Over the last three days, a very small group of people, have built a very large course with, turns, a log, barriers, long power stretches, and gravel, all set on an island in the Holston river in the shadow of Bays Mountian. Sunny and 41 on Saturday, partly cloudy and 54 on Sunday. We have built it, we hope you will come.
