It was as if the creativity erupted like a volcano, except in a much more gentle way. It would be hard to pinpoint the best ever Raft-O-Rama, but it were possible, this one would be a strong contender. In all there were 27 rafts entered. Right on schedule, they assembled at the head-of-the-lake and started their journey around the shoreline.
Judging this event must be very difficult. But someone has to do it, and the results are in from the awards ceremony held at 4 pm at Eagle Point.
