Despite the heavy rain we’ve gotten, the Saturday Roanoke River float planned by the Float Fishermen of Virginia is still on. Ken Ingram, the float’s organizer, sent below note earlier today. I’m just posting it now because I’ve been out on an assignment (getting soaked) all day. The event starts at 9:30 a.m. at Rotary Park in Salem, just downstream from the intersection of Apperson and Electric Road.
The article today was great. I’ve gotten quite a few calls today so the word is getting out.If you have time to get something in the paper, please remind people to bring safety gear.”
