Give Competitive Paddling a Try – You Might Just Find Fun, Friends, and Maybe Glory

The Illinois Paddling Council, affiliated with the United States Canoe Association (USCA) annually holds many events that qualify in its points program. USCA also has associated sister organizations in Michigan, Indiana, Iowa and other states, so once the “competitive” event bug bites you – you might just find yourself participating there as well and explore new rivers and make new friends.

 

Competitive paddling is fun, builds strength, increases stamina, improves paddling skills, forges friendships, gets you on new rivers, earns trophies and awards and can lead to “fame” – but above all – participants have lots of fun!

 

Check out the list of events on the IPC Events Calendar. If you’re not of a competitive nature – participate anyway – because you can have lots of fun even if you don’t win a trophy or medal.

 

You’ll be surprised by the many new paddling friends you may make!

    is there a way to make the black bar on the top of the home page smaller because – at least on my display – it cuts the heads off the people in the boats that are in the top pictures.

    Looks good – thanks – S
