Western Whitewater Championship Series - III

Posted Nov 25 2009 10:03pm

Western Whitewater Championship Series 2010

The WWCS began 3 seasons ago when the Oregon Rafting Team (ORT) began to take on an active role in coordinating the dates of races and festivals in the Western United States. This coming season ORT will provide a scoring summary on their website which receives approximately 4000 hits annually. Prizes are awarded, and a regional representative is then nominated for both national and international levels of competition which at this time occurs only in the paddle raft racing category. In 2010 the WWCS R6 paddle raft champion will be nominated to compete in Costa Rica, an event which will take place in October of 2011 on the Reventazun and Pacuare Rivers.

The past two seasons, WWCS events have each drawn 45-105 competitors annually, in addition to a significant number of spectators, logistical supporters, and sponsors. Event coordinators are currently seeking a sponsor specific to the WWCS. This sponsor’s name would be directly linked in all promotions to the WWCS name and tradition. The WWCS represents the soul of competitive whitewater activities. We are paddlers, river lovers, and real people who wish to develop and nurture our respective river communities. Please contact Tim Brink if you wish to support our efforts.
