Raft/Inflatable Race-Lyons Outdoor Games

Get your rubber ready! We are adding a superfun, new race to Lyons Outdoor Games. Well... it is actually is more for fun than a real race. We are doing a race from Meadow Park to the Black Bear Hole as part of Lyons Outdoor Games on June 2nd at 4pm. Single man rafts, SUPs, and up to 16' rafts are all fair games. Costumes encouraged! Head over to Burning Can afterwards for the big party!!!

Here is a link to the rules:

So the whitewater page for BURNING CAN (not Lyons Outdoor Games) says “NOTICE - 5/29/2019: We were informed today that there will not be a water release for the Lyons Outdoor Games, scheduled for this coming weekend.”

How is it that the organizers couldn’t, at the very least, secure several hours of a water release when this year’s snowpack for the St. Vrain watershed is way above average?

I hate to say it but I think LOG is officially dead... and based on the lack of posts to this thread - nobody cares. I guess there are plenty of other successful whitewater festivals happening elsewhere in the state. Very sad for the town of Lyons and the local boating community.

One has to wonder if anyone is truly committed to this mission. And in the absence of any official word from the town or organizers - this looks like a complete fail. #notstoked

MISSION + HISTORY OF LYONS WHITEWATER EVENTS
​All Whitewater events included in the Burning Can Festival at the Lyons Outdoor Games, are organized by an original crew of passionate Lyons local kayakers who have helped grow the event over the past two decades. The mission of the Whitewater events is to support the growth of the kayaking community, raise funds and awareness for the Town of Lyons Park, Recreation and Cultural Department, and to keep Lyons growing as a vibrant, unique and outdoor-oriented Colorado community. Our vision is simple: for every person to leave here stoked to #liveandventurouslife!
