To Our Michigan Paddlers:
We are happy to announce that we will be hosting the annual Power Paddle this year!
This event will look different then years past as we will be taking additional precautions and safety measures to ensure the health and safety of our racers, staff and volunteers.
Some of those measures (but not limited to) will include:
-Limiting the race to 50 participants
-Online only pre-registration & payment
-Conducting only C1 Races
-Social Distancing
-Requiring racers to wear a face covering when not actively paddling on the water
-Requiring staff, volunteers and spectators to have a face covering on during the event.
Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for more information regarding the Power Paddle date (TBD). We will be releasing more information as it becomes available to us.
Again, thank you for your support and understanding during these challenging times.
Paddle On,
Newaygo Nationals Association
