Please unstick the older sticky posts

With maximum respect to Derk, his family and friends,

Please unstick the Posts related to Derk's accident and memorial. I wouldnt mind seeing them bumped back up when people have new things to share, but clearly everyone on this board has read them already, probably numerous times.

Even though there are a lot of good memories and positves shared, Should the first thing that a new visitor (newby Kayaker) to the forum sees be a testament to the worst possible tragedy that can happen?

Carry on

Thanks for bringing this up. I don't think Derk would want newbie boaters logging on and seeing the thread of his death and memorial as their first impression of the lifestyle or the 'Buzz.

The threads are no longer stickied. If anyone has anything to add, or would like to revisit our response to his passing, you can find Derk's thread here:

We lost a good kid today

Rest in Peace, Derk. Thanks for what you shared with us all.
