Recreational Paddle Scrabble

Paddle Scrabble

Paddlegaine meets brain-teasing scrabble in this activity-packed 3-hour event, where you and your team strategize your own route to get to the most checkpoints and unscramble words at them, plus get bonus points for collecting rubbish and spotting birds and wildlife! A fun way to explore the beautiful southern Myall Lakes area, test your kayaking fitness, strategizing skills and word prowess, and share a good few laughs with your teammates and others.

This recreational event is run in conjunction with the Paddle NSW Myall Classic race, so you can mingle and celebrate with race-goers after their events and presentation ceremony. The Paddle Scrabble is being run by RCC, so there will be plenty of friends and familiar faces there as well as meeting others in the paddling community.

Then in the evening, be inspired by paddling films and hang out with other kayakers at the World Paddling Film Festival, hosted by Lazy Paddles. A bunch of us will either camp the night or stay in a house by the lakes, to explore further and/or chillax on the Sunday. So – a fun, social weekend awaits! Grab some friends or family for a team!

Okay, enough of the silent treatment. Lets make some noise about the new Myall add-ons this year.
You will see a new event held alongside the race. It's called Paddle Scrabble. Check out http://myall.paddlensw.org.au/recreational-paddle-scrabble/ for all the details.
A more relaxed, environmentally aware competition of a different nature.
On Saturday evening come along to the Paddle Film Festival, hosted by Lazy Paddles, your local paddling business. A full featured programme of new releases. See them first here. Film tickets available very soon.
Sunday, enjoy a paddle with friends downstream...there's so much to see.

Entries are open!
Get in early before the bird, or with the bird, or just ignore the bird altogether. If the bird gets there first, it'll cost you more. https://www.webscorer.com/register?raceid=143810

Found after the race:
1x lifejacket and 1x spray deck. Probably from a Uni team boat. May have been deliberately left in the park.
