Bellingham Paddle Grand Prix Points Series Race #1

The first Tuesday night points race of the "Pre-Grand Prix" series had a great turn-out last Tuesday night (July 27th). We had 17 racers competing for free-entry fee into the September 5th race and other shwag like Mount Baker lift tickets.

Event organizers like myself & Brandon & Heather Nelson are not eligible for prizes, so I chose to stay on-shift and start the race with a blast from Engine 3's siren.

A great grass-roots crew, proud to be a part of it....

Next series race is August 10th.
