All paddlers will be receiving a meal at Henderson's Bank. The river isn't as bad as it was last year so we can expect a faster race.  First canoes are expected to arrive a little bit after 2hrs!

There will be cash prize and medals for 1st and 2nd place teams in each category, 3rd place team finishers will received a medal only.

There is also a station prize for this race. The prize is dinner for the paddlers of the 1st team to pass at Manatee Lookout, we should have a buoy to mark the location.
