Rock in River Festival rock-skipping championships draw top talent

The wind died down for Craig Goodelle, 39. Finally.
 
The Erie native stood on the calm shores of French Creek with a flat, iPhone-sized rock in his hand.
 
Now came the time for a big toss.
 
With the cadence of a pitcher, he sent the rock hydroplaning across the water.
 
“Go! Go! Go!” he yelled.
 
The rock resembled a tiny Jet Ski for a few seconds, skipping the water 14 times until it vanished into the shallow stream...
"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus
