OTHER EVENT INFORMATION

PADDLERS VILLAGE

All registered teams will be provided with a first come space within the tents of our Paddler’s Village. Each team member receives a wristband for the weekend and, in addition to allowing you to race, it also allows you access to the Village. Access to Paddler’s Village is restricted to paddlers or team members only.

TEAM FUN NIGHT

All registered teams are encouraged to attend the opening ceremony for a parade of teams to the opening. Besides listening to great music under the big tent, teams will get a chance to compete in friendly games like our World Famous Beer Paddle Races. It’s a great opportunity for teams to not only build on their own team spirit but also to share a drink and a laugh with their competitors. We hope to see all teams out for a great time!
