    The weather report will be showers on and off tomorrow. The last time I did this kayaking event. We had the same forecast. We got lucky. It did rain north, and south of us. But, we had sun on and off most of the day, with no rain. It turned out to be a perfect day. So, it will be up to you. To see if you want to join us? If the report changes to all rain? I will cancel it by 9 am. tomorrow.
