While the racing caused most of the excitement, there was a scary moment on Sunday afternoon as one of the boats caught fire.  A team from New Zealand lost a boat, but everyone was able to escape the fire without injury.

The Peace Country River Rats would like to thank all their sponsors, volunteers and fans for helping to make this event a success.

On top of the racing, the club also drew for the grand prize winners for their $10,000 raffle.  Below are the winners:

Angela Prevost $10,000
Leanne Humphrey $3,000
Brad Small $2,000
