Jud Kaiser Paddling on Brennan's Wave with Kellogg Kids in background

Today we did the Preliminary Rounds for all Classes in the Montana Whitewater Championships.   The broader scope of this event is that it is the Grande Finale of the USFKA Point Series.     Water levels are dropping at Brennan’s Wave on the Clark Fork in Missoula and it is down to about 6,000 CFS.  After competing in events that were between 240 and 350 cfs in Colorado, this 6,000 cfs water is very welcome and totally different.

 

I didn’t get photos today, but hope we can get some photos and hopefully some video tomorrow.  I was either Announcing or competing today, making it hard to do much more.

 

Here are the finalists for tomorrow (Semi-finalists for the Men’s Pro Class)
