Add another $50 to the first descents donations. I found a guys paddle on Bailey this weekend and got it back to him. He generously wanted to reward me. Feeling that river karma was a good enough reward for me, we decided to cut the check to first descents.
Top notch job to the eddyflower crew for putting on the vertical challenge. The prizes were huge, and I can only imagine the amount of work they put into this to organize it and get sponsors to donate. The competition was fun and the party at the end was a great finale. With class III, IV, weekend warrior, and open divisions there was something for everyone.
Strategizing with our crew on how to get the most vertical and the most fun out of limited time was great fun. Walking away with a new drytop put a big smile on my face too! Knowing that we as a community helped some young adults have a great time makes it all the more worthwhile.
Can't wait for next year.
