Bailey fest 2012!!!!

Great weekend! Big thanks Ian, American Whitewater, Oscar Blues, Confluence kayaks, the land owner that let us all camp in his field and the many other sponsors that helped make this event possible. Time to start the count down for the fourth annual Bailey fest! Remember none of this is possible without all the sponsors. If you won a prize of some sort you should thank the manufacturer for supporting Bailey fest! A Email or phone call thanking them for supporting events such as Bailey fest will help keep this event going. Thanks again Ian for making it happen.

Ian Rocks!!!
I/we would love an update... how many in attendance? (It seemed like a lot more people camping this year)
Also if any body has updates on those injured, it would be great to know that they are doing well ( as well as can be at least).

If I was the landowner, Id be bothered about the vehicle traffic in muddy areas of the camping meadow.

Some of the damage could be reduced if there was a designated launch site at the camp. The ford at the upper end of the meadow is ideal for a put-in.

The landowner was around while some of us were helping to clean up the party. I heard he was pretty psyched about the event so I wouldn't worry about it.

It was great to see so many familiar faces and people having a good time. I'll never forget peeling into the eddy above Supermax on Saturday, looking over my shoulder and seeing the banks just blanketed with people and a guy walking across the slackline over the middle of the rapid!

Big thanks to Ian and all the sponsors and volunteers that helped out.

Now if someone would just find my lost black Shred Ready helmet...
