A few updates!
First, the Cortland YMCA announced that the Cortland Canoe Classic has been canceled this year again due to lack of pre-registrations. This is too bad as the CCC has been a race with a long history in New York. Hopefully the race can get straightened out next year.
Announcement on facebook. "The Cortland Canoe Classic for this year has been cancelled due to lower than anticipated pre-enrollment. Sorry for the inconvenience." - Cortland County Family YMCA
