Great Day in Grand Marais

     Team Gunflint surprised themselves at yesterday’s Dragon Boat Festival by taking 2nd Place overall at the races in the Grand Marais Harbor.  Some of the team had never paddled in a dragon boat until yesterday but you wouldn’t have been able to tell that from watching them.

     Not only did they do a fantastic job paddling but also had a ton of fun in the sun.  It was a gorgeous day on Lake Superior and the sun was shining brightly.  The festive atmosphere in the team tent area and all over Grand Marais kept everyone smiling all day long. 

     Our Team Gunflint only races in the Grand Marais Harbor once a year.  It would be fun to participate at more races like a team from north of our border but our team’s general consensus was we wouldn’t want to have to wear spandex and take the races so seriously.  Our team is filled with competitive leaders who like to win but who like to have fun just as much.

     If you ever get the chance to participate in the races then go for it.  It’s a blast.  Way to go team Gunflint!
