Thunder Over Thurmond Week Update

The kayaking olympics and moonlight paddle on the Little River Blueway
scheduled this evening (Tuesday, July 3) was canceled due to weather. We will use the rain date, which is Friday, July 6 at 7pm at Baker Creek State Park. Participants should RSVP to Gloria Bramble at by Thursday, July 5 at noon. Spectators are welcome, and should gather at the Baker Creek Pavilion.

On tap for tomorrow, July 4th is the first annual boat parade.  The word through the Blueway is that some of the decorations are going to be very creative.  Boats launch from the Dorn Sport Fishing Center at 10:30 a.m. and plan to arrive at the Savannah Lakes Marina Beach around noon.  Free hot dogs will also be provided by the Lake Thurmond US Sail and Power Squadron at the beach.  Spectators are welcome and encouraged.
