The DTC Rotary Club will hold the Third Annual Paddle Festival (formerly the Water Toy Race) Aug. 25 at Chatfield Reservoir. DTC Rotary expects 160 fun loving, hearty souls to be met with a hot breakfast, refreshing water and a sunny day. The racers will include high school and college students, families, and adults of all ages, including teams from the Army. Participants, some in costume, will race through a goofy, creative and very wet obstacle course using inflatable kayaks, paddle boards and inner tubes, sometimes lashed together. No experience is necessary. There will also be volleyball, bean bag toss, a live band, and a fire truck from the Chatfield Fire Department for the kids or those young at heart.
Prizes will be awarded for best costumes, fastest team, and most fun to watch. Registration for a four person team is $200, and includes breakfast and the use of all water toys. The race is a blast and proceeds will support literacy projects, an anti-bullying program taught by high school students for elementary school kids, and college scholarships for students who practice “Service Above Self.” To register for the race, go to dtcrotary.org/paddle-festival-2018/. Or, if you just want to come by to watch the festivities, you’re welcome, kids as well.
