Preview Race Image Compilation CD-ROM

We intend to make a CD-ROM with higher-resolution scans of the many photos (easily 100+) taken by the race organizers, to be available at the modest price of mailing and media for anyone who would like to have the photos. Photos of the racers on the river, brave souls taking the "beaver dam challenge", and shots of smiling faces at the end of the race will all be on the CD. Unfortunately, these images cannot all be posted on the website -- we simply don't have sufficient disk space, so we hope that this will be the next best option for everyone who participated.

Scanning the many photos and moving them to disks will take our volunteers time to finish. Details will follow as soon as they are available. Keep checking the site!
