Big Water Little Boats coming to CO

Hi All, I'll be taking the Big Water, Little Boats presentation to the Colorado headwaters next week! The presentation follows the whitewater exploits of Moulty Fulmer, the builder of Grand Canyon’s first dory during the high-water heyday of river running before Glen Canyon Dam. Fulmer manages almost forty years of Colorado River boating between 1942 and 1978, where he boated with Norm Nevills, Frank Wright, Dock Marston, Pat Reilly, and Martin Litton, besides rubbing shoulders with many other river runners who were Fulmer’s contemporaries. I'll include film clips of the first dory to run the Yampa (1950), the 1957 126,000 second feet flow as it looked at Boulder Narrows in Grand Canyon, and because it's Colorado and you all kayak, a short clip of Walter Kirschbaum running Lava Falls in 1960! Hope to see you there!


April 10 at Carbondale, CO, 7:00 PM, at Colorado Mountain College Lappala Center, 690 Colorado Avenue

April 11 at Salida, CO, 7:00 PM at Wood’s High Mountain Distillery
144 W 1st Street

April 12 at Breckenridge, CO, 6:30 PM, at Colorado Mountain College Eileen and Paul Finkel Auditorium, 107 Denison Placer Road

April 13 at Fraser, CO, 4:30 PM, Cozens Ranch Museum, 77849 US Highway 40

Hope to see you there, Tom

Hi All, we just added a presentation at Steamboat Springs at 7:00 PM on Monday the 14th at the Chief Theater, 813 Lincoln Avenue. Remember, these are all free and open to the public. If you want to buy a book after the presentation, we can help! :>)

Hey Tom,

When are you going to bring that presentation to Utah? Salt Lake City? Moab?

Hi T, the first place we did a Big Water Little Boats presentation was at Back of Beyond Books in Moab. Great Store! We'd like to do an event in Salt Lake. We are thinking about Saturday, Auust 9... thoughts? Do you know of a good venue in SLC? Thanks, yours, tom

Breviews would be great. The Salt Lake City library has a great room for presentations. The U of U (Marriott Library) may welcome something like this since they have river history artifacts. In fact,they just had an open exhibit a few months back. Perhaps the U may not charge to use the space?

How about Colorado Springs? You could try either Colorado Collage or UCCS. Both would be great venues for this film.
