Towards the end of our first run, we came across a Grumman canoe that was folded around a rock. Everyone was safe but the boat was pinned pretty well. There were three paddlers eddied out behind the rock trying to get the canoe unpinned. We caught the eddy behind the pinned boat and hoped out.
The Zoar Outdoor Demo Fest begins tomorrow so I'll be there in the Wave Sport booth and will be helping out with mini clinics. There's still some room in mini clinics so sign up now and if you have wanted to demo a Recon, Mobius, Ethos Diesel, and Fuse they will be there to try for FREE!
The Friday before the race, which was on Sunday, I play boated a little in the hole and then helped to set up the course. I was a little too excited for June and decided to paddle without any sort of rash guard or bug spray, and just in my bathing suit.
