FIRECRACKER RACE CANCELED.

We look to have too much river, even next weekend. So we will have to look to next year. Drat.

Refunds will be provided as an option to all who formally registered. Keep in mind the race was to raise funds for supporting the water trail on the Mississippi River and so you can consider donation of your registration fee to a good cause. Those that registered will get an email in this regard.

River is as River does.

Sounds good Bryan. Are you using a current river channel marker for the turn around at 3 miles up or you setting your own? Savanna has a break in her cross country shedule so it looks like we can make your race! Smiley
Thanks Mike

Whew!  If you are racing K2 then us solo's have a chance.  Of course if you are racing K1 we can shamelessly try to ride your wake!  Great you can come.  Look forward to seeing you all there.

Have done the Firecracker, absolutely great race, people and celebration. With the paddling clinics, it's even better. Will the clinics be running concurrently or back-to-back so people can attend both?
Highly recommend this race. If you're unable to paddle, it's still a good one to come out, watch and be part of.

Barring storms I plan to be there.  Looking forward to the clinics... can always sharpen the edge with double blade technique and would love some feedback on single balding the OC-1

Whew!  Was worried we would be dodging lightening like the first time we held the Firecraker (let's just say....there was cracking going on!).

Will be there.  Bummed about the Grunt and 5 Miler.  BTW....paddle clinics still on for the new date?
