Considering the river levels projected for Saturday are there updates regarding the Spring 12?  Is the flooding going to affect the race? Are the boat ramps clear? Is the race still on? Please advise

Osage Spring 12 Condition Update...
Okay everyone here's the plan for this Saturday.
The forecasted MO River level at Jefferson City will put the Bonnots Mill ramp under water for sure. While right at flood stage the Mari Osa ramp will be clear & workable. So we're going to move both the start & finish lines to Mari Osa. Good news here is no need for shuttling. We're setting up an up & back two buoy turn 4 mile course that racers will do two laps for total of 8 miles. Male & female SUP & novice racers will make only one loop for a total of 4 miles. This will make for great spectating & the ability to cheer on your favorite paddler.
The river should have little to no current due to the MO backing up into the Osage. Bagnell Dam is also slowing generation from 32,000 CFS today, 19000 CFS tomorrow and 4000 CFS on Friday & through the weekend.
It'll basically be like paddling flat water.
We'll still be serving hot whole hog sandwiches & doing the MR 340 raffle drawing.
