White Water Play Park Hearing

tommygunn wrote 495 days ago:


My friends, in today’s chaotic world, we are fortunate to have recreation outlets that we are privileged to participate in. In order to maintain forward momentum with certain projects, we must take a stand.

Tonight at 7:00 pm, the Chelan County Parks and Recreation Department is holding a hearing concerning the future of our parks in the valley. A white water play park is on the table and is in need of support.

The last parks and recreation meeting I attended was attended by more people representing whitewater kayaking than any other individual sport. If we can keep consistent representation, we will make progress.

Join us tonight at 400 Douglas St. in Wenatchee at 7:00 pm. This may not show an immediate impact but it definitely cannot hurt.

I hope to see you there.

Cheers,

T-Pot!

Infinity Wave Surf Throwdown

saskia wrote 500 days ago:


It’s Wednesday again, and the river is even higher than last week. I guess we’re getting that big runoff we’ve been hoping for! It looks like she peaked this morning at just under 19,000 cfs and is now slowly creeping down. I paddled the play run yesterday in my Rockstar and there were few waves that were really crackin in the short boat. However, there was one that was extra baller.

Given that this may be a once every couple years flow, tonight we are going to get our big wave surf on. The location? The newly named “Infinity Wave” in Drunkards Drop.

Drunkards has been home to some of the most rippable waves on the Wenatchee. With the classic Hawaii 5-0, the big air inducing Trinity, and the coldest ‘Jacuzzi’ you’ve ever been in, it’s time to add one more to the list of shred spots stacked up in this short section of river.

This evening, be prepared to hike laps, paddle hard, and surf big because it is on! We will meet at the Cashmere take out at 5:30, as per usual. See you all there!!

Three Amigos Race

tommygunn wrote 500 days ago:


Alright, alright, alright… Event 3 in the Wenatchee Valley for the World Kayak hometown throw down. Is the “Three Amigos Race”! The format will be a race chaser start or Pursuit. At the call of 3, 2, 1, Go!, we will release the first racer then in 5 second intervals each succeeding racer will follow. The second race will receive a 5 second deduction, third a 10 second, fourth a 15 second and so on. At the end of the event the finishing judge will tally up the racers results. This format will give competitors just enough space to charge their line but there is still the potential to get over taken during the run. This race is rough 1100 – 1200 meters and is intended to test the paddler’s forward stroke. The time domain for this event is estimate to in the 7 – 15 minute range. For those training for the Robe race this is a great chance to practice drafting and or your power move to overtake a competitor. For this event we will need a minimum of two volunteers if you are interested please let me know. If there are any local photographers that have the evening free come out and join us.

Registration starts at 5:00pm
Competitor briefing 5:30 – 5:45 pm
Race start around 6:00 pm

Looking forward to racing with everyone. Cheers!
