Sponsored by Rocky Mountain Rafts
RULES + REGULATIONS
All teams must have a minimum of 3 rafters and a maximum of 5 rafters.
From bridge to bridge slalom course while navigating set slalom gates in the water.
Exactly which gates will be discussed in competitors meeting.
Any gate touched will result in a 30 second penalty.
Gates missed will results in 1:00 second penalties.
Everyone on the raft team will have to go around the gate pole. If any one team member misses the gate, it is considered a miss. You can renegotiate the gate if needed but everyone has to go through to negate the miss. If the gate is touched it is still a touch.
If you miss the finish line eddy before bridge, you and your team can carry back up for a time. If you go down and miss eddy below bridge you are disqualified.
All rafters have to be inside raft upon finish line. I said in, not beside the raft!!!!
