2016 HTTD #2

Well throwdown number two was super fun for kayakers and spectators alike.
Everyone improved over the first throwdown and we saw some big tricks.
It was great to see some new and old faces at the Reno park as we enjoy the river after several dismal years of flows.
Everyone staid for several hours discussing boating plans for the year and enjoying Ninkasi Beer.
The prizes awesome as usual and everyone got to pick something based on their name being drawn from the hat.

Thanks to World Kayaks Sponsors:

Bad weather Wednesdays returned this week for the HTTD#3 held on the Floriston rapids.  We had 16 racers this time who navigated a fun course with one major move around a large midstream boulder requiring a full 360 degree path with several attainments.  As always the race was followed by Ninkasi brews in the parking lot where racers were part of a raffle for great prizes from our sponsors including: Jackson Kayak, IR, GoPro, Chaco, Rapid Transit, Kokatat, Astral, Ninkasi, Shred Ready, Stonyboater, Smith, and Mountain Khakis.
