The Golden Games
May 20, 2016 - May 22, 2016
This event is a 3 day celebration of music and adventure sports for the outdoor community, May 20 – 22. Athletes from across the US rally to Golden for this three day weekend. Events are centered in and around the Golden Whitewater Park and Lions Park. Now in it’s 6th year, The Golden Games continues to grow and host a variety of adventure sports, live music, demos, clinics, gear swaps and more. Adventure Sports to be highlighted include white water kayaking, stand up paddleboarding (SUP), fly fishing, slack lining, freestyle rodeo, kayak slalom racing, and more.
There are over $2,000 in prizes to be given away in both our pro and an amateur fly fishing contests. It’s a fun day with a BBQ included. If you don’t wish to compete, being a controller is really fascinating way to shadow an angler on clear Creek for two hours, measure his fish, see how he approaches the river, and the bugs he chooses. You can check it all out and register to compete or volunteer at www.thegoldengames.com, or call John Harcourt 303-548-5881
West Denver TU will have a booth promoting our conservation efforts. The Golden Games fishing contest is sponsored by Arbor Anglers of Golden.
