Hello and thanks to you all, having made this wonderful time possible!
I had a lot of fun, learned a lot, met old and new friends, faced some new river challenges, to cut a long story short: I had a great time! It rocked! I've also seen the most spectacular runs in a year, since nothing is as impressive as an open canoe, solo or tandem, jumping and boofing over huge waves or holes.
So I'm sad it's over, but I'm looking forward to the next time, meeting again about the best company you can have on a river!

I'm thankful to you all!

Hey Craig,
I agree with Taniwha! You should come!!! It is a great time, fancy, friendly, nice people to paddle with on beutiful rivers. you can spend your year's holiday here in europe, too. There are a lot of rivers of all levels in the alps, and I'm sure, enough CBoaters for company after the armada, too. Then also enough possibilities when you don't want to paddle.

Hope to C you next year!

(the information on the armada next year will be posted in this forum. but if you want to be on the contact e-mail list for the information distribution, too, just drop me a pm)
