MAC Race #3: Fentress to Luling 90 gravel bar
April 3, 2016 @ 9:00 am$5
Hosted by the Martindale Athletic Club, the third race in the series will start at the Hwy 20 bridge in Fentress and finish in Martindale and finish at the Luling 90 gravel bar in Luling (approx 13.5 miles).
Entry fee will be $5 per person, and all types of craft will be encouraged to attend, from 6 man to aluminum to plastic sit on tops.
Races will start at 9am, except for the night race from Palmetto to Gonzales.
For those who can’t decide what boat to bring, we will have a ‘featured’ class which will change for each race. The featured class is TBD for race #3.
There will be a small amount of money and other prizes available for that class only. We have not finalized the payout yet, but it would be something along the lines of prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd overall with special recognition cash for first female, first female masters, and first male masters.
This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t show up if you’re not going to be racing in the featured class. We are hoping for a great turnout in all classes across the board – the real intention for these races is to get people out and paddling together, whether you’re a novice or curmudgeonly old veteran. If you are new to the paddling scene, or training for the TWS, these events are a great chance to see the river and meet some of your fellow paddlers.
Also, if anyone is interested in volunteering, please let the MAC know.
