From Jill Champagne and Deb France, Therapists in the School at Springbrook:

We are hoping to create some awesome memories and team spirit by putting together a Springbrook team to participate in the 2019 Grand Prix Relay, a race during the General Clinton Canoe Regatta.  We invite you to join the relay team! We hope preparing for and racing in this fun and vigorous event will help us increase connections between departments, and build collaborations and strong communication among our Springbrook team!

Here are the details for the event:

The Race

A 30-mile relay canoe race consisting of 5 legs (each leg is roughly 6 miles).

The Canoeists

We need a total of 6-10 canoeists per team. Each 6-mile leg of the race will be completed by two canoeists, stationed at each exchange-point buoy. Depending on the amount of interest generated, the number of teams will increase.

The Location

The race begins at the boat launch across from the Southside Mall on Rt-23 in Oneonta and concludes at the General Clinton Park in Bainbridge.

The Date & Cost

The race is Sunday, May 26, 2019, at 9 am. The entry cost for each team is $200, which will work out to $20-33 per team member, based on the number of canoeists and boats entered into the race.

If you are interested in being a part of this Springbrook team or have additional questions not covered here, please contact Jill Champagne via email. Registration closes on Monday, April 8, so email today!
