I just found out some special information from the AZDBA festival committee:
1000-Meter Race Course:Â Weâ€™ve listened to the teams and there will be a new format to the 1000-meter races!Â Instead of racing four boats at the same time, we will be releasing boats in waves, so that all teams will race the same lane, ensuring a more fair race.
Â Here is the cool part:
500-Meter Relay Fun Race:Â This year, we will be introducing a new relay race on Saturday just for fun!Â Each â€œteamâ€ will be made up of two boats with a minimum of 16 paddlers on each boat. Â Teams may combine with other teams.Â The first boat will start at the finish line and race to the 250-meter mark, in which the second boat will take over and race from the 250-meter mark back to the finish line.Â If youâ€™re interested in participating, please let us know!Â There is no charge for this special Relay Fun Race
