Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Riverhouse Kayak Race Returns

Posted By on Thu, Mar 11, 2010 at 7:51 PM

A whitewater park in Bend may still be a few years out, but that isn't stopping paddling enthusiasts from celebrating their sport this month. Paddlers announced this week that they are preparing to host the second annual Riverhouse Run slalom championships on Sunday, March 28. The contest begins at 10 a..m outside its namesake venue on the Deschutes in Bend and is expected to draw competitors from around Oregon and Washington.

"The Riverhouse is such an amazing venue to have a race like this because spectators can watch the paddlers up close," said Bert Hinkley, who, along with Alder Creek Kayak owner Geoff Frank, helped to revive the Riverhouse Rendezvous after a prolonged absence.

The one-day race is part of the Northwest Cup slalom series,  a free race competition which is sponsored by the NW Whitewater Racers For more information on the race, contact Geoff, at geoff@aldercreek.com , or Bert at bert@webskis.com.

On the subject of local whitewater, here are some great images from the Middle Deschutes that were recently posted on Yahoo's bendpaddler list serve.
