Two organizations finalized an agreement to partner on an effort to regain the Guinness Book of World Records for the “Largest raft of canoes and kayaks”. The date for this event will be September 13th 2014. Both groups are excited to be working together on what we hope to be a record setting community event.
Not only are we participating, we will are part of their special recognition for groups. We will also be setting up as vendors displaying our group's interests in health, safety, clean waterways (Riverkeeper).
We realize that not everyone will be arriving at the same time, but I do strongly suggest (but not necessary) that you be at the main event site by 8 or 9am if you have to still sign in.
Some of us will be camping at Eighth Lake Campground.
If you have not registered yet, you need to do that asap to ensure that you are put in our launch group.
Go to the following link to register:
Waiver Form at the following link.
After registering, make sure you contact the GROUP organizer to tell them that you are with us and want to launch with us.
The following is a link to the schedule of activities, on and off the water. Although the actual rafting/launching of boats is not until 11am, you cannot officially be part of that unless you have registered, signed in and received your launch assignment and participant number. The best idea is to arrive the day before to assure that that is all done but it not necessary...I can check you in if you get me your signed waiver form.
We will have a table/tent setup in the event area.... a good place to meet other members of our group or leave messages for others. Most of us are planning on grabbing a sub after the event and meeting near our tent.
There will also be a buffet lunch put on by the organizers after the main event with a suggested donation of $8. I am thinking there will be a contingency of us camping the night before and maybe that night as well.
Look for this on the back of my boat
