Laurie Hamilton has run the race before.”The route we were gonna take was blocked off so we had to take another edge near a rock wall but we just managed to avoid it.””So you did that little spot of river right right before the portage takeout and that’s a tricky little spot? So what was in the way so you couldn’t come down the center channel?””I think it was blocked off with a bunch of boats in there there will a lot of trees in there and everyone was just getting stuck.”
