Zoar Staff Paddling, Riverfest and Lozer Cup

posted on by Ben Natusch

Another American Whitewater Deerfield Riverfest has come and gone.  This is one of the busiest weekends on the Deerfield and always a great time.  The weekend started with one of the biggest Thursday night Zoar Staff Paddling trips we’ve ever run with over 20 people showing up.  We had some brand new boaters, several boaters trying to brush up on skills and shake off the rust to get ready for the Dryway and some instructors that were looking to have some fun on the water and avoid the heat.  Fifey was scheduled to run pretty late so we put on at Fisherman’s Bend.  After doing some wet exits and basic instruction with the new paddlers, we headed downstream.  It was a really fun evening.  It was really great watching everyone improve and try new things.
