the Sierra Club
San Francisco Bay Chapter
River Touring Section
Location and Directions: At Yolo County Middle Site Campground West of Sacramento and Woodland on Hwy 16. Take Hwy 16 Exit from either Hwy 5 or Hwy 505 and drive past the small towns of Guinda and Rumsey to the Yolo County Middle Site Campground.
Registration: Will be open until Saturday at 5:00 pm. There will be no registration on Sunday or after 5:00 pm on Saturday. The slalom course will be open for registered participants for practice all day Saturday. Should you wish to practice and not race, a donation of time, goods, or money would be appreciated.
CAMP RIGHT AT RACE SITE
The downriver race is Saturday afternoon at 1:00 PM. Sunday morning at 9:30 AM is our special event, the parent/child team race. The child and parent will race as a team, child first, then parent. Both must finish within 15 seconds of each other. Immediately afterwards, the regular slalom race will start. The slalom race will have categories for expert, intermediate, novice and masters (over 40) for men and women as well as juniors and cadets. There are categories for canoes, kayaks, and inflatables. Don’t think that this is a race just for fiberglass race boats. Plastic boaters are welcome!
Camping: We will have a group campsite, Campsite A (just across from the barn), free for early registrants until filled. Additionally, individual campsites are available for $18 a night at the county park on a first come first serve basis. There are no restaurants or motels nearby, so plan accordingly. For those not wishing to camp, there are a couple of B&B's and a casino within 20 miles of the race.
Volunteers: Help is needed to help set up the course on Friday, April 30. Volunteers are also needed for registration on Saturday and scoring on Sunday.
