Third Amigo Head to Head

Ahhhh, what a beautiful day it is out there today! Rain drops, birds chirping, and rivers rising. I woke up this morning thinking I could hear the roar of Exit from my bedroom, but then I realized that was just my heater blasting hot air cause its still cold AF.

Anyway, I’m sure you’ve all been itching to find out what fun event we are going to have today so here it is.

THIRD AMIGO HEAD TO HEAD RACES!!!

Meeting at the Castle Rock parking lot in Tumwater Canyon (see map) at 5:30. We will draw numbers to determine who races who and create a bracket (Everyone should be accustomed to this given the current sporting event that is so popular). Racers will put in above the 3rd Amigo and ferry to the eddy above the rapid on river right. A starting line judge (volunteer needed) will blow a whistle and two paddlers at a time will rally down the rapid. The first paddler to reach the finish line (finish line judge also needed) will continue to the next heat. The second paddler gets to drink beer. We will continue this process until everyone has competed!

Please try and be close to on time as we will have a short safety meeting before the event and I do have a small amount paper work for competitors to fill out.

The 3rd Amigo has great river side spectating so bring your friends and family to watch you go fast in these short river assaults.

If you have any questions, please feel free to hit me up!

See you all tonight!!

2017 HTTD Season kicks off April 26th

It’s that time again…

Hometown Throwdown Season

This year we have already had more precipitation than any other year in recorded history in the Northern Sierra so flows will be high throughout the summer.  With that in mind we are going to go a bit longer this year and hold events through June.  So grab your friends, dust off the paddling gear, and meet us in two weeks to kick things off.  HTTD will start at 5-530pm on Wednesdays every two weeks.

  • April 26th –  Reno Whitewater Park  –  Slalom Survivor Race
  • May 10th — TBD
  • May 24th — TBD
  • June 7th — TBD
  • June 21st — TBD

Because flows will be changing a lot this season, we will be adjusting the event type and location as we go. So check back in for information on the next event.  As always Colin has worked to get great sponsors for World Kayak in 2017, this year we already have lots of great gear from:

  • Jackson Kayak
  • Mountain Khakis
  • Ninkasi
  • Accent Paddles
  • IR
  • Kokatat
  • Effort Inc.
  • Astral

Remember that we will always have lots of great beer from Ninkasi Brewing.

See you on the 26th!!!!!
