Slalom Demo, Puntledge Festival 08

On June 1st, Andrew Mylly, president of CKBC whitewater, organized a six gate slalom demo on the Tuslom river. This was done at the same time as the Puntledge River Festival. With almost thirty people participating in OC1 & 2's, C1m & w's and K1w & m's it was a great way to check out this demanding sport.
Thanks to Andrew for organizing this demonstration and leaving the gates on the Island so we can hold more of these events here.
