Just head on up, the race is going on so it'll be you and a few hundred of your closest friends on Saturday. Please stay out of the way of the racers if you go down the river. If I was new I'd hit the party on Saturday and find some folks to run with on Sunday or go to Pumphouse campground tonight, should be lots of folks around. It's a real good time (Gore, the race, the party).
P.S. If you're not boating next weekend, 8/27-28, check out the Wine and Jazz Fest at Keystone.
