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.
