This was quite the happy weekend. First and foremost, congratulations to Dennis for getting engaged! I never thought I'd see the day, but I couldn't be happier for him. Here's wishing him and his soon-to-be family the very best.

On a less momentous, but still very happy note, Dennis and I met a whole bunch of new Canoe U grads down at the Verm on Sunday. The river was at a good level for beginning paddlers (~120 cfs) and the newbies really ripped it up! I was completely impressed by both their skill level and enthusiasm. It's really great to see. We were also joined by Eric (a solid paddler who's a transplant from Wausau), Paul B, and Barney and his wife. It was a great group and a really fun day. Congrats to the new paddlers on their first Verm descent!

Unfortunately, I was too busy paddling and chatting to get the camera out, so there's no pics. Next time...

Hi Bryan,

I wished I could have been there!

Sara looked so good on the Verm yesterday I bet she got a really good boost on Sunday!

Bryan looked very good too!

I guess I will see some of the others on Friday by moon light :-)

I'm still in shock, Dennis is engaged! Congratulations, Karla & I wish you & Lisa all the best. If only I could have been in two places at the same time, I would have liked to have been on the Verm & the Kettle on Sunday. It’s good to know that we have a new group of paddlers getting into the greatest outdoor sport known to man. The Kettle was at a sweet level last weekend. Most of the best features were in, the water was warm, and fun was had by all. The next trip for me is the Salmon Rive in Idaho, July 11 - 18, 95 river miles with several class III/IV rapids.

See ya on the water.
