Update 2021-04-25: BIG Little River Paddle Race is cancelled due to weather.
Postponed due to weather to 2PM, Sunday, April 25, 2021: BIG Little River Paddle Race.
Wes James asked some questions I hadn’t thought of about the BIG Little River Paddle Race last night on WAAC 92.9 FM radio, about boat size, for example.
Remember to get your tickets, and if you want to you can rent a boat,
both online in advance:
We are watching the weather, as discussed in the first video. While today the prediction is for thunderstorms Saturday, it’s also for those not starting until afternoon, when everybody will be off the river anyway, in which case no problem. Also, we’ve frequently seen such predictions move a day or so later, so we shall see. So far, so good.
