Fun Float / Long Island to Brookneal, Staunton (Roanoke) River / June 23 rd

This event is sponsored by the Ruritan Club, and offers t-shirts and a breakfast for a few bucks. No registration is required and there's no official start time (this is not a race), but come early to enjoy a leisurely float. Access information to the Staunton River can be found on the DGIF web site HERE.


The official date for the Fun Float is the 4th Saturday in June. In most years, that is also the last Saturday in June, but it just so happens that every five or six years there are five Saturday's in the month of June. This year is one of those years, so the Fun Float will be June 23rd, the fourth (but not the last) Saturday of the month! This last happened in 2002. The next time we have five June Saturdays will be 2012 & 2013, so mark your calendars now!

Here are a few photos from last year's Fun Float:
