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.

Aye, it's a bit early this year. This photo was taken about twenty minutes ago (3/9/12) in downtown Bangor.

In two weeks the 12th Annual Paddle Smart Symposium will kick off at the Bangor Boat Show (Bangor Civic Auditorium, March 24th & 25th).

And in three weeks? The first whitewater race of the season, the St. George River Race.

More to come....


2012 Race Registration Now Available!

It's the first of March and much of Maine is looking at blizzard conditions today.

If you are daydreaming about springtime, join the club! And if you are daydreaming about springtime paddling, join the race.

There's a new class this year, by the way. "Corporate Class" is for two paddlers from the same company. (No, it's not canoe outfitted with plush seats and cocktail service).

Remember, pre-registration saves you time and money!
