This from the Flatwater Foundation:

 

Due to current lake conditions and flood gate activity, The Flatwater Foundation has postponed the 7th Annual Tyler’s Dam That Cancer fundraising event to Monday, July 11, 2016. The event, a 21-mile course from Mansfield Dam on Lake Austin to Tom Miller Dam (Hula Hut) made by 160 participants on stand-up paddleboards, and the welcome-to-shore celebration were originally slated for Monday, June 13.
The safety of all participants and staff is a top priority, and the current waterways pose many hazards for recreational activities. Tyler’s Dam That Cancer will be moved to July 11 to allow flood waters to subside. Despite this shift, The Flatwater Foundation and event participants are eager to continue efforts in training and fundraising leading up to the event.
