RiverFest Kayak & Canoe Races, September 24
All skill levels welcomed!
We’ll have outrageous trophies for winners, and a “sweep team” of volunteers will be there to assist if needed and to bring up the rear so that no racer finishes last. Paddlers must be 18 years of age and wear a US Coast Guard approved life vest.
Free, convenient parking for registered paddlers plus assistance loading and unloading your boats.
Check-in opens at 9:00 am at the Washington College boathouse.
Entry fee is $25 per paddler.
Poker Run ONLY fee is $10
Race registrants are automatically entered in Paddlers’ Poker Run. They’ll also receive a guide to the many beautiful paddling routes that grace Maryland’s upper Eastern Shore.
The Paddlers’ Poker Run with cash prizes is open to all registered paddlers. Participating “card sharks” follow a course to five different kiosks along the river, from which each paddler takes a sealed envelope containing a playing card. Paddlers can collect their cards anytime before 2:30. At 3:30 paddlers assemble and open their five envelopes at once to see who drew the winning hand. a second draw poker hand will follow as players buy up to three new cards to try and complete their straight, or flush or full house, etc.
THE ONLINE SUBMISSION IS CLOSED. IF YOU ARE STILL INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING IN RIVERFEST
