Lyons Outdoor Games - Got Water?

Lyons Organizers,

Is there going to be a release on NSV for this event? If so, do you know when and how much?

Also, the flow for SSV says 87cfs. I know it is suppoesed to warm up, but it was cold up here in Ned again last night. How much water do you need for that race on Saturday?

Yep, we've had some very nice people from the water district plan for our event. They will supply us with the water we've asked for.
SSV is natural flow but they are pulling 68 cfs off to supply the Left hand diversion
This is how they will effectively create the flows we need for our race
They will turn off the diversion and raise SSV
Last year we had 120 cfs for the race
We will have between 150 and 200 for the race this year

NSV we've asked for 275-350
So Proving grounds and meadow park will be perfect

And the BB hole and A-Hole and O-hole will have
anywhere from 400 to 550 cfs (high end of perfect)

Thank you to all the folks that are allowing this cooperation to happen. We're VERY appreciative

Thanks for the update. Will NSV have the 275 to 350 water Friday night through Sunday evening?

Enough water for Shelly's Cottages Section?

Is 275-350 enough water to run the shelly's cottages section on the NSV. I am planning on coming up to watch the games and was hoping to hit this section while I am there.

Thanks,

Adam

How could it not flow?

With all this warm weather, it seems like it's going to rage.
Maybe those sick holes will turn into sick waves?

The pros put on a great show at the Paddling Life Pro Invitational, getting warmed up for Lyons (big water Gore couldn't have hurt either).
Paddling Life magazine -- for Paddling, Sea Kayaking, Whitewater Rafting, Kayaking, Canoeing, Kayak Fishing, Outrigger Canoe, Rec Boats and Touring, plus boating Blogs, Photos and News Clearinghouse.

Next year, maybe we should do the smart thing and combine for a points series? Seems logical doesn't it?

Have a great event guys!

JC

Shelly's cottages will be prime......Great run for people that love beautiful class III - III+ creek style. That run is one of the best and those flows will be perfecto

Smokey....Points system would make sense as would a full Creek series for Colorado. Final Race Gore Canyon in August

The guidebook give some pretty right on detail (The New Testament)
I know one of the authors will be in town for the event
The other is waiting to see if the levels "reach his Minimum"
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
