FIBArk Festival recap: Flying Ligers win raft rodeo

A picture named hooliganrace.jpg

From The Mountain Mail (Kevin Hoffman):

A panel of judges chose the best rafts loosely based on spectator reaction and criteria such as biggest flip and most creative pirating attempt. The Ligers were steered by Boulder residents Gary Lacy, Spencer Lacy and Shane Sigle along with Mark Poindexter of Austin, Texas. The crew had several passengers throughout the tournament, but Spencer Lacy won the crowd’s attention with several flips off the raft into the wave…

In second place the Black Sheep, a Raft Masters guide known as B.L., captained his boat solo. Two unidentified men steering a green craft aptly called the Leprechaun took third place in the event.
