Is Dig supporting Ironman? Ironman World Championships in Hawaii for 2021 were postponed. St. George was awarded the opportunity to host those athletes on our turf in 2022. Dig crew members have been supporting open water triathlons and other aquatic events in six western states for almost 15 years, having coordinated and contributed thousands of man-hours to benefit these dedicated athletes. We simultaneously help our county Search And Rescue Dive Team raise funds for their equipment and training, as they are typically paid to spearhead the water support effort. Some of our crew will, once again, be at the Ironman...
Dam it. Twice! Between the Parker Dam and Headgate Dam is a calm section of the Colorado River, lined with state parks, campsites, RV resorts, short-term rentals, groomed sand beaches, restaurants, the famed (or infamous) bars of Parker Strip, Bluewater Casino hotel and marina, and the Venice-like canals of the Moovalya Keys. Toward the base of the deepest dam structure in the world - not to be confused with the deepest damned structure in the world - the Parker Dam, is the quiet of River Lodge Resort, where ADR has staged its race start since its inception over ten years...
What a Party! We gathered some of our favorite people and drove south to Parker Dam Arizona near Lake Havasu to participate in "Another Dam Race". It was well worth the drive.

The race began with a polynesian style dedication, haka, song and blessing over the event. After which participants began piling into the river to start the race. Wave after wave of Outrigger canoes started the race off followed by kayakers and...
Once again, we are joining a national event, hosted in over 30 cities and growing every year! Monster & Sea is a benefit watersports brand that contributes to families and individuals in need. Once a year, for 24 hours, we join their cause!We paddle. We raise money for victims of cancer and families struggling with medical bills and care. This year, Team Dig 01 has selected a Utah family that has a son who is battling like a champ to overcome leukemia. We want to respect the family's privacy, but are happy to share details over a phone call or...
Quail Creek State Park. For much of the year, I live (mostly) somewhere betwixt gravel and sand, shore lap and shop, garage and grotto. I wish there actually WAS a grotto on our lake, but I'll settle for cliffs and coves. Between November and February, we don't spend a tremendous amount of time, on a daily basis, at the park; it's cooling in November, with shortening days. In February we find the coldest water temperatures, but extending hours of sunlight, still with little to no park visitation. I typically retreat into my design skillset and work with a variety of...
