Scantic Spring Splash
The Scantic River Watershed Association is happy to announce the 28th Annual Scantic Spring Splash Canoe and Kayak Race to benefit the Enfield Food Shelf will take place Saturday March 30st 2019.
There will also be the annual fund raising event on Tuesday, March 26th at the Powder Hollow Brewery in Enfield, CT starting at 6:00 PM. For a $20.00 donation contributors will receive a token for one of the many locally brewed beers and will be able indulge in a buffet dinner. Videos and pictures of past races will be featured along with various raffles.
This is going to be a very special race as this is the second year the race will be held without having to portage around the Springborn Dam. Racers and paddlers are rejoicing again at the thought of running the whole race course without the mandatory portage at the dam. They are not going to miss having to portage up the dreaded Heart Attack Hill. The CT DEEP did a wonderful job of removing the dam last year which opened up that part of the river to the paddlers. By removing the dam it has created at least 5 more new rapids or quick water for the paddlers to challenge themselves.
