I always found the mr340 to be about people and the resource.  Dave Marner had posted some pics earlier from the 1st safety meeting but couldn't find that thread so apologies for starting a new one. Here's some photos of people who were involved in the inuagural 340, Aug 2-6, 2006. They include:  Dawn  Stewart, Chapel Hill, NC; Christina Glauner, Lawrence, KS; Mariak Uliaz,
Fort Collins, CO; yours truly, brwa 175+Trex the Rare West Tibetan Mountain Dog, KCMO,  Travis Worley and
Karin Thomas, Olathe, KS; and West Hansen, Austin, Tx. Couple of the pics were taken in 2007 (Christina & Karin) but they were involved from the start of this race. In 2006 Christina was part of a women's tandem with Edie Jackson.  You can see that even at the beginning people were coming from all across the USA to participate. Note: all of the women who started the first mr340 finished.
 

However, truth is a reasonable substitute.

What it would be without pics of your guides? Russ Payzant who always leads the boats downstream.  Russ is still piloting that beautifully restored cruiser. This photo is from 2007 at the L&C boathouse.

And one of Scott in his original aluminum canoe, 25 horse, safety boat. Like most repeat participants, Scott's now upgraded to more suitable craft for getting down river and keeping the whole shenanigans on track and on time. This photo was also taken in 2007 at the St. Charles landing. Now that I think of it, the one of Russ was taken at the start of the race at Kaw Point.

That will not qualify for the aluminum division due of course to standing. One must be seated for that unofficial division.

Plus there's the whole motor thing. We're still not allowed to have motors, right?
