TTAS- #2 amended
I can't figure out how to make the email from bonkhardracing readable and I can't find it on their site. What I was saying is how ridiculous I find it that people actually lost their canoes during this race. People who won even donated their winnings back to help pay for the canoes. I wouldn't have. Getting some money back in the form of prize money is the only way these races are worth doing. I understand the logistics and equipment needed to execute a race, but the cost is just way too high for me to be able to enjoy it and crap like that is just going to make entry fees higher. The jerks with no canoe skills should pay for the canoes they lost. It shouldn't be up to other people to cover their asses. When Kyle and I did Berryman a couple years ago ( we got 2nd) we practiced canoe entry and rescue techniques and practiced paddling together. Pretty dumb to go into something like that without any idea of what you're doing. I lost a good friend to a canoe accident a few years ago, so it strikes a sour note with me.
