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.

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.

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
