It could be a boost to our Central Oregon economy: The Pole Peddle Paddle race breaks another record for racers. Last year, there were 3,020 racers, and this year 3,130 signed up. Race spokesperson Molly Cogswell-Kelley says that will mean more out of town guests coming to our hotels, stores and restaurants.  “Its really strange, ever since our economy took a dive our numbers went up, and I think its because many of our out of towners are not traveling so far anymore. They're not taking those big trips to Mexico; they’re coming here and spending their money here in Central Oregon." 50% of the Pole Peddle Paddle racers come from out of town. The big race is this Saturday and the Mini Pole Peddle Paddle for kids is on Sunday.
