Kruger Rally 100

I was pondering the idea of hosting on a canoe/kayak rally over Labor Day Weekend August 30th Thu September 1st, 2008 on the Wisconsin River. Push came to shove, so we are doing it...

There is some great paddling to be found below the last dam from Sauk City to Wyalusing. You'll even get a taste of ole man river, the Mississippi! Roughly 100 miles. If interested read on.... :-) or for ever hold your paddle.

So the idea would be to run in Kruger canoe style, a run what you brung event. Pack your own gear, have bank support or not... what ever works for you.

No real rules, just run a safe down river trip on one very inspiring river. It is an un-official challenge for those that want to participate. A chance to be part of a design team to maybe make it an annual event, who knows...

I would like to ask for donations in lieu of registration to go to the Kruger Memorial. No pressure, if money is tight... then just come and paddle... Mark has done so much for the youth camps I'd like to give back if possible.

A return email will suffice your interest and entry to this event. Everything is on your own, so plan accordingly. Gear Shuttle Accommodation Accountability following the law are your own. Though I am willing to assist as needed to make the event happen for you.

There is a ton of information on the web about paddling the lower 92 on the Wisconsin River. It is very scenic and a pleasure to paddle. We're going just a bit further to get it closer to 100 miles...

I have set up a message board to share ideas and information in our planning. I set up some guidelines/rules for those of you that want to...well race. :-)

This paddle is going forward if it is just Mark and I on the river or 10 or more of you join us... hope to see you there and look forward to your questions and enthusiasm.

Figure a 7:00am assembly with an 8:00am start time on Saturday August 30th, 2008. There is a boat ramp just north of Hwy 12 and the Wisconsin River on the west side of the river. Plenty of stores to shop for supplies near by as well as gas stations, coffee shops and boat livery.



Thanks for your interest. - The Capt'n
