Thanks to many who made the Gore race happen

Lisa, Alicia, Helen, Joanne and the Timberline staff. Doug and all the safety paddlers. BLM and Parks people. And of course all the paddlers. Although I could not race this year it was my favorite Gore Fest yet. It was back to its roots. Nicely done. And congrats to Charlie Mac for his win. It was cool to see him blaze the fastest line and then roll down the upper c in a ducky with his family the same afternoon.

As Hobie said, thank you Lisa and everyone organizing the race for all the effort. It was an awesome race complimented by ideal weather & water conditions. Thanks to Hobie for timing as well. I look forward to seeing the results, as I rolled down pumphouse after the race also.

Thanks so much to all the volunteers.

Even more thanks for Tom getting destroyed and swimming on a "class IV" rapid.

Big thanks to all of the above. A couple years ago the race was in shambles and last weekend was a great time.
