The second Reno hometown throwdown went off without bad
weather Wednesday showing itself.

We had a great crew at the Whitewater Park throwing down
some great cartwheels, cleans, loops, and felixes.  With all the great prizes everyone went home
with some great swag, the Ninkasi towel was first off the rack, followed close
by the IR thick-skin and Mountain Khakis, DVDs from Rapid Transit, Helmet from
Shred Ready, shirts from Kokatat and Chaco, and tons of paddle wax from Stony

With lots of new boaters in town this year the Ninkasi
Brewery fueled after throwdown hanging out.
It takes time to break into new crews in new areas but the throwdowns
provide a great networking tool for kayakers in new towns.  Can’t wait till the next one as there should
be a little more water in the Truckee.
