Sunny with a light breeze, not too hot, not too cold, water low and a bit slow, but a fine time was had by all, at the BIG Little River Paddle Race Saturday 16 May 2015 in Reed Bingham State Park. Well, Dwight Griner did clock in slower than the previous two years, but the low water probably caused that, and he still won again.
WWALS thanks Friends of Reed Bingham (FORB), the sponsors, the volunteers who helped, and especially the paddlers. Here we see race organizer Bret Wagenhorst calling out the names of the winners, with Treasurer Gretchen Quarterman handing out the prizes; Ambassador Dave Hetzel also said a few words about WWALS.
