OK this is it for Gold dumps. Thanks to everyone who submitted and the showdown begins tomorrow!
So I couldn’t let this contest end with out sending some pics in from the great mank state of Colorado. First up is extreme tuber Rolf Kelly on the black canyon’s waterfall before the fun mile long portage. Next up is sensei Stafford showing all of us how to style cool world on the classic colorado wilderness run, the big south. The 3rd pic is another shot of Rolf Kelly on the best boof on the front range on upper south boulder creek. The last pic is of the huckin duckie Joe keck huckin his meat off of escalante falls on escalante creek, some good early season mud runoff.
Black Gold, Canyon Gold that is.
Boof da Mank in a kayak or tube.
Huck the golden duck.
Yes, its true, attached to this email is a golden stroke so mighty it could only be performed with one hand. I found myself on Sect.IV safety boating for the Georgia State University outdoor program, Touch The Earth, on Friday. In true scumbag form I was in all borrowed gear; from boat to rope. When we arrived to Seven Foot Falls, a beam of light mellifluously fell down from the heavens and struck me. All I could do was grab the rail of my boat and hold on. Also, we spotted a young nubile maiden, in the form of a river siren at Bull Sluice. We managed to snap a quick photo only as evidence that you can gaze your eyes upon a nymph without falling into their mythological booby trap.

OK that is it for Golden Stroke Submissions. Actually Kirk Eddleman sent in about a terabyte of goldies but he won the Werner contest last year and we had to disqualify him for the glutinous submission. Thanks to everyone for the images and video and we will start the showdown Wednesday Morning. Good luck everyone!
