Oakland County has 5 Rivers , ony 1 race canceled

Shiawassee River race had weak attendance - bad press

Perhaps this article jinxed the attendance numbers :

"""Lingering effects of excessive rain have cancelled an annual Oakland County canoe and kayak race. ""
"""Fast and high water in the Clinton River forced the cancellation of the third annual Paddlepalooza,
scheduled for Saturday in Auburn Hills and Rochester Hills. ""

The annual Shiawassee River race on June 5th, Sunday went off without a hitch still drawing
about 75 participants - BUT we had hoped for 200 + paddlers on such a nice day.

Oakland County needs to do a better job promoting the Shiawassee River
