Quiet Spring On Waters For SLV Paddlers

St. Lawrence Valley Paddlers News Letter

The world has changed for each of us since our last news brief and we hope that this issue finds you and your family well!  As events are canceled and we practice social distancing, life is stranger than we could have predicted a few weeks ago. 

We are all striving to stay active and healthy and looking forward to the time when we can meet up on the water again!

2020 Canton Canoe Weekend Canceled

The Canton Canoe Weekend committee regrets to announce that Canton Canoe Weekend, including the C-1 Pro World Championships, C-1/K-1 Amateur Races, J.H. Rushton Recreational Races and Joe Randi Rushton Relay scheduled for May 2nd, as well as the C-2/Special K Race scheduled for May 3rd are canceled for 2020.

After considering the health and safety of everyone involved, current travel restrictions and the limited ability of our support businesses to participate for the foreseeable future, this was our only option. We cannot postpone without conflicting with another established race, or without knowing if there will be enough water to run the events later in the season. However, we do hope to host a scaled down 59th Annual event which would include the Rushton Recreational Races and the Joe Randi Rushton Relay Races, in late summer or early fall. We will keep you posted!
