Joe Royer decided to move the annual Outdoors Inc. Canoe and Kayak race on the Mississippi River from May to June this year, and Saturday's weather cooperated to make it a big success.

Hundreds of paddlers in kayaks, canoes, and war canoes took part in the race the length of Mud Island. The last two years' events were cancelled due to bad weather and flooding. The river is 45 feet lower this year than it was at race time last year.
