Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race

Paddle Smart Symposium 2012


The 2012 Paddle Smart Symposium kicks off this Friday-Saturday-Sunday at the Bangor Auditorium.

The Bangor Boat Show is taking place at the same time, so now there's double the amount of fun!

There will be workshops, demos, Q&A sessions with paddlers (including Mackro, the Maine Canoe & Kayak Racing Organization) and more safety tips than you can shake a paddle at.

If you are new to the Kenduskeag this is a good opportunity to ask veteran paddlers about race prep and other nuggets of wisdom.

See you there!

PS - here's a downloadable/printable PDF file of the Paddle Smart poster.


Paddle Smart 2011

It's that time of the year again!

The 2011 Paddle Smart Symposium (always fun and interesting) will be held this upcoming weekend, Saturday AND Sunday, at the Bangor Auditorium.

This is a change of venue for Paddle Smart; it is going to be held in conjunction with the Bangor Boat Show. So now you have TWO good reasons to attend!

MaCKRO (Maine Canoe & Kayak Racing Organization) will host a "Prep For The Kenduskeag" workshop once again, on Saturday from 1-3pm. If you'd like to have some tips from race veterans with regard to outfitting your boat or general questions about getting ready for the race, you'll want to sit in on this popular discussion!

Unfortunately I will miss out on Paddle Smart this year as I will be out of town this weekend. Bummer! I think one must be present at the drawing to win the sea kayak, but I plan to buy a couple of tickets to show a little support for the venue anyway.

Full schedule and info is available via Castine Kayak.
