The Gore Canyon Race is back. Saturday August 16, 2008.
Lisa Reeder at Timberline Tours has organized the necessary permits from the BLM and has been working with the Kremmling Chamber of Commerce to organize a festival in the Kremmling town center.
Go to www.gorecanyon.com
for details and registration forms.
We (myself and Charlie Ebel) are also seeking paddlers to help with race day safety. Any paddlers (rafters or kayakers) who are interested in helping with safety boating please post here, PM me, or contact me at [email protected]
or (970) 390 5076. We (and I assume most of the racers) prefer paddlers with some medical and/or swiftwater rescue/safety boating experience. As always, there is not be be anyone walking on the railroad tracks. All parties interested in providing race day safety support will need to be able to get down the canyon on the river. You will need to have your own kayak or raft (or C1 or canoe), throwbag, whistle, knife, small first aid kit, (and pin kit if you have one), and the knowledge and ability to use this equipment. I will post further details as I get them.
P.S. Admins, can we make this sticky?
