Pine River Turtle Race

Today's highlight on the Pine River was the First Annual Rotary Club of St Clair Pine River Turtle Race. Numbered tickets were sold as a fund raiser for the event. Over 4,800 numbered plastic turtles were dumped into a controlled area along the sea wall across the river from us. Powered by wind and current in the river, they floated a course for about two hundred feet before declaring First, Second, and Third places paying out $1,500, $1,000, and $500 winnings respectively.
