Cuts from the '08 Mank Crew
It saddens me to inform the following people that they have been cut from the '08 squad. As we all know by now, the Mank Crew does not give a shit if it's raining, snowing, windy, -8 degrees, my boat broke, my arm is sore, my boy/girlfriend threatened me, the drive is long, or my anatomy has sand in it and aches. Anyway, to the following people, thanks for trying out and we'll see what happens next spring (I'm talking February).
Chris M (the one from CB - not CMo who tore it up),
Marky Mark from Winter Park,
and the entire Poudre Posse (although it was a going away party for my boy lotsa, so maybe a little slack will be cut).
Here's to you core boaters that made an awesome bluebird Gore race even though it did snow on us as we drove over Eisenhower. You don't gotta race or even run it, but you gotta show up when we're going kayakin (even if you had to call in sick). Thanks especially to the safety crew and to Lisa, Tim, and Hobie et al for generating the event for yet another year.
2009 is just around the corner, so I'll see you all up at Gore/Bailey in the coming weeks to get in shape.
P.S. I've had one hellva season with you all - it's been a pleasure. Let's keep it rolling with some fall trips. Chile, Jan 2009 - who's in?
