Update 4/7/15

The results from the Riverhouse Slalom event are posted.  So far, the Riverhouse Slalom Race is in the lead for the most participants for the 2015 NW Whitewater Cup Series!  Over 50 runs were posted and 42 people signed up and many paddled more than one class. We even had Junior boaters from Canada. 

Good coverage by the local Bend paper:

Also the Bull Run Slalom Race is scheduled for April 19th with a practice date of  April 18th.  This race is very flow dependant (Goldilocks, not too high, not too low) so we will be watching the flow and making the call on April 16th.  Check out the full description here.
