Wow - so many to thank

Originally uploaded by Iron Bieso
The first-ever South Dakota Kayak Challenge ended with the last of the nearly 90 racers finishing early Sunday afternoon in Sioux City.

The South Dakota Canoe & Kayak Association really kicked ass, so many members volunteered, raced, or just contributed a bit of themselves in order for this race to be a success.

We have certainly helped to put South Dakota paddling on the map with the race!

Our concerns and plans turn local now as we get ready for Saturday's Paddling Fair. It's 1-4 p.m. at Family Lake and if you have any questions, write to any board member or call Jarett at 605-941-4940.

We are indeed planning a 2011 South Dakota Kayak Challenge, and we sure hope we can get more paddlers on the water for this super event, and more volunteers to help them enjoy this majestic waterway.

Again, huge thank yous to all the volunteers who made our checkpoints and organization work so well. YOU ROCK!
