Brinkman and Team 456 Support Austin Area Musicians in the Texas Water Safari
A one-of-a-kind 40-foot aluminum canoe, 260 miles, 100 hours and six good friends; Those are only a few of the statistics our CFO, Johannes Brinkman will face this weekend in his canoe team’s annual adventure, called the Texas Water Safari.
For the 2nd year, the trek takes Team 456 and the 260 miles from San Marcos to Seadrift, Texas. Along with 113 other teams, they will have just 100 hours to get themselves and their loaded 400-pound canoe through multiple rapids, around eight dams, past the infamous two mile log jam, across San Antonio Bay and over the finish line.
“This year we are dedicating our effort in support of HAAM – Health Alliance of Austin Musicians. HAAM provides access to affordable health care for low-income, uninsured, working Austin musicians, with a focus on prevention and wellness,” says Brinkman.

And, if you’re in Austin on June 15th, there is an After Race Party at 7:00pm at the North Austin Trailer Yard: https://www.facebook.com/AustinNATY/info. There will be music, tall tales, sponsor prizes, and free beer courtesy of our sponsor, Guadalupe Brewing.
Best of luck to Johannes and Team 456!
