Mullberry EXTREME slalom races

yours truly rounding the turn at gate number 1

Okay, so now that I have you attention, the races are on a class II course that isn't that extreme. However, the races are a lot of fun and are a great way to kick off spring here in Alabama.

Hanging out with Bama Boys Charlie Simmons and the infamous T-Bone Pickens

This was the 29th annual Mullberry River Slalom race in a 3 part event known as the Alabama Cup. It's a really chill grass roots event friendly to all levels of kayakers. Thanks to Luke Scott and Zach Nicolas for putting it on this year. We had an excellent race coarse that kept things interesting and challenging, a downriver race, and the first ever King of the Hole Comp; a free for all style freestyle contest where anything goes to stay in the hole with 1o other people trying to knock each other out.

The only results that I can recall off the top of my head are:

championship class
1st place-Luke Scott
2nd place-Zach Nicolas
3rd place-yours truly, Charlie Mix

Down River
1st-Luke Scott
2nd-Jordan Sherman

And just like at all kayaking contests, there were hot girlfriends and hippies running amuck

Until next time,
