Adam Kemp, international artist and sculptor who is fabricating the facility is still making progress on construction and is now being assisted by ENDracing's Caleb Kobilansky. Although things are slower than we'd like, they are moving in the right direction! We'll keep you posted. In the meantime, check out some of the press we recieved recently down in Fargo: http://www.kvrr.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=27983&Itemid=57
The weather has caused both high water and delays. The river is expected to be above flood stage into next week at least. Construction has also been hampered as welding isn't really a wet weather activity. We're still plugging along and want to get this thing open ASAP too (let's get some cooperation mother nature!) We may be able to offer some SUP intro classes even before the facility is done, so stay tuned as the water drops.
The Boathouse on the Red will not rent watercraft or conduct fitness classes when the river is at flood stage. As such, the Tuesday intro to SUP and SUP fit (preseason) sessions for early next week have been canceled. As of now we plan to have only one session next week (thursday, June 26th), and additional preseason sessions on July 1st and July 3rd. Remember, preseason sessions are first come, first served and only $5. We'll start 4 week sessions the second week in July, which will open for online preregistration by the end of the month.
