Rafters make party of chilly New Year river trip

RIVER SPORTS — Members of Northwest Whitewater call their New Year Day tradition on the Spokane River the “Only Fools Float the River on the First,” event —  and they had no shortage of numb skulls aboard this year. 

The 20th annual Fools Float on Tuesday included 19 boats and 32 people braving temps that ranged around 23 degrees, reports organizer Paul Delaney.
