The 2020 Reliable Diamond Tool Parker Enduro presented by Nick Rose Insurance was held Oct. 31 at La Paz County Park. A total of 26 boats and drivers competed for the title of “King of the River.”

“A big thank you to the RPM Staff and WMI Rescue and all the volunteer patrol/river closure boats that made this event a great success!” the statement continued. “Thanks to Dave Prefling and the entire staff at La Paz County Park for hosting us!”
