Willow Creek Whitewater Festival is pushed back to June 15 & 16 due to the fact that it is still winter here.

James- Any clue how bad the wood situation is on Willow? Do we need to do some chainsaw work before the season starts?

John- Guardrail is fine, but Redgate has about 5 or 6 sweepers with multiple trunks starting at wavetrain on down. Andy, Phillip and I went in a month ago
To do some cutting, but the snow and ice was 10-15 feet thick (super cold early season with no snow = Lots of overflow). Another reason the festival is pushed
back is we need time to clear it all out. Give me a call and we can set up some days to work( it may take more than one).
