Thanks to everyone who made our
Source to Sound 2016 a success!

Our event leaders, organizers and primary implementers, did an amazing job of leading our adventure as were our lead paddlers -- our own Dennis Regan and Joe Ruggiero and David Sinish and Schuy Thomson -- despite beaver dams, cold weather, low flows, rain, flu and pneumonia, they paddled fearlessly on with humor, great strength, and unlimited patience with all the paddlers who joined along the way.
