Anyone run Dowd Chute yet this season?

Just wondering if anyone has jumped into Dowd yet and if it's runable.

Ran it today with nroberts. Level doesn't read on the guage but it's runnable and a good time to boot! The put in is rough going to start but gets deeper as you get into the chute. All the features of the chute are the same just mini and class III. Tyson runs left and is a cake walk with nothing notable above it. Toads is an obstical course but still fun. Watch for the magnetic bridge! Potential for boat abuse is high but if you choose your lines wisely you can make it through without getting stuck. . . . perminantly. All in all dowd is fun for the preseason especially since the snow sucks! Happy paddling.
