Reminder: Paddlefest 2009
As I wrote back in March, ’tis the season, once again. The mighty Arkansas River is rising, the waters turning chocolate. Our big kickoff to river season is Paddlefest, May 22-25, 2009. This what the folk at Colorado Kayak Supply have to say,
Come to Buena Vista, Colorado for huge kickoff party to celebrate the start of the summer whitewater boating season. Join us for an action-packed weekend of fun and educational activities for paddlers of all ages and abilities. Kayakers from beginners to aspiring competitors can rub elbows with paddling manufacturers, top pro kayakers, and other industry pros during a weekend chock full of education, entertainment, gear shopping and camaraderie.
Join a pro kayaker for a freestyle clinic, take a guided tour on the river, participate in a “how to” clinic, show off your skills in a fun kayak competition in the new river park or relax and watch live music and videos. The entire weekend will also promote awareness and raise funds for American Whitewater, the nation’s leading organization dedicated to conserving and restoring America’s whitewater resources. We hope to see you all there.
The Buena Vista Roastery will be open across the street from CKS, bright and early Saturday morning and all day Friday roasting beans and slinging espressos.
