The group put on at the Flanagan Dam on the Pound River, then connected up with the Russell Fork running the upper class II-III section. Some of the highlights of the run are 20 Stiches and Bartlick Bridge.

The group put on the river at 12:30pm, the run took about 3 ½ hours. The group headed for home after the run and did not stay for the Sunday release.
