I hear that there's a waiting list for who gets to ride in the canoe with Yellowdogs Shocked Or was it that people are drawing straws to see who has to? Confused


Oh no, what do the masses know? Surprised


I don't know about the masses, but the elite few know that the BigChiefS4 canoe knows how to stay dry! Very Happy

Like last year, we have possible donations compliments of the MNGCA and Dakota County Parks. I am also now in possession of two sparkling new unactivated trackable geocoins to be raffled off as door prizes.

Totally bummed that I'll have to wait until next year to join the fun. Mad After 5 surgeries and an infection I still won't be walking unassisted for a couple more weeks and won't be done with infusion tx until the 23rd. I thought this was my year to join the fun.

This would have been a great year to go - Mini is looking for a third to paddle his boat!

AccuWeather's new extended forecast is predicting perfect weather, 80 and sunny, for event day. But since it's still 10 days away I won't hold my breath.

Not to jinx anything, but I am part of the Yellowdogs canoe party & I have never swamped - have done many river trips including running rapids. Can't wait!

A close call or two, but we arrived at the event totally dry!

Thank you both for the wonderful event. I can only imagine how much goes into the details of planning something like this. The canoeing was wonderful, the caching was fun, and the food and friends were fabulous. I could have done without the bats. My most sincere thank you to whomever was able to grab that first one in his/her hat and send it on it's way outside. That was impressive! And also to who was able to shoo the second out the front door. I wonder how many more were roosting under the seats. I look forward to next year - minus the bats!
