They were even taking pictures last weekend at Zoom.
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
I love seeing the rookies train this time of year... I rowed Browns last May and saw probably 4 training boats pinned at ~300 cfs at various spots in the canyon... Passed one of them in Widowmaker all pinned to hell near the end and shouted a friendly "YER DOIN' IT WRONG!!!!" as we glided by.
Looks like this year they'll have a bit more water.
I think the commercials are waiting for you CuBuffskier to officially christen the season.
All joking aside, if there's ANY water in the Ark and someone wants to pay to go down it, then there's a commercial trip that day. Probably an early Sunday will be a safe bet for very little traffic especially if you don't hit the common put-in windows.
