The event is set for Sunday, March 31, 2013. News from Eric Chance on Boatertalk:
I thought since Mike Patterson is so slow, I would make up an event that he could win. New for this year we will be having a Watauga Triple Crown Downriver/Freestyle Competition on the Sunday, March 31, 2013 following the race. The judging will be completely subjective, so this is the kind of freestyle event you could win in an RPM. Here are the stages:
1. Hydro Rodeo- downriver freestyle through hydro
2. Heavy Water Boater X- Head to head race through heavy water, longer boats will start farther back (judging for this wonât be subjective).
3. Freestyle off Stateline- extra points for beat downs.
Stay tuned for more details as event time gets closer.
