If it is storming on Saturday at 8:00 a.m. (thunder, lightning, heavy downpour,) we will delay Riversweep until 10:00 a.m. If it is still storming, then we will cancel and announce the rain date as soon as a decision is made.
If it is only drizzling, we will hold Riversweep as scheduled. 
An e-mail will be sent on Saturday morning if the event is delayed or cancelled.


Lake Wylie Riversweep still needs your help. Please go to the site of your choice and register Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m. on May 21, 2016. There are 14 sites to choose from. If you are a group of ten or more, please contact Connie Miller at for assistance.
