This is the Is Saturday the day for Boulder Drop?? discussion thread. Please post any questions below.

Remember the actual Trip Details are located on the Is today the day for Boulder drop?? | Trip Page

There is a certain somebody that I know that may make her first attempt on Boulder Drop on Saturday.  That is, if she can still walk, sit and hold a paddle after cycling in RAMROD tomorrow (Thursday).

We are meeting at 10AM to allow time for 2 laps of the upper section of the Sky before we need to get back to Seattle.

Come on out and join us for a fun day in the sun.

Good luck!  We'd love to be there, but we will be camping up towards Baker Lake.  Have fun and smile for the camera!

I'm in, I need to stay in the area and would like to see Deborah style BD. 
If anyone is interested I'd be up for running laps on BD, maybe we can see how many routes we can take.

Hey Arn,
 
Count me in!  (minus BD, anyway)  There's a very good chance Patty is in, too.
 
Looking forward to paddling w/ you and Deborah again.

John (Patty),
The upper section @ 1500 or so will be a great level for Patty to run it the first time.  She'll have lots of fun!

Tom,
I think the first time down, I want to take Deborah through airplane turn.  After that, I'm game to try another route - Needle or Ned's depending what looks best.  Should be a fun day!

Arn,
 
Count me in.. Gotta walk around BD, but I love this section. Want to get as much in as I can before the levels goes too low. So its spilt rock at 10?
Flip, rinse, repeat.

I ran laps on Sunday.  I finally beat down the boulder.  Persistance does pay.

Deborah styled it!  I think that Steve did it successfully for his first time as well but I'm not sure.

Josh - Glad to hear that you stuck it to the man!

We should make t-shirts to commemorate all the PP'ers who did boulder for the first time this year.
