Dear Wildwater Racers and Friends:

The Team Trials are now complete and the athletes for the 2007 Junior and Senior Wildwater Teams have been decided. You can ready about the results of the Western Junior Team Trials and see who is on the Junior and Senior teams in the first three articles in this issue of the USAWildwater E-zine.

Now that we have named the members of both teams, we need everyone's help to financially support these fine athletes and the USA Wildwater program. See the "USA Wildwater needs your help" article to learn how you can help!! Then read about how Michael Beavers stepped up to the plate by donating his gear to USA Wildwater. The gear is being "sold" to raise money for USA Wildwater. We will miss Michael and his work with our organization.

The last article in this E-zine is a report on an "inmformal" training camp that was help on the North Branch of the Potomac River. I copied the text of the article from a post on the wildwater Yahoo Group (with permission from Chris Norbury). I found this interesting because it discusses comparisons of times from this race and the race held last October at the same venue. Another event will be held there this coming weekend.

Congratulations to the athletes who were named to the Junior and Senior teams and a BIG THANKS TO ALL who competed in the 2007 Team Trials.

Please keep sending me new articles!!
