devin_sternHello everyone. Our second WK Hometown Throwdown for the year is this Saturday (5/28) at Kelly’s Whitewater Park in Cascade – 11am. We are planning on a 2-ride freestyle on the wave and then I would like to include a few boatercross heats at the end. The new bridge KWP put in makes boatercross a great addition to our events :-) More info on KWP at http://kwpid.com . Make sure you check out their Park Cam.

If you haven’t been up to KWP it is worth the drive and the scenery while you are surfing is awesome. This weekend is the opening weekend for the park this year and here is Saturday’s Schedule:

-Dedication of Strand & bridge 9:30 A.M.
-Interpretive “Volksmarch” on Strand trail 7:30 & 9:45
- KWP Benefit Breakfast 8:30 A.M.
- Regional kayakers “HOMETOWN THROWDOWN” 11:00

Our TD  schedule for season looks like this:
5/28/2011 – KWP 11:00am
6/25/2011 – KWP 11:00am
8/13/2011 – KWP 11:00am
9/3/2011 – KWP 11:00am

Our Hometown Throwdowns are FREE, fun, easy to run and low stress events set up to encourage both community activity (playing together) and skills development.   Prizes are raffled off so that the competitive angst and walls are taken down… and the only thing left is friendly competition and skills development.  Event formats include our freestyle throwdown and boater-cross.

Throwdowns break paddlers up into age and skill divisions, so anyone can participate!
