gore canyon Whitewater Festival 2007

I just went to the rapidpulse website and they declared that they are no longer running the gore canyon whitewater festival due to lack of funding. Last year was my first time at the festival.

What will become of the festival. Is there still a chance that it could happen?

I'm sure some other sponsor will pick it up. What would be nice is if it got scaled down to the late 90's formats. But if anyone knows what's up, give up the beta.

gore

TM - not so much a sponsorship thing, though that likely was one contributing factor. Much thanks is owed to Mr. Mark Joffe for his efforts in recent years at Gore.

JK - Yup....see you there. What's the attire? Pink boat and a cape?

GoreFest

Hello,
I have actually been trying to get some information about this. Mark broke the news to me in March. I think the biggest issue we have currently is insurance coverage and the money to pay for it.

My last thread cut me off!
Anyway, I haven't heard anything since then.
Mark, can you let us know if that was the issue?
I have spoken to Mike at New Belgium and they are still planning to help us out. I could probably handle the volunteers, safety, security, beer garden and the vendors if necessary. CW usually covers the permits, beer garden insurance (I think) and liquor licenses and does all of the paperwork (thanks a lot Patrick). Unfortunately, I can't do anything for the competition side of things. Also, we are going to have to deal with the legal stuff. Anyone want to handle that?
I don't see why we can't have GoreFest anyway. Mark did a great job and I'm sad to see him go. We'll definitely have to lose some of the frills, but who needs that anyway?
Feel free to PM me if you have some ideas or comments (please be kind).

Kim

No matter what we are going to go to gore for the third weekend in August. I will volunteer to design the T-shirts.
