Lake Bemidji Dragon Boat Festival: Iowa's Cedar River Gang takes title
The Cedar River Gang wasn't expecting to win its first appearance in the Lake Bemidji Dragon Boat Festival.

Nichols and his wife, Marilyn, are the team coaches.
The Iowa-based team came into the Gold Division final with the slowest time of all four teams, but came out on top with a time of 2:06.37.
