2012 FIBArk Boater X June 14th 2012

This Years Boater X race will again be at Number 4 rapid in the famous Numbers section of the Arkansas River Thursday June 14th!

This location was chosen again because the great access to the river, cost of the event at Pine Creek and the ability to attract more boaters to participate. The cash prizes will still be there for men's and women's classes and we will keep the small boat rule again. PLAY BOATS ONLY!!

We all know the water is low, but the numbers is a great section with any amount of water. And with some extra water in the works (hopefully) for FIBArk weekend, this is a great way to start the best weekend of the year in the Arkansas Valley.

If you know you will be there and want to help with kayak safety please message me or contact us through the FIBArk website.

Go to www.fibark.net for more information, registration, and all things past present and future as we celebrate the 64th New Belgium FIBArk Festival.

This years music line up is the best in years so do not miss a night of the FREE live music in Riverside park.

And to remember last years event watch this...

and the stunning conclusion here...

Who will be the top local Colorado finisher in this years event? Salidian, BV'er, or perhaps front rangers? I gotta go Salida.

Damn, really? I don't think you can call it the Pine Creek Boater Cross if your going to move it at both high and low water.......what is it now, the Numbers Boater Cross? Shit, I might have to enter...

edit: I see you are now referring to it as just the "boater X race"....
