Friday, June 2nd, 2017

A class III downriver race on the Hoback river, mass start from the ledges put-in to the takeout bridge before the confluence with the Snake. Kayak classes include (under 14’), long plastic (over 9’) and short plastic (9’ and under), broken out by men’s and women’s master (55+), open (18+) and junior (under 16) age groups. Other categories include Men's and Women's SUP and Raft. Rafts must be paddle-powered, and have no more than 6 paddlers per raft.

Location – ALL parking will be at the Gilcrease Cabin on the Hoback River (the party is here too), shuttles, with your boat, will be provided to the put-in and take-out. DO NOT PARK OR UNLOAD at the Ledges or take-out bridge, it puts our permit in jeopardy of being revoked!

Time – Gilcrease Cabin will open at 4:30 for parking, shuttles, and warm up runs from the Ledges down to the Cabin. Final shuttle from the Gilcrease Cabin will be leaving at 6:15, if you miss it you are not racing, sorry! Final safety meeting at 6:25 at the Ledges put-in, followed by the gun!

Awards – Shuttles will bring you back to the Gilcrease Cabin as you finish, stay for the awards, raffle and party.
