The Sawbill crew held its second annual dragon

8/3/08 – The Sawbill crew held its second annual dragon boat race (actually canoes) to coincide with the Fisherman’s Picnic dragon boat races held in Grand Marais every year. Four 4-person teams started at the Forest Service dock half a mile from the Sawbill Landing and raced back to the landing. The winning team, in four minutes flat, was Three Babes and A Boy, consisting of Cindy, Tess, Jessa and me. Aside from swift paddling by the three gals and precision steering by me, our win is largely credited to the fact that all the other teams ran into each other when they rounded the point near the Forest Service dock. – Lee
