  Rookie Racers begins 5/13 in Minneapolis
  Posted by: mcimes on May-10-13 3:50 PM (EST)

Its finally warm enough! The first Monday Night Rookies is Monday, May 13th, at the East River Flats in downtown Minneapolis, 5:30-8PM. We cover about 8 miles on the Mississippi.

This is a great way to approach racing if you've never done it before. Veterans come and educate the Rookies about canoe racing. We get everyone from complete novices to veterans with 40 years racing experience! This is also a great place to find a partner for local races.

Bring your own boat and gear, or, for the first time, the Minnesota Canoe Association will have six Jensen 18's, paddles, and PFDs to use.

This event is held each week, weather permitting. This event is Free to MCA members, or $5 for non members. (Annual membership is only $20: )

Event page:

This event is focused on canoeing, but anyone is welcome if you just want to paddle with a group in your kayak or surf ski.

Week 1 had a great turn out with 20 people. We had extra boats, so invite a friend if you want.

It looks like the weather will hold out for us today. Bring a wind breaker!
