Registration fee will include a minimum $5 donation to the local Ohiopyle fire department and can be done day of at the check-in table.

5:45pm: volunteer/safety meeting on the front porch of WV

6:15pm: racer safety meeting on the mulch at the put-in 630p: mass start race

BOAT CATEGORIES: Short, Long, Race, and Inflatables. What’s the definition of a ‘short boat’? Not a long boat. In other words, we’re not imposing the 9′ limit, but be cool and don’t push the boundaries. A half-slice at 9′ 4″ is fine (e.g., large Rewind), but a full creeker closer to 10′ is not OK. The boat length rule is: be cool, don’t be uncool. {stolen/edited from top yough race).

The race category consists of speeders, wavehoppers, and Wildwater boats. Again, the rule for this category is: be cool, don’t be uncool.
