May 19th (1:30PM), we’re going to have the very first hometown throwdown of the year at Yorkville. It’s going to be EPIC!
Since Yorkville doesn’t quite have the features for some serious playboating, we’re going to make this throwdown a “Boatercross” event.
What is boatercross you ask? groups 5 at a time will race down the course all at once, going around obstacles, doing attainments and heading back down stream as fast as they can. (Do some searching on youtube to see coverage from last fall)
I know what you’re thinking “But, Bob… won’t people bump into each other? there could be some carnage” …my friend, that’s the idea
This will be as much fun to watch, as it will be to participate in.
If we have a large enough crowd (and we should), we’ll break up into a few classes:
Advanced Short Boat
Advanced Long Boat
Of course, there will be prizes for everyone who finishes at the top of their class.
On top of the awesome prizes donated by all of World Kayak’s sponsors… a few local shops have pitched in to make the prize pot even better. Next time you’re at Geneva Kayak, Paddle and Trail, the Yak Shack, or River City Roasters be sure to thank them!
PS… if you plan to participate, please arrive with both waivers signed in advance, this will help us start the event on time. Links to the waivers are here:
