Good luck, sounds like a fun event in support of a great cause.

I'm a little puzzled by the date of the event, but hey, what do I know? I'm too old for that cold-weather stuff and, besides, I own a canoe, not a kayak.

Thanks for the catch - I must have been thinking about deer hunting when I typed this up - yes, it is on September 25th. Thanks!

Also, Canoes are a legal boat for the tournament.
