I was the Kayaker who got hit in the face. I only have a few things to say to you. First, this event was an accident (and would go as far as saying it was an accident on both our parts but do not want to get into that because it really doesn't matter). In any case, I was slammed in the face by a raft paddle. All you needed to do was say sorry for hitting you in the face with my paddle but next time could you pay more attention to rafts. That's it.

Normally I would've apologized for something accidental like that. All I can think of is that I was so surprised that right after warning your partner that you guys should be careful around me, the very thing I'd gone out of my way to prevent had happened. I didn't realize that you'd been hit in the face and had I known I would've offered help.

I'm sorry I hit you with my oar. Of course it was an accident and I felt badly enough that after getting home I broadcast the warning to the community. Hopefully all of us can have a safer, more enjoyable time on the river.
