Mr. Compassionate, there's a handful of us that don't have a river rolls/combat rolls yet either. This is a first time on this run for at least 3 of us. There's a group of experienced paddlers that have run this stretch before that is comming along as well. So, I think you'll be well taken care of if you join us. I've been nursing an elbow and shoulder injury since Sunday, so, I might not paddle. I'll definately be there regardless, but I'll decide if I'm goin to paddle based off of how I feel in the morning. If I don't paddle, I'll help with the shuttle.
The only real main hazard that I have heard of is the frigidly cold water if you swim.
Maybe opdeuce can give us a more heads up on the hazards.??
