Rincon Rendezvous 2012 Press Release:
Some call it the apocalypse, and to others they see it as the “end of days”, the rapture, but for the lonely, but growing dedicated few that descend into the depths of that “boring doldrums area” on the Arkansas River outside Salida, CO each summer for the Annual Rincon Rendezvous –A Homebrewed Colorado Squirt Festival. These glittery few seek a seam of water that runs down the dragons back. They seek to sink, go into the realm and get fluid for a while. I have seen them firsthand ride this dragon into the depths and come back zombies, shell of a man, ghost in the eyes.
As always the main goal of the gathering is to get down and look for zombies rising from the deeps of the Arkansas River. This year is special and we are pleased to announce that this year’s Rincon Rendezvous will also be the site of the annual World Squirt Boating Championships. The world’s best squirt boaters will be converging on the Arkansas River 6 miles outside of Salida, CO near the Rincon Boat Ramp. This year it’s more than the Rincon Colorado Pride Trophy up for grabs, but the 2012 title in World’s Squirt will be decided this August. This year it will be the first weekend in August 3-5.
So, dust off your glass, clear your calendars and please join us, as competitors from around the world are already booking their flights and making arrangements to take your hometown gold. This is a very friendly spot to learn/ try squirt boating, do some family camping, and see and spend time in the squirt world. See this crazy awesome, amazing, breathtaking, mystery of a sport firsthand and get hooked. Zombies eat brains we all know that, now grab your glass, let’s go and get a taste of Colorado.
More information will be coming and a webpage is being created as I type.
Here is a little video clip from last year at far less than desired levels around 500 cfs. Enjoy and tell you squirt friends to get ready this has never happened before and who knows if it ever will again.
