The 2012 Clearwater Canoe Regatta is fast approaching and excitement is building for some new events being offered!

So mark Sept. 7 and 8 on your calendar and join us at Dutch Lake for this year’s Canoe Regatta. It’s going to be, “Just as Wild, Just as Wacky!”

Friday night, Sept. 7’s addition will be the Stride, Bike or Trike Race for the wee ones who are not quite ready to tackle the Try the Tri. Register your child, ages two – four, bring their tricycle or bicycle (with or without pedals or training wheels – helmets mandatory) and compete in this super-fun race where everyone will be a winner!

Saturday is going to be a ton of fun also with the arrival of the Soapbox Races!  Get on the Internet and find a plan to build the wildest, wackiest racer you can! A few points to keep in mind when constructing your speed machine are that it needs to be made of wood and it will require a braking system – we don’t want any runaways! Helmets will be mandatory, but it’s a stellar idea to wear some other protective gear such as kneepads, elbow pads, and a chest protector if you have one.


Something else to get pumped about will be Saturday’s arrival of the humongous bouncy pirate ship and Cliffside Climbing’s portable climbing wall (by the way, the latter is for the adults too!).
