Is this a swim?

Does pinning on a log and having to pull your skirt to exit the river count as a swim? Do I owe a booty beer for that? My thought are it wasn't that bad of a pin and I could have hung out there till the log washed downstream but to expedite the trip I pulled out and walked to shore. Any thoughts?

Not in my book. I'd call it an escape. And bootie beers are for class 3 newbies

If you swam then it counts as a swim, and booty beers are for everyone.

"Walked to shore"? That's called "de-boating". I had one of those this year...

Boof512 is an expert on what classifies as a swim. He should add something to this thread. Hell yes, if you got wet, it is a swim. I wouldn't drink from my booty, I wouldn't expect anyone else to drink from their's.

Aye, there's the rub. Why does the swimmer get the beer. The people who wrangle the swimmers gear should get the beers. Nasty beer is better than no beer at all, so where's the disincentive?

In the ice game it counts. Now if someone else on the river that day trumped you pin, swim, self rescue; say a full on swim, they buy the round of ice cream. IMHO booty beers are the dumbest tradition in any sport i have ever encountered. I dont think anyone should ever have to drink from a booty. So in my opinion, all you may possibly owe is some ice cream (ice cream can be substituted with another tasty food substance as long as the people you are paddling agree to it).

P.S to those who play and created the ice cream game... Thank You... it is a much better system.

booty beers and/or booty shots are a quensisential part of kayaking. I personally think it is one of the best traditions of any sport I have encountered.....The river gods demand their bootet PERIOD! Any swim, pin raft or kayak including falling out of your boat putting in or taking out is a swim.

I once did a booty shot for swimming out of a tube.

Take your bootet like a man. enough said!
