Saturday, April 7, 2012
11:00 a.m. Start
The Waldo County YMCA will be holding their second canoe race of the season! Join us as we rise to meet the challenge of low water on the river!
We are calling this race the “Passy Shoot-out or the Paddle Battle”
Registration: 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. $20 per paddler
Savage Road ~ Littlefield Farm in Waldo, Maine
This exciting race will begin at bridge at the Littlefield Farm – same as always!!! The racers will meet this exciting challenge as they head down stream for 2.5 miles. There they will be directed by a race official to turn around at a buoy station and head back up stream!
There will be one mandatory portage on the return upstream, around the Snowmobile Bridge drop. Racers will exit to the right, which will be clearly marked with surveyors tape. Once they finish the portage they will re-enter the river to finish at the bridge on Poors Mill Road.
All awards will be given out back at the start of the race on the Littlefield Farm. Maine Sport Outfitters will be on hand at the end of the race to provide racers with a hotdog lunch. One lucky racer will win a new Old Town Canoe!!
This race is generously sponsored by Viking Lumber, Camden National Bank, Zaveral Racing Equipment, Old Town Canoe, Maine Sport Outfitters, Inner Sense Screen Printing, O’Donalds Concrete, Pepsico, J.T. Rosborough, Inc. and Hannaford.
