    Default Raft Race $100 first 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.

    Default Rules for race August 18th Houston Founders Day

    Put in is at public park off Robin Hood, off King Arthur.
    I don't believe there's a limit to the number of folks in a boat, but you'll have to split winnings. Register at the Houston Chamber of Commerce on Saturday the 18th, starting at noon. Race start is a short drive, and finish line is at Miller's Ice Cream stand (there's a boat launch out back.) Entry fee includes T-shirt.
