    That's all good, but I do it because I love the Comal. With the severe drought we're experiencing down here, the lakes are low and they're not doing the water releases out of Canyon Lake for the Guadalupe River tubers like they usually do. The tubers have moved over part and parcel to the Comal so it's getting hit hard. It's going to take a dedicated effort on our part to keep the river free of trash, especially through the summer months.

    Okay, off the soap box...for now.

    How are the teams structured? I am out of Dallas/Ft. Worth could I just sign up with an existing team or would I need to form my own if I did this?

    You can either form a team with friends, join an existing one, or just show up and you will be assigned to a team. There will be a spot for you if you want to join in.

    I have done this event the past 2 years. It's a great time and a great event! Roger and crew do a great job getting everything ready. As long as everything goes my way, I'll be doing it again his year.
