ROUND ONE Canoe Club Challenge - Saturday June 18th

Last year we dominated the field and won the Club Challege and a new Jackson Villiam which we raffled off at the Christmas Party. Lets do it again!! Come out and be a part of a fun event! I will be the coordinator for this round and will be at the NOC around noon. Please email me (cheskab@yahoo.com) if you plan on attending so I can have a head count.

Below is the information from the NOC website in the CCC. Wayner will be going over the course at 2:30, and we can run the course from 3-6.

In addition, after this round the NOC will be hosting a send off of sorts for Wayner.

Thank you and please feel free to email or call me (7707783491) with any questions.


Note: All types of boats are welcome...kayaks, canoes, C-1s (just no composite race boats). 

From the NOC:

NOC Canoe Club Challenge, Round 1

Looking to mix up your usual paddling routine? We'll have a
challenging, but "first
timer friendly" slalom course
set up between the bridges, and we'll be timing boaters' runs
through the course from 3pm to 6pm on each day of the
event. The races are open to anyone and everyone, but there
will also be a special trophy awarded to the canoe club
with the most points at the end of the event series.

Paddlers can make as many runs through the course as they'd
like, only their best time will count. Also, there are no penalties for hitting a gate, but paddlers must go through each
gate in the correct order for their run to count in the final
scoring. Each completed run earns points toward the trophy.
Each club will be timing their participants runs from the old
steel bridge.

Finally, note that the Canoe Club Challenge is more about
having "big boomin' fun," meeting other boaters and learning how to improve your paddling skills with gates than winning time trials. Come prepared to have good time on the water with friendly paddlers.

Warm Up:
Paddlers are welcome to practice on the course all day
leading up to the event, and at 2:30 pm 1996 Canoe/Kayak Olympian Wayne Dickert will be on hand for a demo run of the course and to give out advice, tips and encouragement to paddlers.

Awards will be at Slow Joe's Cafe at 7 pm. NOC will have prizes such as free gear or gift cards to the participants with the best time, most runs, etc
The event will end around 6pm, giving paddlers plenty
of time to change, eat and relax before the awards ceremony at 7 pm and free live music starting at The Pourover at 8:30.
