Canoe race postponed

June 26, 2008

The canoe race from Eudora to De Soto scheduled for Saturday has been postponed because of safety concerns associated with the high river level on the Kaw.

Race organizer Darrel Zimmeran has rescheduled the race for Saturday, July 5, pending lower river levels

Pre-race registration will be at 9 a.m. at the city of Eudora boat ramp on the Wakarusa River. The race will start at that point at 10 a.m. and travel 12 miles downstream to the De Soto boat ramp on the Kaw north of 79th Street.

The entry fee for a two-person team is $20, of which $2 will be donated to Friends of the Kaw.

The winning team will receive the registration fees and a traveling trophy.

For more information, call Darrel Zimmerman at (913) 209-4446.
