April 20, 2004 ~ a message from John Pinyerd, USA Canoe Kayak Wildwater Committee Chairman


Donnie Hudspeth and his team put on a terrific race venue this past weekend. With organized team events

(like dinner at the Ramp Festival) and a awards banquet/luncheon, it reminded me of the hospitality we

received in Kernville last year. Look for additional results and articles over the next few days at

www.gauleyrace.com and on www.usawildwater.com
