The Colorado raft racing season is starting up on Friday May 24th, racing starts at 6pm, in BV for Paddlefest. No racing experience...no problem. This is a great event to get a taste of what raft racing is all about. This is an all out head to head sprint for 3-4 minutes through the BV Whitewater Park, boats and shuttle will be supplied by The Adventure Company and teams will be made by drawing numbers, so all you need is a PFD and a paddle to compete. Paddlefest will be in full swing with music, food, beer and all kinds of paddling so come out and compete and get to know some fellow paddlers. This race will be a double elimination bracket with the winners advancing to the next round. Register at South Main's grass field at 5:30pm, Only $10 per person. All proceeds go to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Chaffee County. More info at CKS PaddleFest | May 24-26 2013 - Kicking off the paddling season!
