First of all, I'm not involved in any way with the event. I work on the Wenatchee River for a raft company. This board has both Kayakers AND Rafters. These are NOT competing events- different demographics. Just thought I'd HELP your event by letting peeps know that there are additional things to do that weekend if they weren't kayakers so that they still might be interested in making the trip out to the Wenatchee that weekend.
