We want to take a breath and first off thank the local community for helping out with today's river fest in so many ways, and without whom we could not have held the event. Thanks to all that attended, and helped with events/clinics during the day, rescue, sponsors, exhibitors, etc. Finally thanks to our club members for putting in a big effort across the board. 👍👍 ...
