MIDBRF is scaled down this year...lots of local teams not coming from 22Dragons and H20. However, they should still get close to 100 teams (still plenty from out of town), which might actually be a blessing in disguise. With fewer teams they might actually run things more efficiently.

It`s not the competitive event it once was, but it`s still a good time for community teams and out of town teams who want to party.

the only way to save midbrf:

-more organization!
-toronto teams to show up! (slipstream, ocean 1, warriors, CSDC and also the community teams!)
-DCH + MAD + phillys

Really bad this year. Even H20 and 22D joint force to make Montreal Challenge. (Hopefully not take away MIDBRF) I like midbrf. they just have bad organizer and they just had one bad year of the 16 times.

Should hire back Sunny.

Montreal Mix will take 500m. DCH might takes the 200m.

There are alot of decent teams too.

Participated last year in this regatta. Myself and the rest of the team swore never to comeback to this regatta. It was a disaster. When I talk to other Toronto team captains and paddlers I tell them to stay away from this one.

If they hire GWN to run this regatta, I would reconsider coming back.

Any specific reasons...? Rather than just stating your opinion, it's a lot more useful to other teams if you give supporting arguments.

MIDBRF is definitely not the most organized bunch. Could take some notes from GWN, Ottawa, or even lively dragon regattas.

No. I believe 22D runs a festival better than Ottawa or GWN. Let Montrealers handle it.

5:52, what do you mean? They're computer crashed and lost the data?

Seems obvious to me the Matts and H2O are conspiring to sabatoge the festival for financial gain. Not saying there's anything wrong with that. Business is business. But it is plain to see.

MIDBRF kind of deserve it for hiring Jimmy with no experience.

Montreal Mix Will not be participating this year due to most of its girls still being in Hong Kong.

Verdun Express or DCH will take the crown this year in the mixed.

The festival, with all its issues, will survive.

The first schedule is out. Man only 60ish teams


It sounds like all H20 teams boycotted the event. (about 30~ teams) .. and then a few elite team arent there cause they are still at HK or vacation.

Wow there really is no competition at all this year. Why did the H2O teams boycott the event?

Montreal has been an absolute disaster for years, and the last 2 years especially since sunny has left.

The problems at last year's event were worse than ever. Most Friday races were cancelled, race program atrocious, etc..

Nearly all 22dragons teams except a handful stopped going years ago, and H20 had had enough. Oddly, the race is popular among out of town teams, but the locals hate it.

People have been trying to help them for years, but they've managed to ignore and refuse all advice. So long as the board get their photo op with the mayor they are happy.

I'm sad to see the event falling apart, but it's been a long time coming.

I wonder if Montreal and New York notice their similarities?
