Saturday night 

· NOTE: Traditional Kid's Scavenger Hunt Organizer needed 

· Bring your musical instrument, your lawn chair, a dessert or drink if you’re so inclined and your own plate, fork, and cup. All happening at campsite 004. 


Sunday - Slalom race. 

· This race is NOT just for race boats. Plastic boats and open boats have their own class and even their own trophies. 

· Never tried slalom before? This is a good time and place to give it a go. 


Camping: The Salmon la Sac campground has BOTH first-come, first-served sites and reservable sites available, but last I checked, showed all reservable sites taken, so show up as early as possible and grab a site. Or share. Sorry I can’t save a site for you. 

: On-water participation – Saturday only or both Saturday and Sunday is $20.00 per person. More than one race class is an additional $5.00. There will be separate classes based on age, gender, and type of boat. The prizes (there are many winners at SLS!) are really cool this year; don’t miss out. 

How to Get There: 
Navigate I-90 east of Seattle and exit at Roslyn. Drive 

through town (the whole place is a speed trap and stays a speed trap until 

you get to the campground: Beware!) to the end of the road, and there you 

are at both the race site and campground. 

Need more info? or Contact Race Director, Jennie at:  or 206-713-0520. No cell service at the campground – I’m heading up Thursday afternoon May 30th.
