I've not been checking this board enough!

I wish I could go but I am committed to a trip to the sea side that weekend..

I'm in Europe later in the year but will not be with paddlers so will likely have to leave the boats at home.

I want to go, but I need someone from the UK to share the fuel costs with, they're dam expensive these days.

Hi Savagekevin,

There is definitely class II and II-III sections on the Inn. Check out rivermap.ch:

Not a lot yet, counting from this forum:
- NZMatt
- Beereddy (?)
- Kris
- Outrage Dave (?)

But it looks like we will be at least 20 to 25 people. Anyone else? We have to order ingedients for Saturday night cooking...

I haven't checked this forum for a long time (thanks, Angus, for reminding me :wink:), but I will be at the Armada if everything goes as planned.

I'm looking forward to it.

By the way: I will be sticking around the Alps for the week after the Armada (May 21st to 25th), planning to join up with friends at Lofer (Armada location 2010) on May 26th. So if anyone wants to do more paddling (Vorderrhein, which is close to Sur En; Bavarian Alps (Loisach, Ammer...); Austrian Inn - whatever turns up and has enough water...), let me know. We can talk details at Sur En.

I second that - it was again great to meet the old bunch of fellow paddling friends and meet a few new ones, paddle a great, challenging and beautiful river together and celebrate this all every night... see you all again next year, or more likely before that somewhere on a river ;D

Cheers to the wet and open!

I've seen pictures (link to galery in this http://www.wildwasserboard.de/t1706f5-E ... rmada.html topic).

Does anyone - as in previous years - recorded a video?

Booked. I have a year to work out over my technique ;)

PS
I greet all on the occasion of the first post :)

I composed the video the previous years, after gathering the footage from all people.

I wasn't able to come this year (doctor forbid me), so I have no clue this time who has what footage wise.

Next year I'll be back, for the paddling and the video ;-).

Alright, fellow C Boaters,

here's the link to my photo selection of this years Euro Armada in Engadin, Switzerland: https://picasaweb.google.com/1062112050 ... directlink

And there's a little video too, showing five runs at "Up Against the Wall", one of the three major rapids on the Scuol section of the Inn:
https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/K ... directlink

I'm not that much of a videographer...

Have fun, paddle safe, CU next year the latest.
