Lyons "October Hole" Fundraiser! Here is the Scoo

We got a great group of guys working on this project and we are pumped for this fundraiser. Below is the "official press release" on the fundraiser. If anyone wants to donate any product for the fundraiser please PM me or "The Craw", Matt Booth, Scott Young, Ron Schuman, Dan Wrona, Jason Beuasoliel or Jonathan Auerbach. We already have the 404 permit and the ok from the Town of Lyons and Northern Colorao Water Conservancy District (who owns the land). All we need now is some cash to build this thing in the Spring!!! We will post a list of silent auction items at a later date.

Help support play through October!!!

************************************************** ********
SPRING FOR THE RIVER! A NIGHT OF MUSIC, SILENT AUCTION BARGAINS AND CAJUN FOOD TO BENEFIT THE LYONS RIVER PROJECT

February 28, 2006 (Lyons, Colorado) Join the Town of Lyons at Oskar Blues on Sunday, March 19TH for a fundraising party to help build a world-class whitewater feature on the St. Vrain River. The extravaganza will include a huge silent auction of over 100 items, Cajun Buffet with fixins’ from Crawdads to ribs, bluegrass dance music by Whitewater Ramble, and the smokin’-hot movie premier of the Wet House. WhiteWater Ramble's high-octane DanceGrass/Jamgrass is deeply rooted in bluegrass, funk, jazz, swing, rock, reggae, country and blues (see www.whitewaterramble.com ). The Wet-House video (www.wet-house.com ) was selected as the 2006 Best Whitewater Film and Best Paddling Film of 2006. This will be the place to be on March 19th!

The new whitewater feature will be a keystone for a new town park, which will be dedicated to the Town of Lyons later this year. The new feature, “the October Hole”, is the third and final phase of the Lyons River Project. Lyons has completed two projects on the Saint Vrain River in the past 5 years. These whitewater enhancements have greatly improved the community’s personality, recreational and economic opportunities and are highly regarded by kayakers, swimmers and tubers. Lyons is quickly becoming an outdoor mecca for the Front Range. The completion of the “October Hole” will solidify Lyons as a destination for whitewater enthusiast giving it the longest season (through October 31st) of any whitewater park in Colorado. This feature will provide visitors and citizens of Lyons with a unique recreational opportunity from learning to kayak to spending a lazy afternoon watching kayakers at play. Any additional funds raised will be used for fish habitat projects on the St Vrain River.

The proposed site for the new whitewater feature is truly unique to Colorado. The whitewater course is located to take full advantage of water released from Carter Lake into the St. Vrain River to meet irrigation, domestic and municipal demands by those entitled to utilize the Carter Lake water. This allows the Colorado-Big Thompson Project water to be used for recreational benefits in addition to the other uses for which it is released, providing maximum utilization of that water. The location of the course is made possible through cooperation of the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy and the United States Bureau of Reclamation.

The benefit starts at 6 pm and will go through the evening until 11 pm. The cost of this benefit will be $25.00 with $15.00 being a tax-deductible donation. The $25.00 entry fee gets you inside for the all inclusive Cajun buffet, the vibes of Whitewater Ramble and entry to the silent auction. The silent auction will feature items donated by companies from Jackson Kayak, Riot Kayaks, Kelty, Spyder, Smith Sunglasses, Merrill, Smart Wool, Redstone Cyclery and many, many more items from artwork to kid backpacks. There is going to be bargains abound with all funds going to the Lyons River Project- on the St. Vrain River. There is limited space at Oskar Blues and tickets are sure to sell out fast so be sure to get your tickets early. For tickets to this great party, call Oskar Blues at 303-823-6685.

October Hole Fundraiser -just a quick note

Its worth mentioning that Oskar Blues is now non-smoking from 6pm until close downstairs while music is playing. Our event will be non-smoking the entire time so in case you were worried about bringing the young ones, don't. This will be a family friendly event. If you are a smoker, there is a patio outside that is smoker friendly.

Cheers.

Tickets are now available at Oskar Blues for presale. You can call Oskar Blues in Lyons (303 823-6685) and your tickets can be picked up or your name can be placed at "will call". Marty (Craw) Cronin will have tickets available next Thursday at the Confluence and CWWA get together (Old Chicagos). Any other presale locations will be listed here in the next few days. We will also post an updated list of all our products for auction. Wet House productions has a really sweet press release at their website http://wet-house.com/2006/03/spring-for-river.php Check it out. I got to preview the video and it has some serious WOW factor. Ammen has made what will be considered a whitewater video classic. The band (Whitewater Ramble) says they're super amped for the show. Check out their website too ...... www.Whitewaterramble.com

I'm available if you need any help purchasing tickets or have questions regarding the event. (Matt Booth 303 229 0070)

My donation to the cause will be taking punches in the gut for five bucks a pop during the party. If you don't know me, I'm 6'2" tall, about 200 lbs, bald, wrist brace on my left hand, will be wearing Jackson Kayak apparel, and often answer to Marty or "The Craw".

Bring it on.
