Canceled for 2021

Latest News Update for Winni Slalom:

  • 2021 Winni Canceled

    May 11, 2021amyhunt

    It is with GREAT remorse that I’m posting this – the Winni NESS race is canceled for 2021. Unfortunately, the Open Canoe Nationals in Montana conflicts with the race and I was not able to move the date for either the Winni release OR the Nationals but lord knows I tried. Sorry for the disappointing news. Two things to note though – there might still be a (non NESS) slalom race at the site that weekend put on by Outdoor New England – stay tuned for more info there, and the NESS Winni WILL be back in 2022. I Promise.
