What: 2nd Annual Nordheimer Race 2008: Cal-Salmon River, Northern California

When: May 2-4th, 2008. The actual race will be on Saturday, May 3rd. Start time: TBD

Cost: This race is entirely free to participants. Camping is paid for by the organizer as well as the cost of beer and event organization.

Summary: Every May, paddlers converge on the Cal-Salmon to paddle one of the most beautiful rivers in the country. Last year, a kayak / raft / anything that floats race took place on the Nordheimer section of the Cal-Salmon. We had a great turnout with over 10 rafts racing and a handful of kayakers. This year we are expecting even greater numbers as the word about this race has been spreading for the last year. Expected attendance is 100-150+ people.

Fundraiser: This is where I need your help.
On November 9th 2007, Sean Langevin,23, a longtime friend of several paddlers, was ambushed and killed near the eastern border of Afghanistan with his Army Unit. One of 9 killed in that attack, Sean left behind a wife, Jessica, who is expecting their 1st daughter in March of 2008. The hope is that we will be able to solicit enough donations to be able to make a sizeable contribution to Sean’s unborn daughter’s Trust Fund established with Wells Fargo. Raffle tickets will be available throughout the weekend for $1 a piece. 100% of the proceeds will be deposited into the memorial fund. Donations of any size will be greatly appreciated.
