on Friday. Please keep in mind this is group style camping so your tent location will be right next to other campers.

Free Shuttles on Saturday and Sunday

Through River Runners, DRE will be providing shuttles for Brown's Canyon and the BV to River Runners stretch on Saturday and Sunday. There will be details about these shuttles Friday and Saturday nights at the Riverside Grill (at River Runners). These shuttles will be available for everyone, whether camping with us or not. The plan for the Brown's shuttle is to bring drivers from their vehicles at the take out back to River Runners in the morning. The Buena Vista to River Runners shuttle will bring drivers back to their vehicles at the BV put-in in the afternoon. These shuttles are for drivers only, every group will need to be able to transport their boats, gear and people. Exact times for these shuttles will be posted at the Riverside Grill each evening.

Demo Boats will be available from Aire, Rocky Mtn Rafts and Hyside

There will be a limited number of demo boats that cam be reserved on a first come, first served basis. Sign up for the demos will be available at the Riverside Grill on Friday and Saturday night starting at 5:00. You will need to leave a driver's license, credit card and signed liability form with us before taking a demo boat. Boats will need to be returned no later than 4:00 each day. We are only providing boats, everyone should have their own paddles, pfds, clothing, throwbags, etc. Please don't depend on demo boats to get on the river, bring your own gear in case all the demos are taken.

Food & Beverage

Our host, River Runners, will have the Riverside Bar & Grill open in the evenings where you can buy food and drinks. Down River is providing on keg each night at the grill. You should plan to make your own arrangements for breakfast and lunch.

Entertainment in the Evenings

If you play an instrument or sing, we invite you to participate if you'd like to.
