Saturday night – kid’s Scavenger Hunt, the Clive Lister Memorial Toast, potluck dessert chowdown and a musical jamfest (bring your musical instrument, your lawn chair and your own plate, fork, and cup).
Sunday – Slalom race. This race is part of the Northwest Cup Series; don’t miss out on points for the 2015 season! This race is NOT just for race boats. Plastic boats have their own class and even their own trophies. Never tried slalom before? This is a good time and place to give it a go.
Location: The event is held at the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest Salmon la Sac campground. The slalom site is right outside the campground. The campground is perfect for kids and non-paddling family members, too. Hiking, mountain biking and road biking opportunities are right there.
Camping: The Salmon la Sac campground has SOME first-come, first-served sites available, but most can be reserved and they MAY go fast.
