Rincon Rendezvous '08 ~ Aug.1-3

Colorado squirt boaters (all 12 of you), it's that time again... the 8th annual Rincon Rendezvous is upon us!

If you squirt boat, you know the drill—If you don't, but want to give it a try, come on out - it's only 10 minutes from Salida. There'll be plenty of extra glass for you to jump in and roam the depths of the best mystery move venue in Colorado.

More info can be found at RinconRendezvous.com

Is it on both Saturday and Sunday at the mystery spot below the island?

According to Canoe and Kayak magazine squirt boating is making a comeback so I better dust off the Angst and get out there with you all so I am ahead of the curve....

I believe ESPN coverage is exclusive to the Sonnar Cup, but you never know. There will definitely be a keg of beer (homebrew) again this year.

Yes. There *might* also be an all glass assault of brows canyon intertwined somewhere in there - depending on group interest.

It's definitely making a comeback, brahs. C&K has totally called it. You shoulda seen it last year when we had the camera cable strung over the river to get the bird's eye shot. The ESPN folks did a brilliant job of splicing in those shots with the underwater helmetcam shots, too. I mean, that's really what pushed TV viewership beyond 10 million and attracted the attention of the Beijing organizers.

Should be a good one this year, as we're expecting upwards of 370 squirtboaters. We're also considering hiring the midway company that sets up the FIBArk carnival, but they may be a little small time for us.

(Lenny, now that I think about it, wouldn't a funnel-cake booth be kind?)

If you showed up sometime on Saturday afternoon, I'm sure folks will be there. Call me crazy, but I like hanging out at Rincon better than squirting Brown's anyway.

Did we forget to even have the Sonar Cup last year? ooops. Maybe we'll try and be a little more on the ball this year. maybe.

Is Rincon going to be broadcast on ESPN...or ESPN "The Ocho"? Either way, I'm stoked. Hopefully the scouts will see my talent and sign me to a new sticker sponsor.

USS is close to coming in. The rock has stayed pretty constant at 2.7-2.8ft for awhile now. I think last yeat we had a small window of optimal flows.
