The first annual Happy Camp River Run took place from July 6 through 8 in River Park. The event, called Rolling on the River 2001, was a considered a success, especially for a first year endeavor, drawing in over 75 bikers from out of town and 26 local registrants. Bikers came from as far away as Seattle, Washington and Phoenix, Arizona, though most of the participants were from Northern California and Southern Oregon.

Besides music from the Genuine Draft Band on Friday and Saturday nights, the River Run included a community bar-b-que, prizes for the best of bikes, and games like the Slow Race, Winnie Bite and Ball Catch.

Happy Camp Chamber of Commerce members, who planned this event, were very enthusiastic about the results and are looking forward to next year’s event which should be even better, with more advance publicity.

Pins and t-shirts with the Rolling on the River 2001 logo are still available from the Chamber of Commerce. Pins cost $5.00 and the t-shirts, available in children’s sizes up to extra large adult sizes, are $16.95.
