Report from the "First Pumpkin Race and Costume Boater Competition", October 31, 1999

On a cool but sunny Halloween afternoon Mari and Horst floated from Island Park to Beltline Bridge. images/mari_horst_pumpkin1.jpg

The Willamette River was quite a bit higher than what we were accustomed to during the summer, presenting the major rapids fast but washed out. This was a wonderful opportunity to check out all the other drops that are usually un-runnable at low water. Very interesting!

But most importantly, we were dressed appropriately for the day: Mari decorated with a rainbow wig and Horst under a witch's hat.

Great fun !    --    Let's make it an annual event !
