We did it thanks to the efforts put forward by everyone involved we were able to hold the festival another year. We had a great water level and quite a few folks came to show their support it was really cool to have some of the events on Friday evening so some of the hard working Raft guides could have a chance at showing off their skills, it was too bad that the main organizer for the R2 event decided to skip town and go to the Tom Petty concert. I promise we will try to do better next year, After the Ferry Madness event and some surfing at Rodeo Hole we regrouped at CrossFitcashmere for some Amazing Barbeque chicken everyone was amazed that a  skinny white chick from the northwest could cook such amazing chicken on the bone.

After eating we got to watch the premiere for the movie River ward presented by First descents what an amazing movie please go to www.FIRSTdescents.org and figure out a way to show your support special Thanks to Chris Otha for is involvement with such a wonderful organization.

Saturday was an amazing sunny day and everyone totally enjoyed being out on the water and participate in the various events

congrats to Kelly Gillepsie 1st in the rodeo Jenny Colella 1st rodeo and everyone who participated in the down river race, By the time we got to the park at 5:30 everyone was totally sun fried. We held the awards ceremony at the park and gave away a ton of stuff big thanks to all the sponsors for the stuff.

I want to add a special thanks to Andrew and Jeffrey for participating in all the events way go guy’s.
