09/11 - Great Stone Dam Classic

Thanks to the 104 paddlers -- 72 Racing, 22 Rec, and 10 Kids -- who joined us under sunny skies today for the 2nd annual Great Stone Dam Classic! Despite a river flowing at over 20,000 cfs and a windy upper course, we saw record times in K-1 by Hugh Pritchard, in C-2 by Adam Gelinas and Matt King, and in K-2 by Bill Baker and David Vandorpe. Other highlights included the exciting finish in C-2 Mixed, and a remarkable 20 racing kayaks on the line for the 8.5-mile race.

Thanks to our friends at Willarts for taking some great photos.

Thanks to all of the volunteers who made this event possible, including but not limited to our race timers and registrars, boathouse staff, food crew, and the indomitable Lawrence ROTC students. And thanks to our sponsors, who you'll find listed at sites.google.com/site/greatstonedamclassic/home/our-partners. Their financial and in-kind support offset our costs, so that your registration fees will be donated to the Greater Lawrence Community Boating Program and the 9/11 Memorial and Museum. Plus racers donated a total of 4 large boxes of food to the Lazarus House food pantry.

We look forward to seeing you next year!
