A Special Thank you to Dave Mendez, Parks Operations who provided security and unwavering support at Schimmel City in Farley.
This Annual 16 mile Float event was from Schimmel City River Access in Farley to Platte Landing Park in Parkville. A Free event that provided 2 shuttle buses for paddlers back to the starting point. So all folks had to do was float to their car, load up and leave. No worries!! Kansas City Kayak & Canoe, LLC equipped 22 paddlers with kayaks, paddles and PFD's this year.
Thank you to everyone who attended and to Doug, Conservation Agent and Mike from the Sherriff's dept who provided safety boats. Also to Dean & Curtis who assisted in the boats.
Pictured above are Rusty & Amber Coons local Platte County residents in their 27' canoe. MR340 veterans, they are no strangers to the Mighty MO. They brought the youngest participant, their 10 year old son. Thumbs UP!
