Thanks RP (Mark?), my pleasure.
For feedback, I think it would be cool to go back to having the race on Saturday, and the party Saturday night. This means everyone gets to hang out for the party and paddle together on Sunday.
This is whacked, but years ago I entered the Topo Malafosse race in the french alps, at the time still a small class V steep creek event. Not sure if they still do this or not. Anyways, to this day I think this is one of the best race formats I've seen. One of the things that stood out was registration for the race. Race registration happened the evening before the race, and required some heavy drinking and dancing in order to qualify to enter the race. This seemed totally appropriate for a core, low-key, grassroots race. Everyone raced the same boats (Topolino). And the winners won their weight in Pate. Good times
