The river's high and the kayakers are psyched. The Black Bear hole was packed today with kayakers practicing and taking Jackon Kayak clinics. I watched cars with kayaks on top drive up and down the canyon, likely running the river and/or checking out the roadside drops. In fact, tomorrow kicks off with the Adam Barron Memroial South Saint Vrain Creek Race, during which two world champs Tao Berman and Scott Shipley are going to be going head to head.
The day is also full of dog competitions, additional kids and amateur kayak comps and slalom races, dirt jump comps, and clinics and exhibitions in kayaking, chainsaw carving, skateboarding, and fly fishing. Temps are supposed to be in the low 70s, with a chance of showers. So bring your sunscreen and your rain coats. There's beer, music, and thousands of dollars worth of cool outdoor equipment stuff that will be auctioned and raffled off. See you tomorrow!
