The 2008 Collegiate National Whitewater Championships would have been the third year running for this great event. Regrettably CSTV (College Sports Television) had to pull the plug just recently. While the whitewater portion was one of the highest rating television segments of the entire show CSTV had to prioritize new sports in new markets to continue to grow the event. They have given me assurances that they will be back and strong next year. Reno has proven to be a great host city and if it isnít back there in 2009 it might be in another spot.
I know that it was a very difficult decision for the folks at CSTV to postpone this event for one year. In speaking with them they wanted me to express their appreciation to all of the great athletes that have competed that last two years. I also want to thank all of the athletes that make this event so great and fun to produce. You guys make my job a lot easier.
I will keep you posted as to when and where the 2009 edition will be scheduled.
If you have any questions or comments donít hesitate to drop me a line.
