Looks like washing Tom's Tahoe worked! I think we'll have awesome water for the Instructor Candidate's Exam this weekend on the Cossatot. Yehaw!

What a blast doing this course. if your ever interested in taking any kind of ACA Instructor Candidate Workshop or exam. I highly recommend Tom Burroughs to be the guy you take it from. He's really good at this stuff. He'll also teach you a thing or two.

The two weekends in a row at the Cossatot was also great!
