Blackrock Race Cancellation

With great sadness I must announce that the 2008 Eddyflower Blackrock Race has been canceled. Although we would have loved to have hosted the race this year, the rapid growth and incredible success of the Vertical Challenge has left us short of the resources to organize and host the race.

We will definitely be hosting the race next year so stay tuned. In the mean time see you all at the Vertical Challenge Party.

I'm a black rock noob after a couple runs but sounds fun.

Here are the rules we used last year if your interested in keeping a similiar format...

Two person teams.
Plastic boats only.
Boat lengths are 9'0" and under.
Start times are determined by registration time.
Teams will compete in 2 minute intervals.
Teamís must stay within a 50-foot of one another or are subject to disqualification. Safety first!
The clock at the finish line will stop when both kayakerís body crosses the finish line (just below Riga Mortis rapid).
If you swim across the finish line there is a 50 second time penalty.
No intentional person-to-person contact or paddle to person contact is allowed.

I would consider racing it if the level looks ok. My personal minimum for that run is 4 ft on the rock.

You two want it. Come and get it. The rock is hovering just below 4ft. as we speak. I DARE either of you to make the pilgrimage and the boys will show you down. Christian - I doubt you've run anything as pushy as Upper Narrows at this flow before in your life. And Cutch, maybe you should wait until it's at race levels before you make your no scout, virgin run as promised. Things happen pretty fast at 4ft... especially in that long rapid at the bottom.
