Hobie, the last two years the freestyle event has been held on Saturday. Green River kind of dropped the ball this year since they waited until last week to send out the flyers.
Alex, the cash purse is divided out. Yet, first place was $600 in pro men, and $300 for second if I remember correctly. It's been a fun rivalry between the front range and Jackson boys the last two years, plus the SLC paddlers, but Cory's gone.
Awesome night paddling complete with bonfires last year...and the organizers set it up! We tend to get treated like celebrities when we go. They release for the event, and set up concrete blocks with a back hoe to channelize the water. We've been able to loop and hit all of the basic hole moves in the past. Judging has been volunteered by the competitors. It's small and fun...
