What makes a team?
Teams have 16 paddlers and one drummer. It is recommended to have a few alternates. The festival crew can help you fill up your boat if you need assistance. Boats, steer-persons, life jackets, and training are provided.
The minimum age for paddlers is 12 years with signed permission by a parent/legal guardian.
How much does it cost?
The fee to enter a boat in the race is $2000. We welcome teams sponsored by local businesses. We also welcome teams of friends or family who want to raise the funds themselves.
Individual paddlers are welcome. The entry fee is $120. You will be assigned to a team prior to practice week.
All fees are nonrefundable and support SMCR, Inc.'s inclusive programs for community members with developmental differences.
Stuff you should know.
Teams are encouraged to fundraise prior to the Festival and/or plan a simple fundraising activity to host at their tent during race day.
Teams should decide on a "Team Theme" which would include team costumes and tent decorations.
Time commitments: All day race day and also a few hours for practice one night during the week before the races.
All team members are invited to attend the Opening Ceremony at 8:30 a.m. on August 15.
