2013 MACHIAS RIVER RACE... BENEFITTING THE DOWN EAST LAKES LAND TRUST

2013 MACHIAS RIVER RACE...         BENEFITTING THE DOWN EAST LAKES LAND TRUST

29 JANUARY 2013

       A LETTER FROM THE MACHIAS RIVER CANOE RACE DIRECTOR

Mark, Dave and Matt: 

I am attaching a copy of the 2013 informational sheet for the Machias River Race. 

We are pleased to announce that the  Downeast Lakes Trust   is the race beneficiary this year.  DLT is a great cause and gives us all the more reason to make it a “profitable” year. 

DIRIGO Search and Rescue has been providing competent safety and comprehensive emergency planning for our paddlers for many years.  We appreciate DIRIGO’s efforts and we are thankful for their assistance again this year!

Last year, we quietly introduced a tremendous addition to the race in the form of the facilities of the Wilderness Lodge which is operated by non-other than the Eagle Mountain Guide Service.  I know, you are asking yourself “where is Eagle Mountain?”  It doesn’t matter.  We are using the facilities of the Wilderness Lodge just two miles west of the Airline Bridge as our registration headquarters.  Overnight lodging is available on a first come, first serve basis.  The owners, Matt and Lisa Whitegiver, are delightful hosts and have agreed to put up with us again this year.  Matt promises a BIG outdoor fire the night before the race.  The Centerville Cellar Savers are on notice.

Finally, I want to especially thank this year’s premiere, gold-level sponsors:  Solartechnic Contractors, Inc. and Bill Deighan’s outfit.  The name of Bill’s outfit was for some reason not listed in the yellow pages at the time of this press release.  Thanks, fella!  We couldn’t do it without your hard earned money.

Greg

Sounds like a great time to be had by all.... I'll start collecting the fire wood. I think a load of Peavey slab will do the trick.

The informational sheet & the race application are below for your convienience. You should be able to print them both from here.

Hope to see you in April...

Matt,

Eagle Mountain
