Adam Barron Memorial Creek Race... Important info... IT'S ON!!!!

Alrighty folks... the 2011 Adam Barron Memorial Creek race is set to have the best flows of any year yet! We are super stoked to announce that the Narrows Course is right in the range of perfect . Reports from the locals are that it's a perfect filled in level, but not too pushy and great for a race. As most of the front range knows, last year... let's just say it was a bit too spicy and required us to move the race upstream a bit. There is very little concern with levels going too high for the Narrows course at the moment and although everything is subject to flows, this cool day today and the fact that its gonna be in the low 80's over the weekend will most likely mean that the Narrows of SSV will be the course!!!

The Lyons Outdoor games is really something special of a festival. For those that have yet to come out, please plan on it. Those that have been here in years past fully understand the laid back scene, the fantastic competitions, the great beer from Oskars and with 80 degree temps and no rain in the forecast... it's gonna be a fantastic place to bring the family. There is awesome live music at night, great food and plenty to watch and get involved with...

Fire it up!

Forgot to mention... the race starts at 10am. For any of the racers... Please be sure to be at the racers meeting at 9am sharp! This race meeting is critical since we discuss the rules, safety and make sure the race starts on time.

I sure hope all the local SSV crowd is there in support of this awesome race. It's a ton of fun, provides some serious bragging rights, and bottom line, the Lyons community does this because us locals helped build it... Not much money making in it for them... it's really about good times, good beer, and great paddling!

Jens... nope. I guess there wasn't enough purse for him to stick around after TEVA. Unfortunate, as he has won 3 Adam Barron Memorial Creek races now, but... little old Lyons really focus's more on a fantastic event with live music, great food/Beer and does as good as we can to make sure the athletes have a healthy winning to keep them stoked.

Yes, the race is Saturday at 10 am. Great place to watch darn near the whole race from one spot. Please be sure to have a vest and rope with you on at all times if you are near the river.

Thanks!

I hate to miss out on the fun this weekend in Lyons!!!!! It was fun watching the racers motor through last year!!! The party at OBs was a riot too! My nursing clinicals have me in the hospital both sat and sun so I won't be able to partake this year, but wish everyone a fun and safe time!
Also, it looks like you have a full ticket for the creek boat clinics - awesome - i really really really wish I get in on that. Oh well, next year. Have FUN!!
