Thursday Evening Bridal Veil Eddy Hop Contest Extraordignar...

Post by johnnie a. on Wed 18 May 2011, 1:32 pm

Thursday evening meet at takeout at 5:56:13. The person whom catches the most eddys from the old tram remains until the eddy rock on river left below the crux will receive dinner at Mama Chus after our run.

since you only have half a paddle, each of your eddys would count double. so, you'd get 3 chile rellenos...

Haha- seriously, boater cross eddy contest would be awesome! Imagine 5 or 6 people trying to cram into one little eddy, over, and over again, LOL!
I wish I could make, but long drive from Ogden and all.

The key to this is when you are crammed into the tiny eddy you open the drain plugs or loosen the skirts of your fellow comrads!
I may be able to join the melee. If anyone from the origional new zion (SLC), wants to car pool to lessen the petrol pain, give me a call, 801six80two656

my favorite things about the extraordignar...

tristin showing up

coach newton and his meat arsehole's presence

mike gadd's glasses

daniel hand paddling the river @ 1100cfs

mike gadd winning the downriver race by a hair over fat newty

all the smiles and laughter

good mexican food with close friends and family

when i asked randy nate how many eddys he caught, he replied, "sorry, i wasn't counting eddys. i was counting good surfs and the few remaining minutes i had before i needed to be home."

i'm still preplexed as to why team jackson didn't show up to this event...

whirled peas!!!

I'll be at BV to boat with a gimp and a getto SUPer. Safety is going to be key, there is alot of watery goodness.

One of my favorite runs to hand paddle. Plus that river has one of my all time favorite eddies on any river I have been on. A beautiful water smear, with a two foot drop into a nice eddy. I may be a whitewater snob, but that is a fun run.

I wont feel good unless we check all safety guidelines prior to launch. Believe it or not Compton was in a kayak yesterday, and so was crystal. Fun times to be had today!
