Dear Wildwater Racers and Friends:

This issue contains links to articles with late-breaking news about the US Open (March 25/26) and Wildwater Team Trials (April 1/2).

There also are 2 articles about the Proposed USACK Wildwater Budget for 2006. This budget calls for our best athlete funding in a decade. While it is our goal to fully fund the travel expenses for all athletes who qualify for the team, this can only be accomplished through additional sponsorship. For those folks that will not be able to race for the USA, anything that you can do to help fund our athlete sponsor ship will deeply be appreciated.

We also have the results of the Little Falls Wildwater Club’s pre-Team Trials warm-up race held last weekend.

Finally, the ICF Wildwater Committee has been updating their web site frequently with news about the World Championships and World Cup Races that will be held this summer. The latest information on their web site includes news about a Development Program at the Worlds, World Cups 1 and 2 (Mezzana), a collection of videos showing the course of the Wildwater Championships at Karlovy Vary, and much more. The last article includes a link to the ICF Wildwater Committee's web site.

All of this, and more is available in this E-Zine and on

Happy reading, training and paddling......
