This past Saturday, at the Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) in western North Carolina, these international honorees or their representatives joined together for a day of festivities. From a raft trip with 2005 IWHoF Honoree Payson Kennedy to presentations by 2008 IWHoF Honoree Eric Jackson and Olympian Wayne Dickert, it was a day filled with celebrating the signifcant accomplishments of the above Honorees.
The ACA would like to commend NOC team member Matt Urdan for organizing this memorable event.
