Slalom

Off the Couch and into the Canoe

It's  Saturday Sept. 10th, the  morning of the 3rd Annual Cullowhee  Canoe Slalom and time is drifting down stream. As it floats past, Mairi Padgett leisurely makes her way down to the Tuckaseegee. She arrives at 9:30 believing to be half an hour early to scope out the scene and meet up with fellow Landmarkian Kevin Williams. What she realizes all to quickly is that the slalom race, which benefits CuRvE (the Cullowhee Revitalization Endeavor), was already 30 minutes into full swing. With no time to spare she dashes back to her car, snags her PFD and seeks out Kevin.
