Forgive me if i missed a post on this already... <BR> <BR><a href="http://liquidforce.com/brostock09.htm" target="_blank">http://liquidforce.com/brostock09.htm</a> <BR>June 12-14 <BR>Who is already planning on going? <BR>I am planning on going...as i am already here ;) <BR>I have been excited for it ever since the last one ended! <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>Last year the CR (Castle Rock) Cut opened up just barely on time with enough room to pass through, saving 10 miles of traveling distance through a washing-machine of a canyon. this year i expect there will be no problem getting through the cut. <BR>A private contractor WILL be dredging the cut starting NEXT WEEK to about 3,600 ft. above sea level which is about 15,000 sq. ft. of debris moved... (if i heard all the numbers right) if the lake goes down enough at the end of the year then the cut will be dredged another 100 ft or so. <BR> <BR>This is good news for Powell goers alike weather for bro stock or not. Finaly this IS GOING TO HAPPEN and not just be talked about!!!

I been to Powell many times and that Castle Rock cut is a god send. I am headed there in July and can't wait to make the cut through. <BR> <BR>It saves hours and tons of gas as opposed to going through the channel. <BR> <BR>Last time we were there, our houseboat broke down in the channel at high noon on a Saturday and we were stuck in a washing machine for about 2 hours. Luckily we saved ourselves from the rock walls somehow but my dog puked all over the houseboat after she got sea sick.

Every time a tourboat goes through that channel the "washing-machine" nearly goes to "SPIN" setting <BR> <BR>hehehe. <BR>i am partially glad i have never been houseboating... only slightly...

<a href="http://www.wakeworld.com/getarticle.asp?articleid=2065" target="_blank">http://www.wakeworld.com/getarticle.asp?articleid=2065</a> <BR> <BR>wow! sounds like a LARGE amount of $$$ will be up for grabs again. AND a wakeskate rail jam! i was half thinking the brostock might suffer a bit due to the economy woes... maybe not. maybe it will double in size AGAIN! I am really getting excited for this!
