Lost paddle in the numbers

Lost paddle below #5 on a swim. closer to # 6 actually. Didnt actually see it resurface, so it may have pinned on some boulders. None of the paddlers i was with saw it,although they looked pretty carefully all the way to miner's. It may pop loose at some point or it may be halfway to the gorge... Le sigh.

Black 191cm werner shogun
With my name,number& email in silver paint pen on it.
One month old. Le double-sigh.

Beverage reward of course.
Case of beer or a bottle of buffalo trace bourbon.

salvage and recovery succesful

Happy ending to the end of my trip, post Arkansas swim team renewal debacle...today after packing up my camp, I went back to the spot, and with great midday sunlight and lovely clear colorado water, was able to spot my paddle wedged halfway in a rockpile, underwater with half the paddle fully out in the current. it was actually feasible to access, so I geared up a bit, swam out and retrieved it easily , and it is no worse for the wear and the overnight in the river. a couple scratches on the shaft from rocks. it wedged good.would have been there til the water dropped or a boat snapped it in half. glad to be able to mitigate a hazard i inadvertently created...
Lucky boy am I.... got to appreciate when the river gives you back what could have been long gone. Respect and condolences to the fallen as well. RIP. Gear is nothing in the big picture.
Cheers again, SYOTR
