Idaho Hometown Throwdown Rescheduled


2010
06.10

Well it’s been an interesting spring! A few weeks ago we had no water on the North Fork for a Throwdown at KWP, and now we are having flooding….gotta love it :-\

Anyway – I ran up to KWP Monday and there is so much water coming down that the features are pretty much washed out. Flow was right at 6,500 and as you can see from the graph, it’s going up…  Forecast from BOR is ‘more of same’. So we are going to do this…. Move the TD at KWP from Saturday 6/12 to Saturday 6/26 at 11am.

This give us two Throwdowns that week – but I don’t see a problem with that :-)   So Thursday 6/24 at 6pm we’ll be at the gutter and Saturday 6/26 11am we’ll plan on KWP

Hope to see you there!

Boise Hometown Throwdown for June Moved – Too Much Water!


2009
06.06

Hey everyone – We have decided to postpone the June Throwdown and move it to another date. We have so much water that the gutter is full and has no good waves, Most of this weekend there was even too much water for the bladder wave – it just glassed out. And when it is in it may only be in for a short time and then change again.

In Boise the 36th street wave is pushing to the far side of the river and many would miss the must-make eddy on the near side and end up washing down stream where the river is flowing through the brush/trees with no eddies. I checked it out today and right now the hole is pretty trashy.

I’ll talk to everyone at the next TD and find what works best, I imagine that we will add it in the first or second week of September – But I’ll leave that up to the participants :-)

Thanks and see you at the Kickoff meeting for the Boise River Park on Thursday!
