The pool toy mass start was my favorite event.
I thoroughly enjoy this event every year, and know that the companies and sponsors who put this on invest resources each time into making it happen. Even with low water I felt it was worth the trip to not only have a good time, but to support the groups who support us.

We were happy to see that a lot of other people brought a community mentality, and big numbers of people showed up for big fun. As a bonus it turned out that even though the gauge read lower, it was all snowmelt this year so we even had a touch more water this year than last in the race section.

All in all, a great party in the woods with some boating thrown in. Personally I got in double digit Sunset laps, 6 race stretch laps (4 hardshell, 1 IK and 1 tube), 3 Final Five laps, and a raft run down to the regular take out.
