      That’s Ray McLain (R.I.P.) of Wisconsin in the stern.  It appears he and his partner are 50-ing the gate, and I’m pretty sure Ray would like this picture to be gone.  Ray was a good guy, very competitive, and a mentor to me and a lot of other folks.  I paddled with him in the 80’s and the only time I ever saw him swim was with me in a C-2.  It’s one of my proudest paddling moments!  Thanks for posting this.

      Hi Mike, I thought that was Ray, I didn’t know he had passed. I don’t recognize the bow paddler. The dam has really took a beating.

      Pete Shaw suggested that the bow paddler might be Ray’s OC-2Mixed partner, who was Barb Oakley in 1986 (when the slide was dated).  The 1986 results showed they finished first in OC-2Mixed.

      Greg Brown thought the paddler in the yellow Dancer might be Dave Buhs.  We think Stan Stoy is in the background by the dam, in the gold helmet.
