Canoe race to stop in Calico Rock

Thursday, July 24, 2008

Again this year, Calico Rock will be the site of team changes for the National Invitational Venturing/BSA White River Canoe Race.

This year as many as 200 entrants are expected.

The team changing itself has become one of the most enjoyable events for Calico Rock residents, as well as tourists. At about 8:30 a.m. on July 25, vehicles will begin dropping off canoes and canoers at the river access under the bridge. At about 10 a.m. the canoes will start coming in off the river, having completed the day's first leg of the trip.

The teams quickly change out canoes and canoers who then continue on down the river.

Everyone is invited to come and enjoy this wonderful tradition, now in its 42nd year.
