Official letter from Curley Memorial Race
We truly had a hard time making this decision, but after much discussion the Curley Committee has decided to cancel the 2020 race. We are hoping to be able to provide some activities in town that weekend, but due to restrictions on Consumers property and other factors out of our control we decided the best option was to cancel the race. Stay tuned we will be updating you as soon as we have more information.

The Roscommon Canoe Classic 2020 results are posted
Yesterday the MDNR contacted Sean Brabant letting him know that they were issuing permits for the Roscommon Canoe Classic (June 6 – 7) and the Muskegon River Throw Down (June 27 – 28). Just two weeks ago they communicated there would be no marine permits in 2020, so needless to say we were surprised. The races have to follow the social distancing recommendations that they have worked out with the MDNR. These are noted on the race information pages.
We will still have the virtual Roscommon Race, but people can only get prizes in the virtual or live race – you can’t double dip. We will continue to have two virtual races a month, so people can participate without traveling if they so choose.
