There’s a new paddling race event in Townsend Wi along the beautiful Townsend Flowage. The first annual Northwoods Paddlin’ Shootout, June 10th, 11th and 12th will feature five paddle sports races on a ½ mile closed course around four turns. Participants in Kayak Singles, Pro Kayak Singles, Kayak Doubles, Canoe Doubles and Paddleboard Singles will challenge the course and each other during the three day event. Participants from the local area, around the state and the Midwest are expected to compete for cash prizes and the “Thrill of Victory.”
Hopefully the Northwoods Paddlin’ Shootout will grow to be a first class annual event and is produced by FishingBoatingOutdoor of Lakewood, Wisconsin with collaboration by selected businesses, groups and individuals.
