Paddle Scrabble is for paddlers who don’t want to race – flat out!!Paddlegaine meets brain-teasing scrabble in this activity-packed 3-hour event, where you and your team strategize your own route to get to the most checkpoints and unscramble words at them, plus get bonus points for collecting rubbish and spotting birds and wildlife! A fun way to explore the beautiful southern Myall Lakes area, test your kayaking fitness, strategizing skills and word prowess, and share a good few laughs with your teammates and others.This recreational event is run in conjunction with the Paddle NSW Myall Classic race, so you can mingle and celebrate with race-goers after their events and presentation ceremony. The Paddle Scrabble is being run by RCC, so there will be plenty of friends and familiar faces there as well as meeting others in the paddling community.
Then in the evening, be inspired by paddling films and hang out with other kayakers at the World Paddling Film Festival, hosted by Lazy Paddles. A bunch of us will either camp the night or stay in a house by the lakes, to explore further and/or chillax on the Sunday. So – a fun, social weekend awaits! Grab some friends or family for a team!
