For anybody in the Upper Ark Valley or is interested in an excuse to come down to Salida and do some cold weather (600cfs) paddling please support our fundraiser for the 2010 Whitewater Park extension. 2 new features, a climbing wall in Riverside Park and trail expansion is all planned for 2010. All funds will go directly to these improvements. $1 PBR's, raffle with sick prizes like a Kona Board from CKS, the latest offering from Powderwhore and free appetizers from the Boathouse Catina. Thanks in advance for your support! Mike

Hope to see you all tonight. We have lined up a bunch of cool prizes and local river surf board shaper Zack Hughes is giving away one of his Badfish river surf boards, hand built in Salida and designed to shred little play park features like the lower Salida hole. 6pm at the Boathouse. Thanks in advance for your support.

We are selling engraved bricks that will go in near the new playspot in Riverside Park. This is also a great way to contribute to the cause. You can buy one online here: arkpaddler

Nice...

It has been a year or so since the last flare up of the BV/saliva thing!! Its goin down!! Dont the rappers call it beef??

Anyway I do think about you boys when I am driving into work on days like this. As I drive into work and look down valley at what is gettin to be known as "saliva's brown" cloud is hanging thick... Kinda like driving down into denver on a bad day....

Dont get me wrong here - there is a ton of class 2/3 right there around salider for you boys to hone your skills on. You can take advantage of this everyday!!! The playpark looks great (I would not know as it has been 4 years) and is no doubt is worthy of owning only playboats. I have never figured out why salida boaters do not own creekers and ft collins boys do not own playboats??? I guess the saliva boys figure that there is no need to fill the garage up with such large boats and the pouder boys cant even figure out how to get 1 wave in. Not 1!!!

Oh yea and just so you "exit" boys know there are 2 great creeks up here and one of these years you all should come up and try em out ;).. I will give you boys a call again when they come in. Dont worry about the numbers sessions in July at 3000cfs - better to be watin in line down at F street anyway..

And in the winter you get to look forward to monarch pass and the "perfect trees"... I am laughing now we all are. Yep sitting here laughing.........

I guess you guys did kick our ass in high school football this year so at least you got somethin..

Nice retort!!!

Well at least the old ref got a new roof this year..

Harv here are a few other slogans for ya that better fit saliva..

"Salida - only 40 miles to the goods!!" - And you will be well protected by the 7 cops you will pass on your way home.

"Salida - the best meth in chaffee co period!!!"

"Salida - battlin with granite for the distinction of the 2nd best paddlin town in chaffee county!!!!"

"Salida - where the class 2 is so good that boaters here dont even need creek boats!!!"

"Salida - the only walmart in chaffee county!"

"Salida - has to be sweet, outdoor mag picked us as one of the best!"

What do you guys think?? One of these would be perfect to hang under the saliver city limits sign....

Facts:
-The upper Ark has 100 miles of class 2-5. Salida is in the middle of it, BV is at one end (Royal gorge and Parkdale are at the other end).
-Salida has a town. BV has a stoplight.
-K's (in BV) has wicked good Peanut Butter shakes.
-Neither town can pronounce their name correctly.
-I get the same feeling in BV on Sundays that I get in Salt Lake...shame for missing church (maybe that is just my Catholic guilt)

Jokes:
Q- What do they use for birth control in BV?
A- Their personalities.

Q- How many BVers does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
A- Zero...they'd rather sit in the dark and complain.

I'm not Ft collins but I am Poudre boy...Insert joke about always playing in the Poudre (whatever she likes)...But I have 2 creekers and 2 play boats and gonna buy a 3rd playboat soon! 3 car garages kick ass when you only have 2 cars! What else am I suppose to fill the extra space with?

Never played in Salida but will hit ya'll up next season!

Just a little update from the Upper Ark....

We mobilized back into BV today, now that the water is down and will be working on the last new play feature and some fun on the fly stuff. Should be done by March 1.

Things are hopefully lining up for Salida for a March 1 start of construction on 2 new features, a climbing wall and park improvements.

Just wanted to put a plug out there that you can support the whitewater park in Salida by buying an engraved brick that will be installed in the park near the new climbing wall and new downstream surf spot.

Go to Donate to Salida Whitewater Parks Phase 3 if you are interested. Thanks in advance for your support.

Here is a little Salida Park spam video my friends at the salidacitizen.com put together.
