Final Event Details
Swimmers/Paddlers/Challengers of all stripes, we are looking forward to seeing you this Sunday September 8 for the 2013 Portland Challenge! A few last-minute reminders: If you have a life jacket, please bring it. We will have the usual pile on hand, but we never know how many swimmers are going to show up. The more personal floatation devices we have, the better! Also: there will be a dragon boat race on the Willamette around the same time as our crossing. Both the sponsoring dragon boat organization and the U.S. Coast Guard are aware that there will be multiple events on the Willamette on Sunday and neither we nor they foresee any reason for a conflict. The Portland Challenge loves dragon boats and the dragon boaters have a healthy appreciation for the Portland Challenge! Last but not least, here is the line-up of bands for the afterparty back at The Slammer: Horse Fingers, Big Duck, Los Chinches (NYC) and Le onde del cielo (Switzerland). See you on Challenge Day!
