Lyons Whitewater Fest-June 12th

Come on up to Lyons on June 12th for the 3rd annual Lyons Whitewater Fest. Several competitions will be held throughout the day with classes from Beginner to Pro to K-9! If you aren't looking to compete then we got a beer garden featuring Dale Pale Ale to keep you happy.

Major sponsors currently include the Town of Lyons, Lyons Chamber of Commerce, Kelty, Barking Dog Cafe and Oskar Blues/Dales Pale Ale. Our other great sponsors include Jackson Kayaks, Riot Kayaks, Salamander, Defeet, BOC, Wildwasser, MountainMaiden, Big Agnes, Honeystinger, Backpacker Pantry, and Ruff Wear. The events will be held at the Black Bear Hole, which is one of the premier freestyle locations in Colorado. The Black Bear Hole is on the east side of Lyons across from the Black Bear Restaurant.

The Lyons Whitewater Festival is a Colorado Cup whitewater rodeo series event (freestyle), which draws competitors from across the nation and crowns an overall winner of the leading whitewater festivals in the state. In addition to the rodeo, events include 3+ mile DownRiver Race, “Hole P-I-G” Competition (freestyle), BoaterCross Relay and a Good Dog Competition (dogs only, no kayaks).

“Hole P-I-G” is basically like the basketball game P-I-G, but instead of making a shot, paddlers must duplicate a series of tricks. The BoaterCross Relay Race is a hybrid of “Boarder X” from the “X-Games” and pits teams against one another in a fierce relay of one to four competitors who paddle the whitewater course, run back to the put-in through an obstacle course, and paddle the course again. The first team to complete 4 full laps is the winner.

The Good Dog Competition involves the smartest river dogs on the planet fetching a stick in the river and other river dog skills. Merchandise will be awarded to the winners of all events. The entry fee includes all whitewater events and is $25 with a T-shirt, $20 without. The entry fee for the Good Dog Competition is $10 with a T-shirt. For more information see www.lyons-colorado.com/whitewater/

The schedule for the weekend is:

Sunday
9am-2 pm Registration
10am-11am Downriver Race
11am-12pm Good Dog Comp
12pm-1pm BoaterCross Relay
1pm-2pm Hole P-I-G Comp

Who or how would someone contact the city of Lyons to see if the river side groover at the BB hole could get dumped?

Thing is rockin' some serious funk. Could smell it from the foot bridge. Obviulsy not a show stopper...but could keep some people from watching the comps.

I'm not complaining....just lookin' out.

Skeeter, the groover is being sucked clean today and another should be dropped off. The construction equipment, pipe and gravel have all been moved and we are ready. The water is up to 480 cfs today which is a great level. The SSV and NSV runs are both runnable as well.

We also need a few safety boaters to help out, so anyoe can ping me if you can help out a little bit on Sunday.
