CANCELLED – 2021 Mike Doyle Memorial Race

April 25

Ohio Paddlers:

The Mike Doyle Memorial Canoe & Kayak Race, scheduled Sunday, April 25th at Lake White, has been cancelled.

I was informed today that ODNR/Ohio State Parks, will not issue me a permit to host the event until after June 1st. June 1st is contingent on improved statewide COVID-19 conditions.

I promise to try again next year. The good news is that the old Marina, located beside the beach area, has been torn down. In its place will be a new shelter house with restrooms. Construction is scheduled to begin in September so it could be ready for our use next April.

Stay safe and healthy!
