This year, Colorado Whitewater has stepped up to run the event with help from Ian Foley. The club does a lot of great things for beginning boaters and decided that this event is a great way to serve a different segment of the boating community. I joined the board of CW this year and will be putting the event together with some help from the board and, of course, Ian.

Ian created one of the better paddling parties out there and its important that we keep it going.

So keep your fingers crossed that Denver Water will deliver and keep that weekend open. As Ian has said so many times before, TURN ON THE TUNNEL!!

You only get to know about Baileyfest now if you're on Facebook. Here's a copy / paste:

Sponsored by Oskar Blues and Jackson Kayak and with guaranteed flows from Denver Water, BaileyFest is back in business!

Camping will be at the Berger property where it has been in years past (see GPS coordinates above) and the takeout party will be at Pine Valley Ranch Open Space ranch from 3-6 PM on Sat Aug 13th.

Cost: $40 Cash Only. This includes beer, food at the takeout party, riverside camping and entry into a raffle to win a free Jackson boat!

Per the landowners request, please leave dogs at home. Anyone showing up to the campsite with dogs will be turned away.

Also, while Bailey is really high quality IV+/V- paddling, Foxton (III-IV) will also have water and be closeby. Waterton Gorge (class III) will also be an option.

Big thanks to Colorado Whitewater for hosting this event!

* there will be no food trucks this year at the campsite. Plan accordingly.
**again NO DOGS. The landowner has been fantastic to us, but this is his one rule and we have to stick by it or risk losing this spot in future years

Thanks, Kevin. I dropped the ball on promoting on The Buzz. Sorry about that. Also, the guys at Denver Water confirmed that the plan is to release 300-350cfs out of Roberts Tunnel Friday through Sunday, which should give us nicely padded flows just over 400cfs.

I wanted to clarify the text I'd posted. Denver does not offer a 100% guarantee of the flows indicated. The flows are an estimate and could be reduced further if heavy rains or other factors beyond their control prevent them from executing the desired release.
