Update-2nd HTTD of the Season is this Wednesday

It has been a great spring with good flows and great weather. Area boaters have been out daily hitting up all of the creeks, rivers, and play spots that the INW has to offer. A warm April has melted off most of our snow pack but we still have water in the Spokane River and there is another fun HTTD this week. According to Avista flows should stay around the current 2700-3100CFS range for the next week or so. The warm water coming out of the lake and these flows will make for a great event at Sullivan Hole!
• This Wednesday June 15th, event will start around 6 pm.
• Meet at the Mission Road Trail Head Parking area for paper work at 5:30 pm, and then we will move up stream to Sullivan Hole for the Pre-Event Briefing.
• Event will be a multi skill event to include a short slalom style course in the Sullivan Hole Rapid, show off your best tricks in a freestyle session at Sullivan Hole, and if time allows a quick throw bag comp to see who has been practicing their rescue skills this spring.
• All you need is your gear and a throw bag if you have one.
• Come out even if you are not interested in racing. It will be fun to watch and there is always a need for safety kayakers.
• Also bring friends and/or family to enjoy the comp as this location is right next to the Centennial Trail and has a good shoreline for viewing the event.
• After wards we will finish up in the parking lot with some laughs and swag. The new parking area has a great spot with grass and picnic tables for hanging out.
Cheers

2016 Reno Throwdown #4

As the snow in the Sierras started melting and filling our rivers we transitioned from freestyle to creek racing for our Reno HTTDs.  Last Wednesday saw a fun crew take 2 runs down a 2-3 min course on the Truckee River’s Floriston Rapids.  Colin and I set up a fun course that involved a switch section and tough S-Turn maneuver.  Toby kept things going as the sun was setting and everyone improved on their second run over their first.
