    Hello all, I'm very sad to post this, however if there is anyone still interested in a spot (or two actually) for this event, could you get in touch with me please. I caught a bad cold over the weekend and trying to be prudent by staying in and resting . Kayaksing on the river would probably be unwise, despite my wishes. Thank you.
