Every year Videograss has a signature session at High Cascade. It’s fun and a bunch of the VG dudes get together. Here are some photos from the session and the premiere.
On arrival day Joe Sexton had a handstand contest with the campers.

I made a bet with Riley Erickson that he couldn’t throw an arrow through a cup about 30 yards away and he did. So I had to buy him candy every day for the rest of the trip.
