Shiawassee River Paddle Event 2008

With dark clouds and rain in the late morning along with wind gusts topping out at 27 mph at 2:00 pm & a high temperature of only 55 degrees approximately 50 brave souls still showed up to paddle the Shiawassee River on May 18th, 2008.

Many many thanks to all the volunteers who braved the weather to put on this event hosted by HeadWatersTrails Inc. in Holly. Oakland County Sheriff Marine Patrol even stopped by with their boat to take a look around and assist local Police with traffic.

Heavners Canoe Rental once again made canoes available to all people that wanted to paddle and provided a much needed shuttle. .
West Marine donated the use of a very large inflateable race buoy.
REI had granted funds to build a bridge linking the 2 sections of WaterWorks together.
To all the other sponsors I may have missed…a sincere Thank You !
