Gore Race-August 23rd & 24th
The BLM would like to send condolences out to Beth's friends and family.
***NOTE*** GORE RACE WILL HAPPEN ON SUNDAY THIS YEAR WITH THE SUP RACE ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON
The Gore Race is scheduled to start with the SUP race on Saturday at 3pm at Pumphouse, Launch 3. Sunday is the main race through Gore Canyon. There are some closures everyone needs to be aware of.
*Launch 3 area, group campsites, and individual sites south of Launch 3 at Pumphouse will be closed to the general public starting at 1 pm on Friday, August 22rd and will closed until 1 pm on Monday, August 25th. These areas are reserved for Gore Race participants and spectators.
*Confluence Road (Gore Canyon put-in) will be closed just past the little temporary parking/take-out for the Blue River from 9 am to 1 pm on Sunday, August 24th.
Everyone must pay $5 per vehicle per day (Friday-Monday). Campsites are $10 per night Friday and Sunday night. All campers on Saturday night only need to pay $1 per person (this money contributes to the assigned site fee paid by Lakota Guides). Please write "Gore Race" on all fee envelopes. There is an additional fee station near Launch 3 before you enter the lower camping area.
The river will be VERY busy from Pumphouse down to Two Bridges and beyond (we are expecting many private boaters to move downriver this weekend to avoid these events).
All boat launches will be more crowed that usual and everyone needs to work together to make it work. We will have all our staff out but it is a big river and we won't be able to be everywhere when needed. We appreciate you all helping us to make it a great weekend for everyone!
Please contact me with questions or concerns.
