Boise 2nd Hometown Throwdown

16 May 2008 One Comment

Boise’s 2nd Hometown Throwdown was again greeted by fantastic weather and plenty of water. Temps hit 82 by showtime and life was good. The river was sitting at 7440cfs and this presented a little problem with the entry into the third (and at this level, bottom) wave-hole that required a very determined approach and entry into the feature. At the end of 2 rounds everyone was pretty well thrashed and we moved to the down-river portion which everyone seems to really enjoy and this was highlighted by Tyler Allyn’s entry move from a bow-stall to a front loop as he made the first drop – very impressive!

The entourage of kids that just returned from Reno where here. Eight juniors provided great entertainment and lots of energy. Scores were bunched closer together this event as these guys just keep getting more aggressive.

Both Men’s divisions were great fun to watch. Everything from beautiful spins to Loops and Helix.

Post event highlights included watching 8-year-old Hayden Voorhees nailing very solid rolls in the main current of the Gutter, but this was rivaled by Mike McLeods feats of cooking burgers and dogs on the grill with a plastic fork! (The man is quick!)

After burgers one of the kids broke out a football and we all played catch until dark. All-in-all a great way to spend an evening!

As usual, hordes of parents were up for volunteer positions and Mark Cecchini and Michael Leeds were invaluable as judges. Marks experience with running the Maryland Chute Out is a definite asset for our events; he is kind of like taking an oozy to a knife fight… Scott Morell again served as time keeper, Tim Reuser as scribe. My fantastic wife, Bonnie, handled the paperwork. Big thanks – these events wouldn’t happen with out them!
