Safety:
We are looking for qualified and willing volunteers to provide safety for participants on both sections.  Please contact us or sign up if you are interested.  Volunteering will also get you free admission to the event, not to mention the accrued river karma!
As a participant on the river we expect every participant to help (to the best of their ability) any other participant in trouble.  This should go with out saying, but any boater who does not attempt to help a fellow boater in need will not be allowed at the event.  Let's keep it clean, let's keep it safe!
Disclaimer:
All river rapids are serious, and consequential.  Serious injury and/or death are real consequences on the Smith River, or any other river.  BoatSmith is committed to running a safe and fun event.  If you have not run a certain section before, and/or do not have the experience/skill to do so, please refrain from the event. 
Be Safe, Come Home!
