The second annual Smith Mountain Lake Dragon Boat Race and Festival to benefit the Presbyterian Community Center was held at Parkway Marina on September 14. The day was beautiful and the competition was fierce among 17 teams, raising funds for our programs for needy families and children.
The BAC Paddlers claimed first place with the fastest time of the day. Unreliable Boating Skills came in second and Covenant Crewsers took third place.
Susan Arthur of Cool Running was the top individual fundraiser and top fundraising team was Covenant Crewsers. Best dressed team was Second Wind. Best dressed drummer and best tent awards went to Lords & Ladies of the Underground.
We are very grateful to Carilion Clinic and Velocity Care and all sponsors and participants of this fun event. Our 2014 race will take place on October 4. Mark your calendars now!
