07.31

Our next Throwdown is Thursday August 6th at the Gutter.

5:30 for registration and hit the wave at 6pm. I’ll bring my grill, so bring you favorite grill food for after the event if you would like to stick around and enjoy the warm evenings that are here! As usual we will draw for prizes after the event.

Want to test out a new ’10 Star series boat?? You can at the Throwdown! We are teaming up with Alpenglow Mountainsport in order to add Jackson Kayak Demo-Daze to the mix. Alpenglow will provide a slew of boats for you to test out during the evening including the 2010 Star series. Alpenglow also has all 2010 Star models in stock and available for Demos including the new MonStar!

If possible, please register for the event online at http://worldkayakblogs.com/throwdown/register/ (then click on the link for Boise Throwdown #3). If you have ANY problems creating a login, registering, etc – let me know. I can fix you up pretty fast.

As usual, if you want to bring something to ‘throw on the Barbie’ after the TD, I’ll bring the grill :-)

Two Avoidable Fatalities on Idaho’s Payette River This Weekend Underline Basic Safety

This last weekend saw two drownings on the Payette. A group of novices tried rafting the lower class V section of the North Fork and tubers on the South Forks class II without life jackets.

These accidents drive home two of the most basic rules of river safety.

1. Know the section of river you are running and how that relates to the skill set of you and your fellow paddlers.

2. Wear a life jacket on the river!
