Clinton River Canoe Classic
Canoe racers line up for the start of the second annual Clinton River Canoe Classic sponsored by Commissioner Marrocco. The event draws entries from around the state and Canada. It is held to draw attention to the Clinton River as a regional environmental resource.
A highlight of the pre-race activities was a skyboarding exhibition on the river by an intrepid water enthusiast from Viscosity Sports of Harrison Township.
All in all, it was a great day on the river for racers, sponsors and fans. Pictured here with Commissioner Marrocco, right, is Lynne Witte, president of the Michigan Canoe Racing Association and Andrew Triebold of Grayling, Michigan, winner of the single person canoe race and a purse of $1,500.
