Last Wed evening saw a great crew come out to compete in a slalom type race on the south channel of the Reno White Water Park.  5 months into the 2017 water year and we have already broken the record for most precipitation since records have been kept.  For example, last year we had about 500 cfs for our first throwdown, on Wed it was 5,000 cfs and has been for over a month.

2017 HTTD Season kicks off April 26th

saskia wrote 283 days ago:


It’s that time again…

Hometown Throwdown Season

This year we have already had more precipitation than any other year in recorded history in the Northern Sierra so flows will be high throughout the summer.  With that in mind we are going to go a bit longer this year and hold events through June.  So grab your friends, dust off the paddling gear, and meet us in two weeks to kick things off.  HTTD will start at 5-530pm on Wednesdays every two weeks.

  • April 26th –  Reno Whitewater Park  –  Slalom Survivor Race
  • May 10th — TBD
  • May 24th — TBD
  • June 7th — TBD
  • June 21st — TBD

Because flows will be changing a lot this season, we will be adjusting the event type and location as we go. So check back in for information on the next event.  As always Colin has worked to get great sponsors for World Kayak in 2017, this year we already have lots of great gear from:

  • Jackson Kayak
  • Mountain Khakis
  • Ninkasi
  • Accent Paddles
  • IR
  • Kokatat
  • Effort Inc.
  • Astral

Remember that we will always have lots of great beer from Ninkasi Brewing.

See you on the 26th!!!!!

Greetings from your World Kayak Ambassador!

I hope everyone has been enjoying this nice weather and some higher than usual water levels on the River James (I know I have).

The purpose of this post is to let you guys know that I am planning three or four World Kayak events for this summer.  Tentative dates are June 2, June 30, July 21, and September 13 or 15.

This year, in addition to the seasoned paddlers who typically attend the events, I want to encourage those who are new or relatively new to kayaking to “come on out”.  There’s be plenty of prizes (free schwag) for everyone who participates and I believe a good time will be had by all.

Stay tuned for specific details on each event.  More details will follow in the coming weeks.

Have ideas for events or how to make our gatherings as inclusive as possible?  Please share.  You can PM me on Facebook or email me at toddanderson6@gmail.com.

Oh, one last thing…a quick shout out to our sponsors:  Mountain Khakis, Keen Footwear, Ninkasi Brewing, Shred Ready, Astral Bouyancy, Smith Optics, Accent Paddles, Rapid Transit; and last but not least – Jackson Kayak.

Cheers!

Todd
