Hello everyone! I am happy to announce that the Gorge Huckfest is returning this year. The format is shifting a bit but the theme is the same: Big Air!

When: The weekend of August 31/Sep 1st
Where: Stevenson, WA. East Point Kite Launch

If interested in either participating or spectating please respond below (and if a Facebook user) please sign up as going or interested ASAP and feel free to spread the word to your friends! Pre-registration will be opening soon!

Event Details:
We will be using a panel of judges and crowd response to evaluate height and style. This also keeps riders close to the spectators for much better viewing and photo/video opportunity. Riders will compete in heats with the top spots advancing.

Divisions:
Strapless Freestyle
Foil-style
TT women's
TT men's
TBD as necessary: masters, groms, pro/amateur divisions.

Event Amenities:
-Photo/videographers to capture the event and the action
-TACOS PEPE from Stevenson will be at our event selling delicious Mexican food!
-Alcohol will not be sold as part of the event.
-Restrooms are available on-site
-You!

Prize Structure and Raffle:
-All competitors will receive an event Tee and raffle tickets, possibly more as sponsors come aboard!
-Competitors will battle it out for pride, unique trophies, and prizes (non-monetary).
-The bulk of the prizes will be raffled off, as it was last year.
-Raffle tickets will be available to everyone to purchase.
-Funds in excess of event cost will be donated to Project Koru or the CGW2. This is not a fundraiser, but it's not a for-profit event.
-We have a LOT of shwag coming in from our generous community and kite brands. Be sure to thank them next time you bump into your local rep or stop into their shops!

SPONSORS - HUGE THANKS:
DAKINE

Super fun event, bummed I'll miss it.

Darren puts in a lot of time to make big boosting from Stevenson's front row seating venue a great time.

Hope the wind is just lit for you guys.

PostTue Aug 06, 19 1:31 pm    Jon Malmberg's memorial and Huckfest Reply with quote

FYI:

I am aware of the memorial event for Jon Malmberg on Aug 17 hat the Hood River marina. I believe this takes precedence over the Huckfest event. As such I will be working the Huckfest event schedule around the memorial event, which starts at noon. As more details come forth regarding his event I will make announcements and changes to schedule as necessary. This may mean holding only a few or no heats on August 17 and compressing it into Aug 18th, or pushing the event to the backup weekend of Aug 31/Sep 1.
