Missouri River Relief Hosting 2021 MR340........

 

Officials have announced that starting in 2021, Missouri River Relief will be hosting the Missouri American Water MR340 paddling race.  For the last 15 years, the event had been organized and hosted by Rivermiles.

 

The MR340 is a non-stop 340 mile race along the lower Missouri River, between Kansas City and St. Charles.  Canoeists, kayakers and stand-up paddlers take part in this race that is known as the world's longest non-stop paddling race. 

 

The 2021 MR340 race is scheduled for July 20th through July 23rd.  Participants must complete the race in 84 hours.  Even though Missouri River Relief will acquire and host the MR340, Rivermiles will still be involved as a contractor in all aspects of the race.........

Mississippi River At Hannibal, Missouri

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony For Hannibal Riverfront........

 

At 10 am Thursday, July 22, 2021, there will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate Hannibal's riverfront being open for tourists and residents to enjoy.  The public is invited to the ceremony.

 

Last fall, the construction on the riverfront was completed by Bleigh Construction Co, as well as subcontractors and employees of the Hannibal Board of Public Works.

 

The riverfront project addressed multiple infrastructure problems, provided docking locations for two large riverboats as well as the Mark Twain Riverboat and Canton Marine Towing.  The project also involved the construction of a new marina and boat ramps among other improvements.........

Illinois River Near Bath, Illinois

Asian Carp Fishing Tournament Is Returning Next Month........

 

The central Illinois fishing tournament that was cancelled for the past two years due to flooding and then the COVID-19 outbreak will be returning to Bath, Illinois next month. 

 

The Redneck Fishing Tournament is slated for August 6 - 7, 2021.  This tournament is one of the more creative responses to the Asian carp invasion into the Illinois River.

 

THe fish are known to jump into the air with the sound of boat engines, so instead of using fishing poles to catch the carp, they will be using nets to catch them in the air........
