Riverhouse Kayak Race Returns 

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.
