WASYAK google email distribution group for rapidly announcing river plans

Post by Kennybyron on Tue 22 Mar 2011, 1:59 pm

Hello all,

I've put together a google group intended to rapidly identify paddling opportunities in Utah. It is not sponsered by any clubs; nor is intended to compete with any other kayaking forums/websites/etc. My hope is that people will use it to quickly assemble paddling groups when flows are up.

Please let me know if you are interested in placing an email address on the distribution list.

Dude, talk about redundant. Whats wrong with using this website, or is the problem because you didnt create it? There is this site, the clubs site and eddyflower for those two people still using that. Yawn....

Like I said, no competition. Just an fast way to find paddlers when flows are good.

For those of you that are interested you can also set up your email inbox (in most cases, depending on email service) to forward messages from this distribution to your phone. A great way to get people's attention when time is of the essence.

You must be kidding..... this is the website where people get their paddling plans, if not on facebook. Your idea is in direct conflict with this website's initial reason for being alive and you have the nerve to come on here and advertise for your 'idea' while claiming 'no competition'. You're first two posts ever on here are in a feeble attempt to draw people away from here. Think about it.

Friendly waters buddy.
Luckily the web is still a fairly free environment permitting and fostering intellectual and stimulating innovations. I can understand where you are coming from, and possibly even that you feel threatened. Even further I believe I can understand the popular trend for people to publicly denounce others for coming up with novel and interesting ways to leverage the internet. For simple verification browse through just about any web post and count the number of dissenters. Comparing both sides of the intellectual spectrum, my lot is going to be cast with the innovators.
In regards to UTRIVERS.com, I am glad to be a supporter and user, and I plan on continuing that support.

Thank you for your opinion Jeff. It is valid and seems well thought out. I hope you find the rivers a friendly place full of adventure in this season and those to come.

To anyone else that is interested, lets get out and paddle!

Thanks!

Didn't know you were still local Kenny. Hope the best for your group, but Jeff has a pretty valid point. This forum was started because of a closed group. Between this forum, FB posts, and friggin smart phones most of the bases are covered. That being said, give it a whirl and see what happens.

Oughta go throw down a couple beers and blunts when and if you have time. Ogden is going off currently.

Seriously? We're gonna turn this into eddyflower part deuce by going fucking ape shit on anyone who has a different idea? I thought it was a valid idea and in no way did I see it as conflict with this site, Is the goal of this site to make money or something? Is it a fucking popularity contest? Can you not bo0at with people if they didn't hook up with you here or on facebook? I've had times when time whas of the essence and a phone call would have gotten more people on the water. I don't check this site every 5 minutes but I always have my phone with me. How could a phone network of paddlers be a bad thing? I can't come here anymore. I can't handle the animosity and hate that some of you foster, those of you who boat with me know how to reach me, those who don't, happy paddling.

Hey I want in on this-
I hate cold water, and I can't wait till my new toaster-mitts get here. Screw you guys for boating on cold water and liking it. Who do you think you are with your fancy dry-suits and cold water tolerance? I'm gonna start a new club/web-site where people only boat on warm water. UPWWC club, or the Utah Pee-Warm Water Club. Screw you guys, see you on the river.
hehehe...

I only like cold water boating if there is plenty of water to boat on. Other than that I hate it, but do it any way.
