FC Boaters-Huge Bummer; But we will forge on!

Unfortunately, GOCO turned our recent grant application down for the Fort Collins Downtown Riverpark, citing the recent touchy political atmosphere surrounding recreational water rights. Huge bummer.

It's all right, though. We currently have about $60k in hand from the Downtown Development Authority, New Belgium Brewing, Horner Painting and Kwal Paints, Susan and Bill Merriam (Boathenge), Freeflow premiere, community silent auction fundraiser, and other sources. We also have in-kind donations including labor from the youth conservation corp and materials and/or (I forget which at this hour) labor from Lidstone and Associates.

We are still psyched on our alternative funding options and after a month off, are all re-energized to get on with more grant applications. Keep posted for more updates or call Brian, Tye or Matt at the Mountain Shop and Poudre River Kayak and Canoe for more info.

On another, totally unrelated note, we still have spots left in our Babes in Boats Playboating 1 Clinic for Saturday. Call Friday morning for registration info.

Peace Out,
