    Folks –

    3+ inches of rain didn’t happen, so we are good to go.  But it may be wet & rainy on Saturday.

    Setup starts at 10:00 am Sat 12 March – meet at Millstream parking lot.  Bring gloves & wire cutters, sturdy shoes, lunch & water & DRESS FOR WET WEATHER.  Plus boating gear.  Should be reasonably warm though.

    Chuck & Di are going to pickup gear at the storage shed early.  We will form teams at the parking lot at Millstream & deploy gear to the gate locations, which will be marked by Chuck & Di ahead of time.  Radios will be issued to teams on both sides of the river.

    Always need folks on River Right, so plan to bring boating gear to join the RRT (River Right Team).

    We’ll set up all the wires, including the finish line.  Maybe a few gates for slalom clinic.  Rest of gates & other race gear (tent, sales table, etc) get setup on Friday 18 March (also starting at 10:00 am).

    Previous experience is not necessary – plenty of set-up veterans – we will train you on-site!

    Slalom clinic led by Joe Sartori after set-up is done.

    Camping at the group site at Silvermines after boating, dinner.  Adult beverages.  WE ALSO HAVE THE GROUP SITE RESERVED FOR FRIDAY NIGHT for early campers.

    SAFETY WARNING:  Whenever you clip a wire, be sure to bend the ends down – otherwise the wire is a hazard to eyes, as the spooled wire sometimes flails around.

    SYOTR!

    while you are in the Fredericktown area, fill your gas tank.  It’s 40-50 cents cheaper than St. Louis right now.

     

    Also – keep an eye on the weather, & the message board for additional set-up announcements, if needed.
