Kendrick Childers memorial float June 28&29

I have talked with Kendricks father and the Memorial float for Kendrick Will be over the weekend of June 28 & 29th.

Pumphouse section of the Colorado river.

We have a 14' raft, and i believe brian and sylvia offered an additional 14'er.

I will get a Childers family head count and see how many family members will need a place in a raft.

Anyone attending should post here, and as I contact folks we will have a more accurate head count.

Please post here that you saw this, let us know if you can make it, either way is fine. the date has been set.

thank you all

Bobbuilds,

I'm going to be out of the country on June 25th, so I will have to miss the memorial float I'll be in touch with Ken's dad about a couple of details. I'm glad that you're organizing this, you'll do Kendrick proud.

The Date for Kendrick Childers Memorial will be Sunday June 29th at the Pumphouse section of the Colorado river followed by Chinese food at the Bamboo Garden between 730 and 8pm. Please RSVP here to help the family and I get an idea of who will be able to make it.

Kendrick Childers Memorial Float

June 29th Pumphouse to State bridge

Meet up at Pumphouse between 1030 and 11 AM

Food at Bamboo Garden between 730 and 8 PM

Any people reading this from Staples Aurora Please message Jen or Kim at Staples to RSVP.

Please bring sun screen, food(snacks) and Water. Wear shorts and a summer shirt and bring along a hat and long sleeve shirt as well.

We will have rafts and coolers for everyone once we are on the water.

It will be a fun and safe day for all non-boating people wanting to be on the water. The scenery is beautiful and water is mostly calm.

John Childers will be posting soon with maps and links to the area. If anyone wants to provide a link and map here to the pumphouse launch area. I am not good at posting links.

Safe travels, John and I will be in touch. I am not sure, but they might decide to spread a little of his ashes over time at different rivers. This will be his main memorial float, possibly followed by smaller spreadings later again, I am not too sure.

RSVP for Kendrick's family.

Hi Bob & all,
We have 4 family members for sure for the memorial run near Kremmling on June 29th. At most, an additional 2 might opt in. Some of my local family will me out of state that weekend.

Since I have never been here and I don't see any recent messages about the actual location, can you provide me with directions or an address? I do have GPS so I will be able to find it. Thank you Jeanne Burns

Directions to Pumphouse: Go east on I-70 to Silverthorne. Then go North on CO Hwy 9 toward Kremmling. Shortly before you get to Kremmling, you will see the turn-off to Trough Road (Hwy 1). It will be a left turn. Proceed until you see the sign for Pumphouse Recreational Area. Drive down the road to the river. You will need to bring some cash ($7??) for a day permit. You'll see the pay station on your way down.

the boats once we leave the water. That's an hour-and-half round trip.
