We raised $439 during the auction!
We had 30 Canoe's/Kayak's on the River for the Race.

I received a note saying the website is reporting the Rendezvous/Race is the May 24/25.
It is this Weekend, May 2nd and 3rd.
I was unaware of this (My end shows correct dates) and will work quickly to fix this problem.
If you do see these dates, please email me what browser you use, so I can diagnose what is causing this horrible mistake.
Again, I appologise for this bad mixup.
