Is there a ball this year? At least an informal one? Perhaps just a race on lower icicle and beer drinking?

Well since my burn has only been on 4 runs in the last 6 months and only 2 were creeks I don't think anyone would argue with you on that jp. I will however see you this weekend on the sunny side...

Oh and slick please take this filter off!!

Why no advertising for the ball? Trying to keep it small?

I'll be there, shoulder injury is finally better. I didn't really expect advertising, just surprised there wasn't a page on PP.com

Fire & Water, plus Fire-Water. Its the PPeeps that make this event. All of the sponsers are great organizations too, but the swag ain't critical so much as the collective stoke.

Flows are boosting back up, too according to the usual forcasts...

Gotta ask: what day is the Icicle Creek Race? I hope it is sunday because saturday is not lookin good for me.

We haven't decided on the race time. It's usually Saturday so people dont have to race with a hangover. I guess at worst we'll decide friday night.

Well in years past plenty o peeps have been just as hungover on saturday morning as they are on The Lord's Day. Just sayin. My vote is sunday so I can participate, but yall do what seems prudent. Not the prudent would exactly be the right word.

No stealin' pallets from orchards, kids! Now, that's some prudent advice.

Do it Sunday!!! Please. I would love to participate in the race....will be driving back from Idaho Saturday.
If not, have a good race and see ya all next year.
FYI, there is a Wenatchee downriver race saturday through the river fest. That would make for a race each day for those interested.
Anywyas....

Sunday!!!
Cant get their till sat. night.
Last year we went Sunday and I recall a similar outcome to years past:
1. Darren wins (regardless if the race is Saturday, Sunday or yesterday)

2. Some how Joe Howard ends up launching after me again and I spend the whole race looking over my shoulder cursing at how fast he can make up a minute on me.

That's three votes for Sunday.
Come on, everyone: weigh in early or concede to sunday. So far 100% of the input is for sunday (Icicle crk race).

Plus we gotta stay true to this year's previously stated goal to mesh w/ the riverfest activities, most of which occur on saturday.

Posting on here was on my laundry list of ToDos…checked and done.

Yes, festivities on and off the river (WRF) are happening this weekend. The forecast looks good, mid 80s-sunny and level at 9000+.

The paddling community and local businesses are very generous and inspirational. Clinic instruction and gear for the silent auction and raffle have been donated; all proceeds go to AW.

We hope there is something for everyone: yoga, clinics, demos, races and competitions, music, BBQ and beer, and a fundraising raffle and silent auction. Friday play is at Rodeo Hole and Saturday events are all over the river.

 Please traverse the WRF website for info: http://wenatcheeriverfestival.org

·         Marion Lodato, yoga instructor from Snowcreek Health is teaching an early morning session,

·         Wet Planet is instructing the downriver kayak clinic,

·         Jean Luc Robichaux/World Kayak is teaching the playboat clinic and running the Rodeo,

·         Wave Trek is teaching a rescue clinic and giving a demo,

·         LMS is sponsoring the SUP clinics and races,

·         RiverBooty is running the rafting events,

·         Cashmere Crossfit will be on hand to motivate you to keep on truckin,

·         Cascade Canoe and Kayak is grilling grub for the BBQ,

·         New Belgium Beer has donated the effervescence,

·         Justice for All will be playing the twang in the form of Bluegrass/Americana.

·         And I hope more hula hoopers will get their swing on.

Auction includes gear from: Confluence (wavesport Diesel 80), Werner Paddles, Snapdragon, PaddleEcuador, OR, Smith, Keen, smoked local salmon, private kayak lessons and more.

Raffle includes items from local businesses that make good food, Mountain Khakis, OR, NWOC and gear that LMS and Riverbooty are keeping secret.

Looking forward to gathering and celebrating what we all love and supporting AW- who are in the trenches.  

I think I was more literary than necessary, that JP guy influences, but no one can come close to his prose.
