Update-2nd HTTD of the Season is this Wednesday

It has been a great spring with good flows and great weather. Area boaters have been out daily hitting up all of the creeks, rivers, and play spots that the INW has to offer. A warm April has melted off most of our snow pack but we still have water in the Spokane River and there is another fun HTTD this week. According to Avista flows should stay around the current 2700-3100CFS range for the next week or so. The warm water coming out of the lake and these flows will make for a great event at Sullivan Hole!
• This Wednesday June 15th, event will start around 6 pm.
• Meet at the Mission Road Trail Head Parking area for paper work at 5:30 pm, and then we will move up stream to Sullivan Hole for the Pre-Event Briefing.
• Event will be a multi skill event to include a short slalom style course in the Sullivan Hole Rapid, show off your best tricks in a freestyle session at Sullivan Hole, and if time allows a quick throw bag comp to see who has been practicing their rescue skills this spring.
• All you need is your gear and a throw bag if you have one.
• Come out even if you are not interested in racing. It will be fun to watch and there is always a need for safety kayakers.
• Also bring friends and/or family to enjoy the comp as this location is right next to the Centennial Trail and has a good shoreline for viewing the event.
• After wards we will finish up in the parking lot with some laughs and swag. The new parking area has a great spot with grass and picnic tables for hanging out.
Cheers

6/24/15-HTTD-Best Line Comp. @ Devil’s Toenail

tommygunn wrote 1191 days ago:


The pieces have fallen into place and we are set for the next HTTD in Spokane. The next event will be a “Best Line” Competition at the Devil’s Toenail in Riverside State Park. Each competitor will get multiple laps through the rapid and have their line judged in multiple categories (i.e. boofing, eddy turns, style, creativity, etc.) Because of this location there may be some need for carpooling or a shuttle vehicle to help bring boaters to and from the overflow parking areas.
• Wednesday June 24th
• 5 pm meet at the Toenail Parking area, please allow time to arrange parking of vehicles-overflow parking will be moved to the Toenail takeout, nearby bicycle trail head, and other options are available.
• 5:30 pm Event participant meeting, safety briefing, and park conservation considerations. The goal is for an event start time of 6 pm
• Discover Pass is required for parking in the park
• All you need is your gear and a throw bag if you have one.
• Come out even if you are not interested in getting in the water. It will be fun to watch and there is always a need for safety kayakers.
• Also bring friends and/or family as the rapid is easy to view from the parking area and shoreline, making it easy to spectate.
• After wards we will finish up at the parking area for some laughs, swag, and maybe a BBQ if all works out.
Look forward to seeing everyone out for some good friendly fun at the Devil’s Toenail, and can’t wait to see what lines the group can come up with!
Cheers
