There is no official downriver race in Lyons Outdoor Games this year. There is an unofficial one just created with race directors endorsement this morning on same course but it is UNOFFICIAL ie no registration and not part of official event.
Shuttle Meeting location: Black Bear Hole/main Outdoor Games headquarters. 815 am. Look for my Black Audi with Wildwater boat on top. Self shuttle (ie consolidating onto several vehicles departs 8:30 sharp.
Race start: This Saturday, June 13th, 9am Apple Valley Bridge put in where Apple Valley Road meets 36 Highway. Limited parking for maybe 4 cars before neighbors fire gunshots. Timer at finish line starts at 9am regardless of if we are in our boats yet
Finish line is Black Bear Hole Rapid approx 24 minutes downstream.
Rules: No elbows or headlocks allowed. Mass start of probably 10 kayaks at 9am. No safety boats will be on course and if you assist another kayaker in distress you win the race. Any plastic or composite kayak less than 14 ft fine with greater than 300 cfs.
Beta: Shallow class 2 creek (South St. Vrain) with appox 8 Class 2+ manmade drops. Check out flows online. Anything over 300 is fun AND I JUST SAW CONFIRMATION THAT A 300 PLUS CFS RELEASE IS CONFIRMED ENSURING GREAT FLOWS ON SAT/SUN SO SAT RACE WILL BE SCREAMING DOWN THIS SECTION.
