New River Alliance Event, Disappointed
I'm in Chapel Hill NC for the summer. The new river festival was this weekend in Fayetteville WV which fas a five hour drive for me. I had signed up and paid for a clinic through the event website, I thought was a good way to run water I was not familiar with. After driving there I found out and talking to several staff who did not have any clue about the event I was told it was cancelled. As I tried to get my money back I was told that this event was not part of The New River Festival and it was not their problem and to stop harassing the staff. Finally after showing them the receipt finally got my money back but got the comment "well it is hard to tell who is at fault". No Apology. I have never been treated so poorly and was really insulted. I do not recommend attending this event.
On the bright side I got to paddle classic West Virginia water. Interestedly enough I paddled with a fellow Coloradoan among others.
