Two Great River Events in One!
This was the 4th Annual Race to the Dome, followed by a great music and biking combination: the Mo River Rendezvous.
We had 123 boats and 167 paddlers competing in 22 divisions this year. Paddlers could choose between a 15.8 or 26.6 mile race course, starting in either Providence or Hartsburg. It was a perfect day on the river. A little blustery but beautiful.
The main sponsor of the event was Missouri American Water, and all proceeds benefit Missouri River Relief. The event is organized by Missouri River Relief volunteer board member Patrick Lynn.

For the second year in a row, St. James Winery is showing their support for Missouri River Relief by donating $1 per case of wine sold to cleaning up the Missouri River!
Throughout August and September, any St. James wine you purchase in a Missouri store will count toward this generous donation. Even cooler... St. James wine is now river friendly! In addition to the traditional glass bottle, St. James is now serving their concoctions in river-friendly non-breakable bags.
