This weekend is the Bridge of the Gods in Stevenson. Here's some info you need:

Schedule:

Thursday-The 24 hour photo contest. Teams will have 24 hours to take a picture of the BOTG sticker doing any outside extreme sports. Stickers will be given out Wednesday night between 5-7pm at River City in Hood River. The slide show and results will happen Thursday at River City at 8pm. A ballot will decide the winner and if you would like to vote you need to be there before the start of the show. Prizes

Friday-The Pro Event. Pro men and women will compete in freestyle. We also have a pro mens strapless. We have some of the best riders in the world in town and it sounds like they are all willing to put it on the line. Show starts around 11 AM in Stevenson. Cold beer, food carts, RedBull girls, cash prizes, free Topo Chico, and more.

Saturday-The Amateur Day. Division will include: men, women, groms, mini groms, strapless (if enough interest) and masters. We have more prizes then ever before and some first time surprises. Show starts at 11AM but registration is between 9-10AM. Event will hopefully be over around 6pm. Cold beer, food carts, RedBull girls, kite gear prizes, free Topo Chico, and more.

Sunday-The Blowout. The race from Stevenson to Hood River. Open to all intermediate kiters and above. All racers will be put on teams at random. There will be free beer and food at the finish as well as a party. Everyone that enters will get a prize. Everyone. Be at Stevenson Kite Beach on Sunday between 10-11 for registration. Registration closes at 11AM. The race will likely start just after 1 and end around 2:30. The start is fun to watch. We will be splitting the after party with the Slider Jam in Hood River.

Hopefully you all can make it.

Good times at River City Saloon for the photo contest!

Here were my submissions, which earned 5th and 1st places, featuring Kite the Gorge's Carlos Cornieles and Tanner Rawlins.

Does anyone know what hours they're likely to compete today? How late will they go this evening? I have a conflict mid-afternoon, but may drive out there later.

Wind dependant. 13-18 now. Hopefully it will. Hold so the heats can start. Maybe a thermal kick in. Heats go as long as needed. Some great riders in town if the wind will blow a little . The strapless show should be sick!! A couple great ocean rodeo riders In Town from BC plus all the usual suspects Smile!!

The wind has dropped below competing levels and the event is postponed until tomorrow, Sunday. Unfortunately that means the Blowout race will be postponed until next Saturday with Sunday as a possible backup wind day. Sorry guys
