The Middleburgh Sloughter Canoe/Kayak Race will take place on April 26, 2014 after an absence of more than 20 years. This 7 mile downriver race takes place on the majestic Schoharie Creek. Registration and starting line will be at the Fultonham parking area on Rt. 30 in the town of Fulton (about 14 miles south of Interstate 88). The finish line is at the new Middleburgh pavilion in Timothy Murphy Park, just south of the intersection of rts. 145 & 30.
A quick reminder to all racers, the initial deadline for registering your official NYMCRA boat number is April 1st. You may use the printable registration form found in the newsletter or the online web form to register your boat.
If you have questions, please contact one of the NYMCRA directors.
One of the highlights in store for the 2014 racing season is the (re)introduction of the Pro-Points Series, with a prize purse of up to $1000 to be awarded at the end of season NYMCRA Banquet.
The NYMCRA Amateur Points series has been simplified and streamlined. Hopefully this will help to improve the competition level for the Points Series!
NYMCRA is also officially introducing a Boat Number system. Read about the details in the Racing Paddler on page three. If you have questions, feel free to contact one of the board members via email, or use the contact form.
It's been a long, cold winter, and I think most of us are a little behind on training, but lets make this a great racing season!
