CELINA — Citing low lake levels and boater safety concerns, the organizers of the Governor’s Cup Regatta decided to cancel the race scheduled for Aug. 25 and 26.
“It was an awful decision,” Regatta President Allen Baskett told The Evening Leader Monday morning. “We’ve been watching the situation during the last few weeks, hoping to have days like this that would really make a difference. We still had money to raise and we felt like we could do it but then we came up against this obstacle.”
