I have decided to postpone the Slammin Salmon Slalom until next weekend, March 23rd

Unfortunately, as of right now, there is only minimal parking for just a few cars due to snow in the parking lane, camping areas are limited, and the pathways down to the put-in are going to be hazardous for boaters due to snow/ice cover.

Weather for this weekend is going to be relatively cool so melt-off is not likely.

I'm trying to keep this a fun first of the season run for people and have lots of time on the course for practice and competition, but, we'll need to wait for next weekend.

If you can't make next weekend, let me know and I can transfer your registration to the Punchbrook or refund your money, whatever works for you.

If you have questions, don't hesitate to contact me

I'm not Pete, the race chairman, so this isn't "official," but in case he doesn't respond before tomorrow I can assure you that the whole shebang - Friday course set-up, Sat. clinic & open practice, and Sunday race - is all postponed until next weekend.

yes, of course the whole SHE-BANG will happen next weekend.

And because we were going to run on St Pat's day, how about wearing some green to commemorate the day?

Hey guys
Have gotten a few registration changes for next weekend which reminds me ..... we organizers are really interested in promoting kids involvement in whitewater sport

If you think you can bring some youngsters along to race with you, please do!
Am willing to make some concessions to get them involved, like if you want to try a tandem open canoe class, put the kid in front of you in a short/medium boat and I won't blink an eye, I'll only charge you the single adult class fee, the youngster will be n/c.

This coming weekend, you are going to see some of our up and coming racers from the East Coast Junior Olympics with us

And remember, young men like Casey Eichfeld and Rick Powell, Olympian paddlers in the last 2 Olympics, started out here in NESS when they were around age 5 or so paddling with their folks.
Your son, daughter, niece or nephew or neighbor could be following their paddle strokes

How 'bout it?

Best'
Pete
