2010 Race Results
This years Rain Gods gave us less than complimentary river levels but that didn't stop competitive boaters from all around the northwest from showing up and stomping some of the areas best whitewater. Thanks to all participants who showed up and showed their loyalty to the regional boating community and a special big up to Next Adventure for their continued generous support of BBQ and t-shirts at this years event. Thanks also to Zach Collier and NWRC for helping out with evening festivities.
