FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hahira, GA, October 15, 2021 —
We have a group coming three hours from Dublin, GA,
to paddle down the Withlacoochee River from Georgia three miles into Florida, and back upstream, in the WWALS Boomerang, one week from now, Saturday, October 23, 2021.
Last year’s winner came from Tallahassee, FL.
In one week, you could be the winner of the $100 First Prize!
Or win in one of the many categories.
Today is the last day for the
$20 early bird tickets.
Later it’s $30 online or at the event.
Canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards are welcome to register starting at 9 AM, Saturday, October 23, 2021, to be on the water by 10:45 AM.
There will be prizes, and food, and drink.
You do not even have to bring a boat, if you reserve soon and let us know
what type of boat you need: kayak or canoe, single or tandem.
Free boat rental is provied by
Madison Outpost Adventures of Lee, Madison County, Florida,
and VSU CORE of Valdosta, Lowndes County, Georgia.
Boomerang mastermind Bobby McKenzie says, “Water levels were steadily dropping and now they are rising slightly.”
We have a plan if the Withlacoochee River is running too fast to paddle up;
we’ll just straighten out the course to go to Sullivan Landing.
“This is a great way to bring the outdoors community together and showcase the recreational opportunities we have to offer locally,”
Bobby McKenzie added.
“This event caters to all ages and skill levels, you can either blaze ahead and take first place overall, or push yourself for a personal achievement on the main course or one of the modified routes. You can even just come do a leisurely paddle with like minded outdoor enthusiasts. Just remember to make your way back before the time expires, at most will be 2.5 hours.”
