Man, wish I could be there racing on the poudre at low water. Natalie and I are stuck up here on the Slave river, just 92,000 cfs, no creekboating in sight, just nice waves and big rapids. Wish I could be bashing rocks and watching Natalie boof anyone who looks at her sideways. Instead I have to go throw some airblunts, or run the edge or something. In fact, today is paddlefest here, so we'll be competing too.

Good times. Now since I go but don't race, I really shouldn't talk smack, but that is not going to stop me.

Lots of good boaters out there yesterday. Unfortunately the cup has gone east. First went to a guy named Curtis from TN, I believe, with second going to Jim Janney (TJ@ CU's brother). It was pleasure boating with you both.

Evan managed a close third, beating out our previous champ, cutch in the last semi final when he flipped and gave away a commanding lead on the very last drop of lower.

White line seems much easier, at least at present flows, with most variables of the route going successfully.

Not that great a turn out. Lots of missing locals, some with really lame excuses, like shopping for new vacation outfits!

Great to see P the K's outfit as usual. I'm sure we'll see pic's before too long. Next time pick one you can boat in.

Nice not to have to look at Kevin's A$$.

Great to see someone I won't mention swim for the second year in a row. We had at least one other swim. That last drop seems to get tired boaters napping.

Leif that's great and all but the race is something that involves community and well that better than the slave at 100k so go continue to run escalante at 50 cfs and leave the fun to us! For real nobody cares

Ran 2 upper narrows 3middle laps 10 lower laps on poudre 1 community day takin 2 gore newbie 1 6am lap no scout no portage at gore race morniing 2 laps on bridges at poudre and black rock this morn. Headed for some bluegrass a we speak all in 4 days big deal. Still/made/the race won losers from 5 and a pin had best time ever and used everything I had and swam after crossing finish line big deal. Having blast cause I'm still boating and hitting fremont to btw wwhich is basically the shit.

Thanks for another great race fort guys everybody did well no losers except kevin for changing time and not showing lame

Twas a great race. As always, I heard a lot of "this is the funnest race out there." Especially from the Tennessee boys who kicked our collective asses. Ouch. It hurts. I'm kinda disappointed I got third, ya, cause I wanted to win, but more cause there are some talented and pretty fast, and YOUNG paddlers who didn't show who prolly woulda had a better chance of holdin of the easterners and keepin the belt at least in the state.

But ya, I beat Cutch, and Casper swam givin it all he had, the losers bracket ruled, especially when Juni swam too and shit, we really did just have a good group come together and race down one of the best backyard runs around.

Thanks to everybody who showed up makin it a great race, Christian for bringing the belt back even tho he wasn't racin, and to realdad, it's gonna be hard livin down the shit you pulled - changing the time of the race and then not showing! WTF! Keep in mind you are not allowed to talk shit next year which may be next to impossible for you, and is therefore a very fitting punishment.

Cheers to the Gnarrows!

"Went" to bluegrass being the operative word, Nathan.

Ha. When you put it like that Dave it does sound pretty lame..not to mention ghey. What can I a week from now ill be big balling across the Mediterranean in posh locales such as France, Italy Barcelona,Corsica, Monaco and some think they'll allow me in the Monte Carlo casino to rub elbows with famous celebs the likes of Simon Lebron while wearing immersion research? Besides..I've sorta checked out for the season. And with my only real loser-heat competition- realdad gone I figured I'd let casper have the limelight. He seems to be having the most fun and plus he drove all that way. Those looked some big heats too. Nice job Evan gettin on the podium. Lets see p the K's outfit, unless its a cod piece. See you at gore beeches.

Great day everyone! Lots of low water carnage!! SlowJ sorry you couldnt make it, I saw your ass on the side of the road by the tall stack of rubbers, I couldnt stop, had to get to the race! Took the stops out though and brought fur, glad no one had any paint. I let everyone else win bwt, just wanted to keep my talents a secret until the timing is right for me to have the buckle, and this year it just didnt feel right, kinda like the last 5 years actually.... But really great race everyone, next year it would be nice to see some more faces. Lots of missing players, especially from the fort, weak showing FTCrew... Anywho, lets get a winch this winter and tip the whiteline rock back up, blackline doesnt do it for me... Thanks to Dave as well, always great to see you out there, and know that there is a little bit of safety somewhere, even though its hard to pick which swimmer or boat to save when 7 people are bashing around in lowers! Swimmarmike, nice try, next year just bring a tube and floaties. Good luck enforcing the no shit talking rule on youcantevenshowup, I'm more likely to get married and have kids... Tina, props to winning the fem division! Cutch, nice piton on the last lap! And to everyone else, good luck in the off season, training for next year starts now! Lastly, Tenn boys, good luck, be kind to that buckle, and bring her back nice and shiny for me in a year!
