Wires are tough. They are on private land. Will see what we can do

Just got word from Marty that Jackson Kayak is donating a 2015 Zen boat for the supermax showdown foamie race. Winner will get boat size of choice. The last guy that won the foamie race boat proceeded to route the Stikine in it... your results may vary.

Any rough ideas on tunnel flows for the weekend? I understand specific numbers won't be known until day before or so, but just wondering if DW has given any indication at all of a range? Hoping that the lack of releases so far this summer bodes well for some bigger numbers!

No exact flows. We have had 350-430 in the past and I suspect it will be somewhere in that range.

My wife and I were thinking about droving out and finding a good spot to be spectators. Does anyone have good spots for beginners to watch the action?

Hey Bonker... no real good spots to watch the action. The bailey run is away from the road and you have to hike 3+ miles in from either side while tresspassing to get to the rapids. Only legal option is to hike in from a side trail down to crossons, cross the river (no bridge, it fell down), and hike upstream.

You can come be a part of the camp party action and witness the glory of the supermax showdown foamie creek race sat night. Big party and lots of fun.

I kinda thought that was the dealio. I guess it's going to be years before I see the action at Baileyfest. Party sounds good though!

Bonker, Since Bailey will be running, Foxton will be running too. Even if you're not up to the Foxy Class III's there's some nice Class II stretches to paddle on in a really fine looking canyon. Just a thought.
