We couldn’t be more pleased to announce the grand success of this year’s Great Muskoka Paddling Experience where 211 paddlers in 182 boats resulted in a $4,500 donation to the Muskoka Watershed Council and Friends of the Muskoka Watershed. Huge thanks go to Sandy Schofield (pictured right), the creator, heart and soul of the Paddling Experience, along with Dennis Lawson (left), also a GMPE organizer seen here presenting the cheque to Dr. Norman Yan, Chair of the Friends of the Muskoka Watershed.
As an added, and very effective, participant incentive this year, two stand-up paddle boards were generously donated by Mike & Dave Fekete of KayakSport Canada of Toronto. Pictured here are our 2 winners, female and male, of the 5km SUP race – Danielle Holdsworth and Nick Boldt. Congratulations Danielle and Nick on being the fastest SUP paddlers. And a BIG THANK YOU to Mike and Dave for supplying the boards.
See you on the river next year!
