And just like that, our amazing 2016 league season comes to a close! There was tough competition between our teams, but in the end, only one could stand out and reign supreme. With that, we say:
Congratulations to the Argyle Otters, our 2016 Interior Alaska Epic: Kayak Ultimate League Champions!
But just because the league playoffs are over doesn't mean that we're done for the year! Remember, next week at regular league time is the closing barbecue for the league, with burgers and hot dogs provided by EKU and the Board Members, plus we'll be handing out the 2016 plaque to the champion team and handing out end-of-season surveys, making it an event not to miss. We also want to encourage anyone to bring potluck style food of their own for the rest of the players, to promote that comradarie and sportsmanship that we built the game on, so think of something tasty to share!
After that, leisure play will continue at Tanana Lakes until the end of August, and at Spades Court until the water is too cold as to be safe and comfortable. More than that, though, we'll also be at the 40th Annual Nenana Wildwater Festival, down at the Nenana River and Otto Lake near Denali Park. We also have lots of stuff in the works for this winter to keep those paddles wet even when the snow is flying, so think twice before tossing your gear in storage. You may want to get in on some of these events we're working on with the rest of the paddling community!
Thanks again to everyone for such an amazing season, and to everyone that helped out all summer long!
