The plans below were interrupted by the virus. We did manage to run a virtual race to help fund the Hackensack Riverkeeper.
Several Loons plan to (hopefully) compete in the competitive marathon canoe racing circuit this year. We currently have members planning to race in the General Clinton Canoe Regatta in Cooperstown, NY and the AuSable River Canoe Marathon in Grayling, MI.
One Loon was also recently featured in the Canoe Race World podcast. Click here to listen to Katie’s interview with hosts Kevin Olson and Bill Mahaffy.
The Wanda Canoe Club had a successful 2019, full of paddling, community events, and big wins at races. Enjoy the 2019 Wanda LoonsLetter (newsletter)!
