The Maumee Valley Tri-Adventure race is May 19th, 2012, this is a Tri-Athalon – starting with a 36 mile biking, 6 miles of canoe or kayaking, finally 6 miles of hiking with a back pack. The Boating starts at Independence Dam near Defiance, ending at Florida, 6 miles.
Larry Lindsay, coordinator of this event, would like the NWORR and North West Ohio Canoe and Kayak (Defiance) club’s members to help him. He needs our help to “police” the 6 mile route for safety, making sure life vest are on and secured also for any dangerous situation a paddler might encounter while in the competition.
We will need 5-7 of our members to be available on Saturday May 19th, 2012 with their canoe/kayaks at Independence Dam and staged along the Maumee river to Florida (Ohio).

Also Larry Lindsay will try to be at our February 28th meeting, to answer any questions and possibly bring a couple of Boy Scouts from the Swanton Area!
We can work out the transporting of Canoe/Kayaks as the event gets closer!
