Paddle Fest was awsome Thanks!!

:P Just want to give a big thanks to everyone at Paddle Fest. It was an incredible experience for us. Great job by CKS & RMOC, we were able to paddle and get taught by the worlds best kayakers. My kids were instructed by Nikki and Tanya (sorry don't know the spelling of their last names) but they were great kayakers and very patienent with us, and my kids improved so much. I was also instructed by Shane Benidict of Liquid Logic of the finer points of playboating and a new world record, 4 second bow stall (my own world record). What other sport in the world do you have such access to the athletes as we do in kayaking. All the reps where really nice, my kids all want new Jackson Kayaks what a great company. I only wish I had the money to buy all new kayaks for the whole family. If I did I would certainly buy them from CKS. Thanks Again!!

Yea, the paddlefest was a blast. Fun time on the river and in the evenings.

The evening show was nice. The tribute to Daniel DeLavergne was touching. It was neat hearing some people talk about him. I'm impressed how paddling brings people together.

Paddlefest was great. Thanks earl, chad and the gang at CKS for all the fun.

The river levels were great and the events were fun. BV is a great location for an event like this. Can't wait to come back next year.

And special thanks to Jackson for letting most of our Club demo your boats on Sunday. We are now looking to get 3 more of your boats for our club. And thanks to Clay Wright for helping us out in the Salida hole, we all improved tons.
