Pages of History: Smith River boatsmen hurl gauntlet

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, April 1955:

With only one entry yet listed from Klamath in Sunday’s second annual Smith River boat race sponsored by American Legion Post 712, Smith River boatsmen today tossed the gauntlet to their southern Del Norte County counterparts. 

Recalling that last year “we got walked on plenty,” a statement issued by the sportsmen says, “We dare them to come up for the races ... but our riffles are plenty rugged and those lacking boating skill and river experience should not try to run them.”
