Hey, if people want to be negative about gore fest, feel free to make an email list, bitch to yourselves and go camping somewhere else that weekend. The race is not the heart and soul of the fest, neither is some band, beer manufactuer or the arrival of pro boaters. Although Joffe and New Belgium rule and I wish they were coming.
Gorefest is the Colorado boating holiday where boaters of all craft come together and celebrate our fantastic summer lifestyle. It's the one weekend where I get to put on a river with my 100 favorite boating partners - then drink a beer with them at the takeout. We get to talk smack and swap stories about the sport that cleanses our souls. I can't wait to see all you freaky people. I'll be there from wednesday thru sunday if anyone else wants to get down - extended style! Also, bring the family and friends - the Upper C and hot springs are just downstream. Bring your stopwatches - we can set up an unofficial team race similar to the Black Rock format. We'll need firewood also, lots, and whiskey, too.
See you at Gorefest, Saturday the 18th and Sunday the 19th.
