There are also other events to be noted.

10:00 Free fly fishing clinic at Elk Park (a.k.a Fart Park)
11:30 Yampa River Cup downriver raft race (Fetcher Pond to C-hole)
12:00 Crazy River Dog competition
2:00 Learn to Kayak - sponsored by Mountain Sports Kayak
5:00 - ? Yampa River Gumbo Feast - silent auction and the Brewgrass Boys will be jamming until it's over.

All proceeds from events go to Friends of the Yampa.

As always, the City always asks that we do not park at the library. There is limited parking across the street or on Yampa Street, but there is a huge parking facility downriver at the Stockbridge, just a 10-min. walk upstream to the C & D holes.

This years theme is "The Yampa Is Wild" as we are working hard to continue to allow the Yampa to retain its certain "Wild" attributes. The RICD push, a Yampa River Improvement Master Plan, continued tree and vegetation plantings, river cleanups, local policy, other conservation and event coordination are some of F.O.Y. efforts.

Kent,

How did the RICD meetings go the other week, and the fundraiser at mohag? Hope they all went well, sorry I wasn't able to make it to help out. I'm sure I'll see you this weekend.

Zach.

The RICD as planned was denied any flows from the CWCB. They are now trying to get rafting and tubing off the application as the C & D holes, in their minds, don't add to the overall Yampa River rafting or tubing experience. They have no clue.

We knew this was going to happen as the CWCB has never supported a RICD. If they only could pull their heads out of their a$$e$ and realize that we now live in a Colorado where keeping water in the river is as important as diverting it off stream.

Now the RICD goes to water court (unsure about date) and then off to Supreme Court where all other RICDS were held up. So it's all good. I'll keep the Mtnbuzz world posted, though it seems from my last posting regarding the Steamboat RICD that not many boaters are listening.

Anyway, the party at Mahogany was great. Lot's of folks turned out.

This weekend should be a ton of fun. If forgot to mention that there will be a POOL TOY RODEO just prior to the kayak rodeo finals.

Late.
