As part of the 6th annual Colorado River Yagatta Regatta there will be a low key experts-only "bro rodeo" at the Glenwood Springs Whitewater Park on Saturday May 24th. The current water level is 9,500 cfs and the wave is still far from washing out, but since nobody is exactly sure what to expect from this brand new wave, we remind everyone to keep in mind that conditions could become unfavorable for an event. The river has been rising about 1,000 cfs each day and it is hard to predict what flows will be like on Saturday.
Also a part of the Yagatta Regatta is there will be a beer garden at Two Rivers Park, live music, and other family-friendly activities. All proceeds from the event benefit Operation Vacation, which provides Colorado vacations to servicemen and women returning home from Iraq.
This year's kayak event will be real low key and unoffical. In the future we plan to expand and officalize this event.
