There has been a need for a single place to find out
what the kayaking event schedule is, what each event is about, etc.. Kristine
and I will be keeping it up to date, to the best of our ability. You will
find information that will help you decide what events you think will
be fun for you to attend, what are important to attend if you are trying
to move up the ranks in freestyle or extreme or boatercross. I will put
up some slalom information as well, but only what information I get. I
am just getting back into slalom this coming year with my kids, so I am
not an expert on that scene right now.
