The first buses will leave at 7:00 a.m. and the last buses at 8:30 a.m.

Canoe Rentals
The club has a limited number of aluminum canoes for rental. The price is $50.00, which includes paddles and life vests. These canoes can be picked up at the start area just before the race and dropped off at the finish line, so you don’t need to transport them. To rent one, contact Gary or Carol Hushagen 320-333-8970, 320-679-1838 or E-mail: hushagen@youbetnet.com, as soon as possible.

State Law Requirements
In accordance with MN law, PFDs (personal floatation devices) are required for each paddler.  Children under 10 must wear them at all times.  If conditions warrant, we will highly recommend that people wear them.
