at Big Shoals this Saturday. Will be camping out there Friday/Saturday nights. Look for us sitting in chairs watching racers going thru Big Shoals on Saturday. Wave or say "Hi Kayak_Ken" as you go by.

Sounds like you saw a little carnage. Out of those that tried it only one that I know of made it without damage. We portaged. Sure was a nice day.
Did you do the marathon or.....|

I took the year off but my wife and son did the marathon. She was in a pink QCC and he was in a beige QCC. I was perfect weather and water. Fun weekend.
Here are a couple of pictures & movies|

I'm the bowman in that Dagger that ran the shoals. Thanks for posting pics but for some reason I cannot connect to that link. I will try to copy and paste again. Anyway we had a lot of fun and look forward to next year. See you on the river!
Ken, why not you in the Voyager?|

Couldn't use the Voyageur because I took a buddy who was not a paddler but wanted to go camping. He had a good time and wants to go again. I have to admit I got a quilty pleasure using that square stern canoe with a Honda 2.3 4 stroke motor on it, especially going upstream with a fully loaded canoe after the race. Next time we will motor upstream and float/paddle back to the put in/take out.
