The Annual Not-NPFF Race - The Jess Cup
The annual Not-NPFF Downriver Race and Club Championship will be held Saturday on Elkhorn Creek. Race begins at noon and check-in is at Elkhorn / AW Acres. You don’t have to compete to go down river – but dress warmly. The Not-NPFF race is not associated with NPFF, and no liability is assumed by NPFF or its volunteers. Hence, the Not-NPFF name.
