Originally, the Boulder Bend Bash was intended to be a team time trial event. However, the day the race took place there were one thousand other things going on between The Leavenworth Film Festival and the rafting companies being slammed. So we mixed things up a little bit.

Andy cannot wait to fill out this waiver.

Our core group of racers slowly trickled into the take out at the Happy Wave Beach Club where Osprey Rafting was kind enough to let us set up shop. With all of the river guide kayakers tied up in their entertainment duties, we had a relatively small turn out. Nonetheless, it was the most diverse turn out of paddlers any Leavenworth World Kayak event had ever seen.

Hailing from Colorado, we had Andy Zeiger representing the squirt boater scene with team Shark Attack. From Ellensburg, Washington, Eric Wintard was bringing it tough with the inflatable kayak. Holding it down for the modern creek boat class was Kyle Scott, and last but lot least, Darren and Cody Albright had their game faces on as they prepared to assault the race in the Dynamic Duo. I would also like to give a big shout out to Tegan Owens from British Columbia for helping out with the race and gracing us with her presence.
