Frisco, CO — May 2007 — KODI Rafting today announced its schedule for the Two Hour Happy Hour™ on Ten Mile Creek, the newest commercially-run river in the State of Colorado. The Ten Mile Creek trip is an intense six mile, Class IV run, dropping 110 feet per mile, starting at Officers Gulch, and finishing up at the Frisco Bay Marina.

In spring of 2006, KODI owner Christian “Campy” Campton began the process of applying to obtain a permit to commercially raft on Ten Mile Creek. Approval was received from the Frisco Town Council as well as the Dillon Reservoir Recreation Committee (DRReC) last May, however, the Forest Service approval was not authorized until this past Friday.

KODI Rafting is the only commercial rafting company to have received approval to raft on Ten Mile Creek. The permit for 2007 is temporary and is valid for 10 launches only.

“The Two Hour Happy Hour™ is an exiting, exhilarating trip - literary, right in our back yard,” says Campton. “We are excited for the opportunity to show locals and visitors what great whitewater we have right here in Frisco. We decided on the happy hour concept so that locals could experience the trip without having to take a day off work. They just need to leave an hour early.”

Due to the permit stipulations (ten launch maximum, one launch per day, four rafts per launch, four guests per raft), space is limited on the Two Hour Happy Hour™ to a total of 160 guests for the 2007 season. The inaugural trip is scheduled for Monday, June 4th. The other nine trip dates are June 5th, 6th, 7th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 18th and 20th, and are subject to change based on water levels. The trip will meet at 4:00 pm and will finish up at the new Island Grill, at the Frisco Bay Marina.

KODI Rafting requires that all participants are in good physical condition, and have previous paddling experience for this trip. Minimum age for this trip is 16. Cost for the trip is $75/person and includes the river trip, use of gear (wetsuits, booties and splash tops) and appetizers at The Island Grill after the trip. Happy Hour pricing and drink specials are also included. There is an additional 11% use fee charged by the Forest Service and DRReC.
