The 4th Annual Gunnison Rodeo will be held from 6/24-6/25 during the Colorado Adventure Sports Fest. This event is at the Gunnison Whitewater Park, just west of town at Twin Bridges. Whitewater events include: freestyle, downriver kayak race, raft races, and and yes, a foamie comp. Here's a link to the full schedule of events:
Don't miss Saturday night's New Belgium Rockstar Pary at Timbers featuring Hair Force One and Eddy Bacon and the Shagnastys....always a fun a rowdy time.
As the former freestyle coordinator, now Salida local, I have enjoyed working with Three Rivers, the Gunnison Valley Paddle Club, and Western State over the years to make the Gunny Fest happen. Also, there are tons of contributors and supporters who have played a huge role...thanks.
Matty P, from Three Rivers now has the torch as the coordinator and will make sure the whitewater events run smoothly this year. He has done a great job to make things happen with the Fest and Gunnison Valley Paddle Club over the years. Not to mention being a solid guy to paddle with from OBJ to the Laja....Gracias El Ormega!
I'll be fired up to see y'all this weekend!
Any updates from Gunny locals on the play park?
