Fort Wayne Race June 19, 2021

Fort Wayne La Classique June 19, 2021 By Steven Horney Race day was looking questionable as we prepared Saturday morning.  Storms had run through the area, and some were wondering if the races might be cancelled.  Silly paddlers; they should know by now that we might cancel a race for a tornado, but rarely for anything less. … Continue reading Fort Wayne Race June 19, 2021
