The comp is being held in the lower hole right off the square in South Main. Very cool feature and beautiful venue. Rained during the second half of the prelims. Finals at 6:00 Saturday. Its been a really entertaining comp with 2, of 2, very high scoring rides required to advance. Both Freestyle World Champs are here, EJ and RG, and advanced and I believe every other boater in the finals has stood on the podium at a Worlds and or/a World Cup. Very high level of boating.

Paddle Fest is poised and ready. Lets hope for the sun this weekend. The new Eddyline Brew Pub on the South Main Square was open for its first night of biz and the place was packed. The owner is a boater, a good guy and has made a strong contribution to the BV community. The food, friends and beer were all top notch. I recommend the South Main Stout and the Pine Creek Porter.

Its a good time to be in the Ark. valley.

Dustin was just nasty yesterday. I know he is married with a kid and a job...but in my estimation doing all of that when you are 24 or whatever does not have quite the same draining effect on the skill set. Impressive.

Water level was down a few hundred cfs making the hole less retentive. The Troutmans stepped it up and Nick beat father in law EJ to set up a good family dynamic. :) Definitely a fun event. After the men's event the guys spent a good amount of time entertaining the crowd with paddleless rides. The rain held off until after the comp but drove everyone off the square and into the Brew Pub later. The awards were followed by an LVM vid and the new "Demshitz" video. Lots of food, friends and beer again. Paddle Fest continues today.
