Team Up for SUP-Squatch Supremacy at Nottingham Lake
Avon, CO – The Town of Avon, alongside Stand Up Paddle Colorado, will host a stand-up paddle board team “squatch” race on Nottingham Lake on Sunday, September 5th. The race is part of several aquatic competitions during the weekend-long Summer’s End festivities. The race will begin at approximately 2:00 p.m. on the Nottingham Beach and will require teams of up to eight paddlers work together to move up the brackets and win the ultimate victory.
Eight teams will face off on a fast and furious there-and-back course and move up the bracket through seven rounds of eliminations. Teams may consist of up to eight paddlers on one board, so bring your family and friends for the best chance at the top spot. A maximum of eight teams may register, so act fast and put your name in the ring at Active.com. Registration fees are $5 per individual or a maximum of $40 for a team of eight. For more information about the rules and other Summer’s End activities, visit Avon.org.
Competitors can bring their own equipment or rent from Stand Up Paddle Colorado on Nottingham Beach.
After the final paddler crosses the finish line, stick around for the Cardboard Boat Regatta, then head over to The Terrace on the back of the Avon Performance Pavilion for SunsetLIVE! starting at 3:00 p.m. Featuring Turntable Revue and then Robby Peoples Band.
