Saturday night - kid's Scavenger Hunt, the Clive Lister toast, and a musical jamfest (bring your musical instrument).
Sunday June 8 - Slalom race. This race is part of the Northwest Cup Series; don't miss out on points for the 2013 season! This race is NOT just for race boats. Plastic boats have their own class and even their own trophies . A novice course will be available.
Cle Elum canyon and Cooper Creek runs for seasoned whitewater paddlers,
The whitewater slalom course is on moderate Class II rapids.
The downriver race is 4 miles long and Class II+. The sprint race will be just through the slalom course. You may participate in either or both!
Cost: Race entry fees are $25.00 per racer with a $5.00 discount to those with proof of current ACA membership. Additional race classes are $5.00 each per racer. There will be separate classes based on age, gender, and type of boat. The prizes (and everyone wins at SLS who participates!) are really cool this year; don’t miss out.
Location: The event is at the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest Salmon la Sac campground which is right at the slalom race site. It’s a perfect campground for kids and non-paddling family members, also. There is a camping fee. Hiking and Mountain biking opportunities are right there.
Camping: The Salmon la Sac campground has many first-come, first-served sites available, but there are also sites you can reserve.
How to Get There: Navigate I-90 east of Seattle and exit at Roslyn. Drive through town (the whole place is a speed trap and stays a speed trap until you get to the campground: Beware!) to the end of the road, and there you are at both the race site and campground.
Friday to hang the course and then on Saturday and Sunday for timing , judging, and scoring. No prior experience necessary. You, too, will get a coveted SLS momento! Contact Race Director, Jennie at: firstname.lastname@example.org
