Here's my round of applause to the MCSA and all the individuals who made this event happen; The paddlers, photographers, spectators, contestants, the search and rescue team, etc. Imagine the hours of work that went into this event (and the stress)!
Well done! I'm looking forward to the next one.

Agreed. While I am bleak about how things turned out it looked to be a good day if it hadn't been rudely interrupted by the rain.
Any competition takes heaps of organising. I know that Neil was back and forth to Wilgepoort to test out lines and set everything up. Outdoor comps are always at the risk to the elements which adds an extra level of stress to the organisers. (There are only so many sacrifices you can make to the weather gods :wink: )
Thanks to the okes that rowed us across the river in the pouring rain.

Well done to Neil and Andrew! Was great fun. Wilgepoort is a very special place and the MCSA has been climbing there for 50 years. Now that the MCSA owns the property it is great to see it being used as access was very tricky in the past.

There is a nice article here: http://www.adventurelife.co.za/our-adve ... ersolocomp
