CYC Distance Race to KenLake - June 6th and 7th

Our Kenlake race/cruise is this weekend. Saturday at 10:00. Check in on the water. Start line will be our normal start line. Finish line will be your mast under the Egner's Ferry Bridge. After the race we will raft up in the bay outside of the marina. Bring things to grill...kayaks or dinghys to play in, whatever suits you. Sunday everyone is on their own to cruise back as they see fit, or there can be an impromptu grudge match race back if two or more racers are interested. I will have everyone's start times figured by Friday evening. For everyone's information, there are kid crew members confirmed. Adjust your expectations accordingly! Who's in?

I have been carried to the South Pole, the North Pole and on every space mission.  I was planted in permanent flying position by astronauts on the Moon.

I have seen many of the men of our nation fall and lie still in death.  I have kept my vigil over graves, amid the crosses, row on row, and around the world.  The Purity of our veterans is remembered in my White Stripes; Their Blood has given me stripes of Red. Their Souls are cradled in my Stars and their Courage Embedded in my Blue.

I am many things to many people. I am an inseparable link in the chain that binds men to God and Country.  I am the "Red, White and Blue", "The Star-Spangled Banner", "The Stars and Stripes", But I am most commonly Known by a nickname "OLD…
