at least you learned to roll

Film Archive

Dang, Wish I had seen this before final production of "The Call of the River." Looks like some good footage! I rounded up footage from 50 different sources for our recent production, (including entire collections from Salida, DC, ACA, and others) so perhaps for now I am the de facto keeper of an arc...

Thanks for enthusiasm of the historical documentary film

Hey all thanks for the kind words in advance of seeing the film... One of the coolest parts was seeing the C-boat contribution to the sport through the years.
