Got the go-ahead for the Special Use Permits. They say the Jerome Access will be open. But..... if not this race will be 36 miles to Bell Chute.   

Now if I can just get a beer sponsor. Working with the Piney River Beer people but nothing definitive yet. Very fitting being that the race goes right by both the BIG Piney and little piney rivers.

SYOTR has also helped out. You'll have to be one of the first 20 registered to find out how.

The Jerome Access is open for business once again. The race is a go for the 20-21 mile course. Thanks to the efforts of the Missouri Department of Conservation.

The river has more water than last year and the weather is going to be Awesome.

Saturday is the day.

From StL or Springfield exit interstate 44 at Y highway in St. Robert (I think it's the one at Cracker Barrel)

From KC highway 50 to Tipton then 5 south toward Versailles east on 52 to Tuscumbia then south on 17 to St. Robert interstate  44 east to highway Y

From Columbia / Jefferson City take 63 south to 28 south through Dixon right on highway O. Take that to the river turn left on cave road.

I'm planning on heading down to the race from St. Louis. Anybody else going and want to caravan? It might be nice to have a car at the finish for logistics! Or even pre-shuttle if there is time!

Send me a PM or call/text.

I have a few newbies that might be interested in this race, anymore details on the race? This would be a great one for most of them. Thanks

This is great race on the Gasconade river. It's 20 Miles of ozark river with some swifter water about knee deep and some ponding that barely moves. Depending on the water level of course. The scenery is spectacular. Public access start and finish lines, with a mile long view of paddlers as they approach the finish line.

Brian - Sounds really cool, I have done the race in the past and enjoyed it. Do you have the start times figured out?

Thanks - Kirk

Really enjoyed your race on the Gas last year. The Outdoor race is on your race date. Any way to make your race Sunday or a different Saturday. Your putting it on so its your call.
Thanks Mike

Stay tuned. The water is below the top of the ramp in Jerome but.... the access is closed and needs a lot of work.

Post by brian and marilyn on 05/29/17 at 21:35:51
Doesn't look like the Jerome access will be open any time soon. It is an absolute mess. I'm going to call this week to see how hard it is to get the start and stop locations changed to  a few accesses that are open.

Title: Re: The GAS June 17th, 2017
Post by brian and marilyn on 06/01/17 at 22:54:35
The Gas is On! 

Had to move the start to Schlicht Springs and the finish line to Riddle Bridge.

Both are M.D.C. public access locations. 

Let's do this!

Paddlers guide says 24. I am going to do the course tomorrow if any one wants to tag along. I want to make sure there are no snags. Going to take a saw and some rope just in case.

Post by brian and marilyn on 06/04/17 at 09:08:10
Marilyn and  I paddled the 24 miles yesterday and it is clear. Keep in mind that the course has changes from previous years. Due to the Jerome access being closed because of the recent flood.

Starting at Schlicht Springs Access

7am registration
8:30 safety briefing
9am start

Ending at Riddle Bridge Access

My husband and I would like to do this one.  Can we assume that, since the start and stop are so close together that we can find a ride back to our vehicle? 

Title: Re: The GAS June 17th, 2017

We will take care of any body as best we can.

But being the race director as well comes with responsibility.

If anyone comes to this race and needs a shuttle we will make sure you get back to your ride. That being said... It might be after awards.  Also at the beginning of the race we will ask for volunteers to move vehicles and / or assist with shuttle.

Title: Re: The GAS June 17th, 2017
Post by brian and marilyn on 06/14/17 at 21:55:50
We are hoping for some rain. The river is getting low. But have no fear this race is ON!  The reason for this update is to warn racers of the current water level. But the river gage at Hazelgreen does not account for the water added at Schlicht Springs or the springs along the way as well as the Roubidoux river/spring.   I would love to see a good turnout of aluminum canoes and plastic boats.

Title: Re: The GAS June 17th, 2017
Post by Yippee on 06/15/17 at 09:16:26
Fabulous.  We will try to get there early enough to be part of the vehicle shuttling.
