Gally river festival
Hoping to see a lot of people, a lot of shuttles and not a lot of LEO involvement at take-out... Should be fun.

ITS BACK! The permit came through today, the FESTIVAL IS ON! The Gallatin River has not hosted an event to celebrate the whitewater in our back yard since 2009. JUNE 29 - 30, 2013 that will change!

This year's Gallatin River Whitewater Festival will feature two days of events that will highlight the best water on the river.

Races will kick off on Saturday at noon with the Community Raft Slalom. Pre-registered teams of five will power rafts provided and piloted by local raft guides. The boats will have to negotiate both whitewater and gates to score a low time in this event.

On Sunday, competition will heat up. The Thumper DR will be a timed downriver race for kayakers, canoers and rafters from Thumper through the Mad Mile. The House Rock Boater X will be a mass start event from the 35 MPH Bridge through House Rock. And, the 35 MPH Slalom will run from the 35 MPH Bridge to the eddy above House Rock.

Proceeds will benefit Eagle Mount and Wave Train Kayak Team's youth program.

Just a reminder this is going down this weekend. The facebook page said $15/competitor. Sounds like you might get 3 races for that price, but it might be $15 a race. Cash/check only. Should be a fun time.
