    Totally confused! It says meet at the rowing center on Fri. 5:00 P.M. but the OTHER says meet at Abels at 6:00 PM, which one is right?

      Hey Neil! The pre race party / packet pick up TONIGHT is at Abel's on the lake. The race TOMORROW is at Texas Rowing Center. Sorry for the confusion. Check the PFH website for more details

    I'll make it for the social paddle and pre-race party Friday evening, but will be out of town for the race this year. Is there going to be a SUP clinic Friday night, too (like last year)? This is such a great event, and so much fun! Good luck to all racing this year:-)

      I'm not sure about a SUP clinic prior, but I'll update the page as I get more details. I will have to miss the Friday the 13th festivities - I'll be at my nieces wedding! But I'll be there for the race on Saturday! :0)
