Bridal Veil Boater-Cross/Race

Post by TennesseeJed on Tue 31 May 2011, 3:47 pm

Many of you are aware of the Vertical Challenge that is currently underway. The goal of this nationwide competition is to ultimately raise funds to help an incredible organization that is First Descents. To learn more about First Descents please watch this video http://youtu.be/ne79-OobkI0

Short and sweet, we are having a full blown whitewater kayak race on June 18th in the Bridal Veil section of the Provo river. We will be meeting at Nunns park (the race take out) The racing begins at 12:00pm and registration will start around 10:00am. Depending on how many racers we have we will choose between boater-cross or a timed race. Maybe even both.

The race will begin at or below Upper Falls Park and finish at Nunns Park. It cuts the full run in half while leaving the goods in. We have a grip of safety personnel, so bring your game face! This race is for anyone with solid class III abilities or higher.

We hope to raise as much as we can for First Descents by way of racer entry fees, donations, and a raffle. There are prizes to the winners of the race and raffle winners.

This is likely one of the best years to have his race with the flow situation as it is, so mark this on the calendar for sure.

Have any old gear you don't need/want? Donate it to our used gear silent auction. You can have 100% of the profits go to First Descents or if you need/want a cut let us know!

The time is near.... Heres the final bit of details.

Registration stops at 11:30.
Cost of the race is a mandatory $5 (ACA fees) and a $15 suggested donation after that. We have been asked to get $5 from everyone racing unless they have a valid ACA card, cant be expired.
Keep on the D/L with alcohol. It is Utah County...
Raffle prices are still TBA.
Raffle/auction will be after the race but they can be bought anytime before we start pulling numbers.
We will have everything based at Nunns Park; registration, auction, raffle...
If you want to help with safety they are having a run down at 10am at Nunns. If your going to be late, contact Jeff Young.
Shuttle will have to be done by the racers and/or partners, wifes, flings, friends...

After all the fun I'm going to have a little shin dig/BBQ at my house for my birthday. 722 North 1130 West, Orem. Right off the 800 North Orem exit.

I have to work at 2pm, but would like to attend. I need to know if I need to get a babysitter and ask my work for a few hours off.

Daniel, tell the squad commander that you need to be put on River Ranger Duty, on loan to the Provo PD for about 4 hours...that should work. Do you want me to put in a good word for ya? (Might do more harm than good, though...Wink)

Only a couple of days away! People are getting stoked. I can already see everyones grins.

I'm sorry to announce that we are canceling the food/bbq part of the fundraising for multiple reasons. If you come hungry chances are you will remain that way. There are BBQ provided

On a brighter note the swag pile is getting bigger and bigger!

Soooo, what's the course details? I'm assuming not the whole 3 mile stretch, like foot bridge to foot bridge? I hope to participate, assuming something else doesn't come up...

Fixed the class error.

Mr. Teats, that question has been explained. Not 100% sure on starting but it wont be near the regular put in. Finish line is prime already at Nunns.

Its true, after a day of phone calls, frustration and a lot of jazz, the race has to be postponed til the 18th of June. Please let everyone know that was planning on attending the race and raffle. I apologize for any inconvenience.

Back to "normal" seasonal flows. Should still be fun. For this reason we will be cutting the course down just a tad.
