Our coaches will create equally balanced team boat combinations by matching some of our younger developing athletes with our High Performance and Master's athletes. This event will be run in a knock out format on a 150m course.

--Knock out format: All team boats will race the 150m course. The slowest 1-2 boats will be eliminated. All remaining team boats will race the 150m course a second time and again the slowest 1-2 boats will be eliminated. This process repeats until we have our final raining NPC Team boat knock out champions! Handicaps may be given to equal out the playing field.

12:30 - NPC Potluck, Rowing Club will also be invited to participate in Pot Luck

2:00- CARDBOARD KAYAK RACE! More information and registration coming soon...
