Definitely could... unfortunately, for the Pine creek race, I've got more important things to protest these days.
But, hey, if some young enthusiastic boaters chose to do something like this I wouldn't object. But I would probably advise them to head a few more miles north of Pine Creek to go even bigger up there at Lake Creek.
Also, I'm simply proud of the past accomplishment and can let it go and allow it to transform into what it needs to be at this moment. My comment was just expressing the loss, and not meant to downplay or diss all of the hard work that FIBArk does to put on a great event. Because if I really wanted it to stay up there I would have continued to be on the FIBArk board and worked hard, year round (like Phil and other organizers), to make it happen. And, in the end, I still support the awesomen'ness that FIBArk brings to the Ark valley as a whole!
