Want 2 free tickets for wet west?

We need a T Shirt design for this years T Shirt. You could see your design worn by literally hundreds of kayakers. None of them actually buy t shirts so it's essential that we arrange clothing for them on an annual basis.

What we are looking for...
As it's the 10th anniversary of wet west (or the Andy Jackson weekend) we would love to have an old school themed design, preferably incorporating the iconic Eskimo Topo. It would also be good if it said wet west paddlefest 2014 somewhere.
This years t shirt will be purple. All the coolest old school kit was purple, right? Also, we've done black, white, blue, red, green. The committee decided pink and yellow wouldn't go so well with our eyes.

Email your entries/questions to mulrainm@gmail.com

Deadline for entries - 15/08/14

Went along with the camera for both days this year, and now have a vast number of photos to edit over the next week (...at least). Will give links to them when they're eventually uploaded. A couple for now:

Into the abyss (Upper Moriston - top drop)

Advanced apologies for all the stuff missed - there's always going to be something happening as soon as you turn your back (Lower Moriston - "Head Banger")

Mark,

Are you and the SCA team doing feedback again this year as I have one or two observations about this years WWPF?

Apologies for the delay - life an all that...

Vast quantity of photos for the Moriston uploaded, a shorter sample slide-show, or album.

The full lot (if you want to loose over half an hour of your life....) slideshow, or album.

Alternatively, some below:

Upper Moriston - top drop

Downstream

Playboating is decidedly NOT recommended here...

Lower Moriston:

Have omitted the swimming and misfortunes that befell some, though not from the large album. Hope all that were unfortunate enough to receive injuries this year, and I know there were a few, have all recovered, and are well.

If you want the large sized versions of yourselves in action, please do just ask (no commercial use permitted though).

DaveSt,

As ever, some smashing shots of all the girls and boys having fun on the Moriston.

I have to say fella's, there is an awful lot of 'air bracing' going on in those photo's of us all running the 'Head Banger' drop on the Lower Moriston don't you think...
