BLM seeks comment on proposed paddle board race at Rancho Del Rio

The Bureau of Land Management is seeking public comments on an application for a special recreation permit for a stand-up paddle board race on June 5 on the Colorado River at Rancho Del Rio.

The race, conducted by Gore Range Expeditions, LLC dba Stand Up Paddle Colorado, would be a part of the Campout for the Cause Music Festival taking place June 3-5 on private land at Rancho Del Rio. Up to 100 participants may compete in two events on Sunday, June 5. The short course race would start and finish at Rancho Del Rio and include two laps paddling upstream and back down around the islands adjacent Rancho Del Rio. The long course race would start at Rancho Del Rio and head downstream using the small craft ramp for takeout at State Bridge. Buoys would be temporarily placed in the river as course markers.

To provide comment on the application, contact Maribeth Pecotte at the BLM Kremmling Field Office at or 970-724-3027. Comments need to be received by May 25, 2016.
