Paddlers party as picture premieres in pub Sunday, April 01, 2007

Dozens of kayakers gather around the big screen at the Horse & Hound pub in Hood River, Ore., to watch the premiere of LVM issue 22.

It was a standing-room-only crowd at the Horse & Hound British Pub Saturday night as nearly 100 kayakers packed themselves into the Hood River taproom to watch the premiere of Lunch Video Magazine's latest release, Issue 22.

There were so many people there, in f
act, that organizers decided to show the movie twice so that those at the back of the room would have a chance to see it.

Among those in attendance were kayaker/videographers Ryan Scott and Nate Herbeck. Paddlers Todd Anderson and Heather Herbeck were also on hand.

The premiere was organized by another local paddler, Stacey Johnson, who learned about LVM in her hometown of Atlanta. "I wanted to give something back to the boating community," she says, "and make it entertaining." She has helped organize similar events in Atlanta.

As well as the feature film, Nate Herbeck's movie "Liquid Insanity" and LVM Issue 20 were shown. Johnson also held a raffle for prizes including various whitewater DVDs, club memberships, and a Watershed dry bag.
