It's all happening

Participants line up on the Pine River in Sumner Township Saturday morning for the start of the Verlon Kruger Memorial Bushwhacker Challenge, which included three separate races - a 10-mile sprint, 40-mile cruise and 150-mile challenge.

The Bushwhacker Challenge, a 150 mile expedition canoe race is in full swing. A gruelling event has taken it's toll on almost half the competitors. You can see more on the event and fundraising efforts at the new Kruger Memorial Website

The girls (Boo and Emi) and I made it down to Paddlefest at Lackee and Joys on Saturday. Lots of people being introduced to paddling. We got there around 11:00am, and I say there were a 60 or so people on the water. A dip of the paddle to all the safety kayakers and volunteers that made this a safe and enjoyable experience.

Boo's piece on bringing breast cancer awareness through her participation in the Everglades Challenge has made the "Best of CNN Headline News" on their website.
