Third Amigo Head to Head Races

Good morning Wenatchee Valley!!
I know its been a long week of anticipation since our last World Kayak Wednesday, but I’m about to drop it like its hot!
Last Wednesday, we had 15 competitors show up to paddle in a torrential downpour. As I look out over Leavenworth this morning, it’s looking pretty damn bluebird out there. The river levels are up, the greens and blossoms are starting to pop, and it is just looking really awesome up here in Bavaria right now.
So, without boring you with more BS about how rad of a day it is in Leavenworth, here you go. Todays World Kayak Wednesday event is…
Third Amigo Head to Head Races!!!
This is a classic event in the Spring community event series and the water levels are working out perfect right now.
The event rules are as follows:
Upon arrival of participants, names of present competitors will be drawn and paired in twos. This will be a bracket format event where competitors will races two at a time and the victor of each race will continue to the next heat. The loser can practice their roll in an eddy.
The race will start in the river right eddy above the Third Amigo, and end at some point below the rapid that I decide on later.
We will meet at the Castle Rock parking lot at 5:00 pm.
If you are feeling like the Third Amigo at current flows may be too difficult for you, this is a great opportunity to get on the water with several experienced paddlers and work your way through the rapid with more safety than you’ll know what to do with. After the races are over, there will be plenty of time to practice lines and get a couple casual laps on the Third Amigo.
I am stoked to see everyone tonight! Bring your game face!
Love,
T-Pot

Cody Open Kayak Every Wednesday @6:00pm

It’s going to be a good winter here in Cody, WY. The Paul Stock Aquatic Center has scheduled Open Kayaking every Wednesday from 6pm-7:30pm. In order to reach out to more paddlers, we will be hosting a handful of Hometown Throwdown competitions throughout these winter months. This year, we will be encouraging new/beginner paddlers to join in the fun by providing equipment for community members to drop in, without having to worry about providing their own equipment. Starting in January, the Center will also be continuing it’s introduction to kayaking program for kids age 8-18. This program will operate in conjunction with the Open Kayaking nights. Come hop in a kayak for your first time, or practice your skills with other expert boaters from the community. Hope to see you there!

Uber Tube Madness

tommygunn wrote 535 days ago:


Oh yeah! It’s Wednesday again!

Summer is here in full effect and it’s time to celebrate. Since we took last Wednesday off, we’re coming back in force this week.

We have had a couple events on the Haus Run so far this season and there have been variable results. The Haus Run relay brought up some logistical confusion for some, and the head to head races only took 20 minutes for two heats.

You know what they say, the third time is a charm! So tonight, for the last event of June, I bring to you, Haus Run Uber Tube Boater X!!

That’s right! No kayaks this time! I have coordinated with Osprey Rafting to set us up with a fleet of tubes. The name of the game is to:

1) Rock your favorite tubing gear
2) Not loose your tube
3) Be the first one to the Icicle Bridge

This will be a quick and easy event and then we can go paddle Icicle.

If you have any questions, bring them to the Icicle Bridge. We’ll meet there at 5:30.

Cheers,

T-Pot!

P.S. PFD’s and helmets are required for Uber Tubing. TuTu’s and GoPro’s are encouraged. Flippers are not allowed.
