Hello CDBA Membership and Racers, 

I'm writing to  inform you that the August 27th and 28th High Desert Showdown at Haystack Reservoir is cancelled.

Your CDBA Board met Tuesday the 26th, to discuss our options for the 2022 High Desert Showdown. With only 1 month to the event weekend, water levels are currently too low with no major change in sight. The ramp and portions of the right lane out of the water. 

After conversations with governing officials and pulling data from online sources, the CDBA Board finds it highly unlikely water levels will adequately recover to hold the race. 

Out of respect for the time and responsibilities of our racers, crews, and staff, your CDBA Board voted to cancel the 2022 High Desert Showdown.

We encourage members to still get together August 27 and 28th and have a great time. If you change plans, don't forget to cancel your KOA reservations so they can refill your spot. 

We look forward to seeing you all in September at the Northwest Nationals!
