    Smile Little Su Float Classic August 16,2008

    This year's race is a little longer, maybe 4 miles total. Easy water, great time!
    The race ends at Miller's ice cream store on the Parks Highway, just in time for
    the parade that kicks off Houston Founder's Day celebration. Come for the canoe
    race and stay for the BBQ and fireworks!

    Talking Great Race Day

    Well, we had maybe six canoes, one kayak, and maybe eight rafts this year. The overall winner was in a canoe... ME (and my partner Greg from Fairbanks.) We won a certificate, $100 cash, $25 gas card, and some other loot. The run was maybe 4 miles, and it took us 38 minutes. The kayak was uncontested for his first place money, but the rafts were hotly contested. There was a VW dune buggy body on a styrofoam raft that was dead last, but picked up points for style. Lots of salmon in the water, and a pleasant day.
    Parade was OK, and long line for the free BBQ picnic, but the 50th anniversary FIREWORKS were amazing. Thanks to Gorilla Fireworks!
    Hope to see many more out next year.

    Thumbs up sounds fun

    I wish we could get away from our campground and rental business in the summer to be apart of some of the fun stuff going on around this big ol state. Maybe next year.
