Lyons Outdoor Games... WE NEED PEOPLE FOR CREEK RACE SAFETY

Alright, this is getting really good. Water levels are at an all time high for the games. Looks as if we will have more then a 110% more water than last years and even more from previous years.
The Adam Barron Memorial Creek Race is not open to spectators, BUT is open for people that are assisting with safety for the race. Please step up if you fully understand how to throw a rope, how to rescue someone and probably most importantly, when NOT to assist. For those stoked to see one of the best steep creek races in the country, this is it... and 70% of the run can be seen from most vantage points...

I would prefer that the safety personnel be at least solid IV+ boaters themselves. You need to be in Lyons early on Saturday morning, and it might be best to show up Friday night and party it up with the bands and bbq that are happening. Camping is free for the athletes and voluteers at Meadow Park Campground in downtown Lyons.

Post your contact info here and Kyle will call you.

As long as the race is still at 10:00 I can help. I have to be at DIA at 3:30.

Right on guys... Please plan on being at the Bohn park in Lyons at 8am sharp. The safety meeting starts at 8am and the meeting are being led by Matt Solomon. We can use you both!

Bohn Park is across the bridge that is just upstream of the black bear hole.

Still looking for more volunteers. If anyone else can lend a hand tomorrow, please meet us at Bohn Park Saturday morning at 8:00am. Or find me at Lyons and SSV this afternoon and evening. Thanks!
