2011 Upper Wind Fest Race Results


Thanks again to Next Adventure for supplying the BBQ and 1st place prizes for all racing divisions. Appreciation also goes out to Sierra Nevada for supplying the libations and Keen and Immersion Research for the additional prizes and schwag. Thanks also to Bullet for demoing and letting us use a couple extra boats for the weekend.

Oregon Rafting Team would like to thank all those who were in attendance, whether competing, running safety, or simply spectating. You all are what makes these events fun to put on and organize.

  1. We watched this event and had a great time. We are going to try it in our Saturn boat when we come back next time around. Wish us luck.

  2. The field seems pretty competitive, based on the results. It's good to see these guys compete with each other, outwitting and outplaying each other. Their competitive spirit keeps them going.
