Boulder Creek Community Float, Fri May 2, 5pm

The plan is to meet at Eben Fine Park at 5pm on Friday. Some folks may want to paddle down from four mile. Or put in above the slalom course. But let's all meet creek side somewhere in the middle of the park (between the two pedestrian bridges) at 5 pm.

Gary is going to park his school bus/trailer at Fate Brewery (old Jose Muldoon's) at 38th and Arapahoe. It’ll hold 30+ people and boats. After we shuttle up at end of run then maybe reconvene somewhere for beers. Fortunately weather is improving with high Friday in 70s.

Hope to see everyone there. Paul.

I wonder if we can talk Gary into an earlier bus ride up? Maybe meet at Fate around say 4 and get dropped at 4 mile, then hang around the park before floating down.

Bus could turn around at four mile. People who wanted to see the canyon from the road and not float it could hop out at the mouth of the canyon.

This way at least some personal vehicles would be at the bottom.

I'd be hard pressed to want to float to 38th and then wait around for 30 some random people to finish up at a brewery, where some people will undoubtably want to hand out.

Bus shuttle up sounds like a good idea. Will email Gary about this and confirm. Figured some people might want to shuttle w/ personal cars also.

OK, how about this. Shuttle bus will leave Fate at 4pm and can drop people as high as four mile.

Then bus will park at Fate to shuttle folks up after the run.
