In our opinion: Cheers

(Continued)

A wonderful example of this expansion was the use of the Pepacton Reservoir as the first leg in The United States Adventure Racing Association Championship. The 30-hour, 100-mile event began Oct. 12 with a 12-mile paddle. The race included 165 competitors from around the nation who paddled, biked, ran trails and raced through an orienteering course in Delaware, Sullivan and Ulster counties.

Allowing more uses of the reservoirs can be a boon to the local economy. The limits on the reservoirs give boaters who want to enjoy the water without worry about the wake of motorized boats a place to go.

We hope to see more races like that come to our local reservoirs in the future.
