I hope everyone has had a great summer and is looking forward to the fall. In the last several years, we have lost the tradition of having a fall meeting due to the fact that it was connected to the Tireless James, which was frequently canceled due to rain. Many have expressed a desire to get back to a regular fall meeting, which has typically been more social.
With that in mind, I hope you all can make it to Howardsville on October 20. My hope is that folks will float that day, we will have a brief meeting at 6:30 and for those who desire, camp out in the evening. Several folks have stepped up in the last few months to say they would like to take on a more significant role in the festival, and I plan use this time to talk about how things might be structured going forward. Roger Nelson will be grilling hot dogs.
So in brief:
–Fall meeting/ float 10/20
-Float from Wingina to Howardsville
-Meeting at 6:30
-Roger grilling hot dogs
-Camp out if desired
Please let me know if you plan to attend so we can make sure to get enough food!
Thanks, and I look forward to seeing many of you in October!
