This was the best weekend I've had in a long, long time! 3 Bailey runs in 3 days...perfect. Thanks to all that supported the massage table action! It was a hit and will certainly make an appearance next year.

Great weekend with 200 great people! Awesome!

Thanks for the feedback guys. Chad is the Oskar Blues Contact we worked with out of the 3 emails that Russ linked.

Matt's mentioned that it could be a thankless job, but thats not the case here. I got more thank yous, high fives, hand shakes, nice works, well dones, and great jobs in one weekend that probably the sum total of the previous decade. The thanks and positive feedback were phenomenal.

To me the real reward of putting on bailey fest is the deep satisfaction of figuring it out and getting it done. Its like running a huge drop for the first time, nailing it, and it feels so good.

Such an awesome weekend. A big thanks to Ian for tireless coordination, Bart for generous use of his land, Jeff Co for a great takeout park, Oskar Blues for so much good beer, Jackson for the boats, Confluence, et. al. for financial support, the various Bailey landowners for tolerating our scouting and Denver for "turning on the tunnel!"
