We lost a good friend yesterday, and a huge supporter of the paddling community. He will be sorely missed. In addition to being a great guy to have on the river, John gave huge amounts of his time to help us to make Platte-a-Palooza a success. He was acting treasurer on the board, and worked tirelessly to ensure it's success. Here's hoping you find better water my friend.
