B'ham excitement

Reivers Dustin

There's a great S.R. event coming up, mixed in with a couple of goofy things.  The Bellingham Traverse is today.  I've never done it, but hey outdoor play is all good.   

Another oddball is the Paddle for Food.  It's in Lake Padden with all proceeds to the Bellingham Food Bank.  All human powered boats welcome.  The format is relay teams made up of most likely mix of fast boats with slower.  Teams are made up after everyone registers.  The course is tight so rowing is disadvantaged.  When Peter pulled this idea together not much was expected from it.  However, the event has become 'a thing'.  Maybe because it's short, mixed teams and quite informal.  

The race has accommodated true beginners since Padden is pretty small and protected.  


Here's Peter's heads up:
