Esquif is donating a Lite L’edge to the Nationals raffle!

Brian Heikenen, the Esquif rep, is looking for someone to give the boat a ride from Wisconsin to Montana. Anyone with extra rack space, please contact Brian (608-628-5989) or Alan (406-546-8960). Thanks!

Hey racers, canoe carts aren’t very useful at this race site, but two local schools will be doing a fundraiser carrying boats! You can use tokens to have your boat carried back to the top of the course! Tokens will be available for purchase starting Thursday afternoon and every morning before racing starts.

Avis/Budget Car Rental at the Missoula Airport is offering discounts, just mention Canoe Nationals.


Please note:  New rule allows a racer to enter an 8th class if they paddle with a Youth in Youth/Senior OC2 RACE or if they paddle with a Citizen in any tandem class for which they both are eligible. You can race more and help grow the sport! Contact Alan for a pairing with a local Montana youth. Kids from local outdoor programs and schools will be involved in slalom clinics over the coming months. Local citizens are available on a limited basis… not quite as game as our fearless young folks! Or, bring your own, in either model!
