Gore Race is the final "real" kayaking that I get in the season. It is a weekend packed with excitement, where people come from all over to celebrate a great love for the sport of kayaking. When I was told that the Gore Race was cancelled this year due to high water I was devastated. But I decided to go to Gore anyway and it was really fun. We met lots of other people who had come to run the river, which was at a sweet level, even though the race wasn't on. I ran (or tried to run) the left-left line on Gore rapid for the first time and wound up face surfing in ginger (much my happiness it was not a very long surf and I didn't have to swim). Anyone who is in CO next August and wants to run an awesome river and meet some psyched boaters should check it out.

If you answered yes to either of these things, hopefully this blog can help avoid some of those awkward conversations!
