December 2-3, 2017

BULL RUN SLALOM is ON for December 2-3, 2017 near Sandy, Oregon! This is the last race of the season.

Director, David Johnson reports that "We have water, perhaps too much water, but the race at the BR will go forward this weekend. Several of us will be on there at 10 am Sat moving some gates and practicing. Then we will meet about 10 am on Sunday for the race. A low key event to be sure. So, if you arrive there and no one is in the parking lot, know that we are inside the gate. You can access the BR power plant by going in through the front gate, which has a padlock on one side and I will leave that unlocked. Come down the road to the bottom by a metal shed and you can lower you boat down to the river along a wooden scaffold and climb down. We may not stick around past about 2 pm if we do not know you are coming. So, if you are coming from parts distant email me with your ETA". johnsoda7@gmail.com
Last time the race was held in April 2017, there were just eight racers and now three of those folks are injured...... or just afraid of the big water!


Be on the look-out for Stolen Boating Gear!

Fellow PNW racers Esther and Steve had their trailer, raft, K-2, and RPM

stolen in early July near Yakima, WA.

See attached for details.

Thanks for any help!
