Mother Nature has cooperated and the White Salmon River is at a great level for racing on the Green Truss section! There has been a lot of discussion as to where the extreme race will be and yes it is going to be from above Bobs Falls to below Double Drop this Saturday, July 19, 2008 (Men’s and Women’s Categories).

For Saturday’s race, we’ll be holding a qualifier Friday below BZ Falls on the Maytag section of the White Salmon (put in for the Middle -Men’s, Women’s, and Junior, Categories). Sorry if this is inconvenient for you but it’s what we could get from the Forrest Service and what works for the raft companies. On Saturday after the extreme race there will be a head to head Boater Cross Race on the same stretch as the trials race (Men’s, Women’s, and Junior, Categories). We will have a $1000 cash purse for prize money split between the Down River Extreme Race and the Boater Cross.

We will have same day registration but we might run out of space so register on line at Gorgegames.net. If you want to compete in the Truss Race (Down River Extreme Race) only register for the qualifier. No need to register for the Truss Race as you’ll be registered when you qualify.
