    Good Morning All, I want to be able to say, “See you at the races!” but after carefully considering all of the factors and input, we’ve decided to cancel the first two races, Punch Brook and Blackwater for now, and will reassess the other races as we get a bit closer to those dates. So stay tuned. And get out there and paddle! (Just, you know, in groups of ten or less 😉).

    UPDATE 4/13/2020:
    I’m sure you knew this was coming, but we will also be canceling the Kenduskeag and Fiddlehead for this year. Clayton has said there might be some gates up for informal practice runs at the site – we’ll keep you posted about that.

    UPDATE 4/15/2020:
    The T-Ville NESS race, and also Triple Crown (not a NESS race) have been canceled for this year, BUT… they may just be postponed to sometime in August. It’s kind of hard to schedule anything for sure these days though, so stay tuned for that.

    UPDATE 4/18/2020:
    Covered Bridge has been canceled for this year as well.

    UPDATE 6/4/2020:
    The Winni Slalom has been canceled for this year.
