2011 Community Paddle Results
We held the Potomac Whitewater Festival two weeks earlier this year to get better water, and it paid off in a big way! The river was a perfect 3.7 feet and we were blessed with sunny, 85 degree weather for the Community Paddle.
Nobody wore a costume this year, which meant more prizes for on-water events such as a 10-kayak boom run, a stand-up-and-balance-in-your-boat-for-20-seconds contest, and a sunken boat race through Maryland Chute. Here are the winners:
- Kayak boom run: Noah Beakes
- Balance contest: Jason and Noah Beakes, Patricia Jenson, Will (?)
- Sunken boat race: Fern Abrams (1st) and Kevin Rogers (2nd)
- Tandem canoe and only canine competitor: Mr, Mrs, and Rocky Lutter
Thanks to all the participants for making it a wonderful afternoon. I hope to see everyone again next year, when we will add a Nerf football game and even the odds for playboats in the sunken boat race by requiring people to drain their kayaks at the finish line!
Special thanks to Tom Verratti for donating six Noze Bling to give as prizes.
