Name: Tom Potter or T-Pot
Where are you from: Leavenworth, WA
Favorite Place to Paddle: The Wenatchee River. From steep class V to endless play boating, it’s got it all!!

Accomplishments: Contributed to the growth of the whitewater kayaking community in Leavenworth, WA by hosting weekly paddling events and assisting newer paddlers get their skills dialed.
Goals: Travel! I want to check off several international paddling destinations in 2017 including Ecuador, Peru, and Mexico.
What I love about kayaking: The places it takes you and the people you’ll meet. Both are extremely intriguing and the only way you’ll ever experience either is by whitewater kayaking.
Crazy thing about myself: I am a 28 year old survivor of Hodgkins Lymphoma. Kayaking was my main vice while going through treatment. #kayakingsaveslives
