Impros BBSD7 - Official Announcement
We’re planning our little river trip again and we’d love to have you join us…BBSD7! Let’s do this!
Come join us for the 7th Annual Impros Blythe Bound Smack Down (“BBSD”), May 19th and 20th 2012 at Twin Palms Resort, Blythe CA. Everyone is welcome.
Once again we’re going to do our best to top last year’s get together. We have several great companies stepping up to help sponsor the free dinner Saturday night, as well as providing a huge list of great raffle prizes. With the great response we received from our sponsors as well as all of our friends that came out last year, we will again have great prizes to give away, with more expected to be announced later. As a result, we’ll be able to help provide support to this year’s charity- The Riverbend Volunteer Fire Company in Blythe. We are hoping to do what we can to help support the local Blythe public servants- afterall, with all of the Pyro's we get it can't hurt to have them on our side!
We’d like to start by showing our appreciation to the companies that have stepped up to support BBSD and the charity. It’s these types of companies that help keep our industry going. With these companies all contributing to BBSD7, we will have prizes totaling well over $3,000.

Impros Blythe Bound Smack Down is simply a fun get together. A fun weekend at the river for all of us to ride, meet, break bread and enjoy a day at the river with friends. Also a chance for us to give personal thanks- if it weren’t for great people like you, Impros wouldn’t exist. It doesn’t matter if you ride a stand up, or prefer a sit down, bring it! If you want to run buoys with friends (old and new), bring it! If you just want to hang out and chow on some free food, WE got it! Impros will be hosting free dinner for Saturday night for everyone in attendance. There are full hook-ups at this camping resort, and plenty of hotels available a few miles south in Blythe.
Once again, IPD (http://www.ipdjetskigraphics.com/) will be designing another great looking BBSD7 T-shirt. To keep us from ordering too many, we are asking that you pre-order your shirt. You can do this anytime, by visiting the following link: http://impros.com/store/index.php/apparel.html. When ordering, you can choose whether you want the shirt and ticket shipped to you before the event, or if you’d rather have us bring it to the event for you. The shirts will be printed two weeks before the event, and only a limited number will be available after the pre-order. The shirts and tanks are all $15, and as usual come with one free raffle ticket. Extra raffle tickets can be purchased when you order your shirt, plus we’ll have them available at BBSD. As it gets closer to the raffle, we’ll announce the prizes, but the prize list is already over $3,000 strong. Just a reminder, a portion of every t-shirt sold and the proceeds from the raffle tickets will go to the BBSD charity. Thanks again to all of our great supporters for such a great pool of prizes.
Ok, now the dirty little details:
1) This is NOT in any way, an organized event or sanctioned day. It is simply a “River Trip” for us, and we’re telling our friends. A way for everyone to meet new faces and say hello to our old friends too. PWC riding can be EXTREMELY dangerous! Some people, like us, even get hurt trying to burn meat on the BBQ. Impros, the contributing sponsors, Twin Palms Resort, or any of us for that matter are not responsible for your actions on the water, the beach or anywhere else at BBSD. We accept ZERO responsibility for injuries, death or too much fun resulting from riding on the river, drinking, or whatever you do to cut loose on your weekend.... Ride at your own risk!
2) Impros does not put out buoys and are not responsible for any that coincidently show up in the water. In the past, there have always been a few riders that bring some, but it’s at their own free will, and if you choose to ride around them, it’s at your own risk. It’s the Colorado River, and you’re free to do what you want (for the most part anyway), and we hope that you have a great, safe time, but act responsibly. Nevertheless, it’s our advice that you should bring and wear a helmet if you choose to ride on anyone’s course.
3) We have also spoken with the owner of the resort, and he is excited to have us back. All he asks is that everyone entering his property check in at the office/general store and get either a day-use parking or camping permit.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Just curious, is there just one paved ramp on the Twin Palms' property that EVERYONE uses, or is there random offroad launching going on too? If all goes well, I plan to get there pretty damn early Sat morning...but still, I'm trying to gauge what it is I'll be getting myself into. I've looked at random pics in FB and impros' website, but still haven't gotten a feel for the whole launch/parking situation. Looks like a fair amount of crowd will be there (?).
I'll wait till last minute to pick out a room somewhere because i just never get nervous about all that...and thats if I even bother with a hotel. And, if I do skip on hotel room, I'd like to know if I could get away with sleeping in the truck anywhere around the general surrounding area?
