2004 Widwater Team Trials DVD Available Update

by John Pinyerd
USA Canoe/Kayak
Wildwater Committee Chair

May 10, 2004 -- Atlanta, GA

As many of you noticed, Bruce Conover (of CNN fame) filmed our team trials on the Top Gauley. Bruce is doing what he can to support our sport and has produced/donated a DVD of Wildwater Team Trials through his company "Quicksilver Productions." The DVD contains footage from the competitors meeting and the "Ramp Festival." Wildwater footage captures the long class III rapid above the finish line and includes practice runs and both days of racing.

If you would like a copy, we are asking for you to join Bruce in supporting USA Wildwater. Please send a $20 donation (add $15 for each additional copy) to the USA Wildwater Team:

Chris Hipgrave,Treasurer
P.O.Box 1946
Bryson City, NC 28713

Make CHECKS payable to the NANTAHALA RACING CLUB and earmark them for USA WILDWATER TEAM DONATION. Bruce and/or I will produce the DVDs when the checks are received.

Please also thank Donnie Hudspeth for battling his computer into submission and getting an article on USA Team Trials posted on
