Canoe Race $100 prize! August 18th
Yep, it's official. There are cash prizes to the first 3 places for canoe, raft and kayak. Looks like the race has been cut back a little to just under 2 miles. Registration opens at noon at the Houston Chamber of Commerce, which is located in the log cabin in front of the fire station at mile 57.4 Parks. Takeout/ Finish line is at Millers boat landing, behind the icecream shop. Thanks to Choice Mortgage for the cash prizes, and all participants get a T-shirt.
Stick around for the parade, picnic, and BBQ after the race. At 11:00pm Gorilla Fireworks is going to light up the sky with a memorial to Jerry of Jerry's Fireworks.
