BullerFest 2007, 2-4 March


7 February 2007: Ben Jackson writes to say BullerFest 2007 is on 2-4 March. The Extreme Race is on 2 March on the Lower Matakitaki, open to any who can paddle class III safely. Mike Abbot will be presenting a slide show on Friday evening about his recent expedition to India with a ‘how to’ on expedition planning. Saturday 3 has the Kayak Slalom on O’Sullivans Rapid. There will be novice, open and vet categories so everyone can get involved. The Rafter X is also at O’Sullies. Saturday night is the infamous ‘Rock the Buller’ party at the Aorangi Hall (same as last year). Wicked Draw are lined up to play with some faster things in store later on. Sunday 4 is the Big Air competition and prize giving. Update 7 March: Lots of photos of the Slalom, Rafts & Big Air action from Bullerfest this weekend for your viewing pleasure at Competitors, please download your photos by 6 April because they have to come down to make way for the Teva River Festival on the Kawarau over Easter.
