Screaming 1/4 Mile Race and boat lengths/regulations.....

I totally agree with you that a boat under 9' in length doesn't have a chance against the LL Stinger, JK Karma Unlimited or a Dagger Green Boat. However, the last 3 years we've only had 2 Green Boats and 1 Pyranha Fusion. So, as long as we have more then 5 competitors with longer boats, >9' we'll have 2 categories. But, if only 3 competitor's have long boats, we'll calculate their average time and then take the top 6 boats or 200% of the long boats, time and subtract the difference for the short boats or add the time difference to the long boats. I suggest that everyone paddles a boat shorter then 9' so we can just have 2 categories: men's and women's. Otherwise the prize pool won't be as deep if we have lots of different categories with very little competitors within these categories. Only time will tell what we end up doing but we'll do our best to accomadate and award ALL COMPETITORS that participate.

The Golden Games and Raft Race weather forecast is looking good. Take those fishing frames off your rafts, grab a few friends and put together a team. We have set up a course good for all skill levels and boat sizes.

No excuses, let's bring raft racing to the Front range!
