For the first time ever, registration for the Canoe Showdown will be free. 

To create a community event, and encourge participation, race Director Terry Newsome decided in early October to remove the registration fee. Terry explained "We want to remove all barriers to racing and get everyone on the water. With flat and protected conditions this is an event for everyone including those new to the sport or racing. We're also expecting some highly experienced paddlers, so even though anyone can get involved there will be some competitive action in specific classes."

Spaces are limited so early registration is encouraged.
