AW Bailey Fest 2012 is right around the corner. Bailey Fest is a whitewater festival near Denver, CO centered around a "planned release" of whitewater into the North Fork of the South Platte. Bailey Fest is Aug 10-12, 2012. We will have water in a drought year, a fantastic campground / fest site on a private meadow right along the North Fork, and great paddling on the class IV/V Bailey run, a CO classic creek run. Bailey Fest will also host the Supermax Showdown... the sickest foamie creekboating race out there. Foamies will race on a 16ft long scale model I built of the biggest class V rapid on Bailey called Supermax. Foamies will race in heats of 4 with tons of prizes from our sponsors.
If any of you have an itch to roll to Colorado, or are looking for something to do right after OR, come on down to Bailey Fest.
Also... Huge props to Lisa for sharing knowledge from Feather Fest to help me make Bailey Fest even bigger.
