09/24 - The Great Pachaug Canoe and Kayak Race

The Great Pachaug Canoe and Kayak Race took place on Saturday, September 24, 2011. There was not a great turnout; however, there was some great racing. Although we expected terrible rain, other than some drizzle during registration, the day turned out to be quite nice and the sun even peeked out towards the end. We had some tasty snacks after the race - cupcakes, courtesy of Vicki Cummings (Thank you!), and cake, cookies and bananas, courtesy of The Big Y. Thanks also to Paula and Ray Thiel, who were at the race with us from set-up to take-down. Paula was a great help with registration and timing and Ray helped with buoys and loading up the cars after the race. They both helped to keep an eye on Theo, who seemed to be entertaining everyone.

Thanks to those of you that made the trip - we hope that you enjoyed the race. Thanks also for your generosity in buying tickets for the 50/50 raffle, this raised $100 for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Thanks especially to the generosity of the winner who donated his money back to the L&L Society! Unfortunately, there was no profit from the race this year to send The L&L Society so we are grateful for everyone's contributions.
