The Bull Run races is postponed again. It seems the flows aren't quite enough to warrant a race on the course. We hope to reschedule for May, stay tuned for updates.
It appears the predicted flow for Bull Run will be in the 400 range this weekend which is too low. So the race has been postponed to the following weekend. We will post updates as we find out more.
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.
Happy New Year everybody. Looks like things are getting ready to get started. The 2015 race schedule is up, so make sure you mark you calendars and get out there and practice!
