Well we did it again

Letter to The Editor
Well we did it again - for the 11th time the Great Beaver Boat Races provided a splashing good time on the Rainy River on Sunday, July 20th. This zero budget event happens with the help of a whole bunch of volunteers including Telford Advent, Bob McGreevy, Jerry Jolicoeur, Minnesota DNR-Tom Heinrich, Gordon Prost, and Archie Wiersema. The supplies are donated by Ken 'Scrounger' Trenchard; Lowes Lumber-thanks for the tape; Norampac for the cardboard; Fort Frances General Supply for the trophies.
Thanks to all the spectators for turning out and cheering
And a particular thank you to the participants- some who have been in every event from the start - for turning out and enthusiastically providing us with such grand entertainment.
Isn't the Rainy River grand! See you again next year we hope
