Sweet. I'm still in as a volunteer for this event.

Safety, timing or registration. Whatever you need.

If it fills up it's going to be quite the show!

This is going to be a great addition to an already amazing event!

I just registered in both long and short boat.
Is there going to be an over 40 class?

This is going to be fun!

Logan, we would love to have you as part of the safety team. Reach out to me direct for needs and trade out compensation. If other competent paddlers would like to help with safety for this event or others, please contact [email protected] or [email protected]

We are being asked to start small in 2016 ( 60 paddlers ) and offer a safe and quality DR race for class 4 plus paddlers. It should be really fun and good opp. for Colorado paddlers to test their abilities together. And it brings some new excitement to the weekend's activities in BV.

All the more reason for some folks to step up to help with safety the first year. We want the AHRA to look favorably on the event. I would love to see a 3 tiered event down the road with a Numbers race, a Fractions race and then the Race to the Grill on the Milk Run with a circuit award for the racer to earn the most points through all 3 races...
