For Immediate Release: June 28, 2013
Due to rising water levels on the flood controlled Waterbury Reservoir, Sunday’s Vermont Standup Paddleboard Festival scheduled to be held at the Waterbury Reservoir Day Use Area has been moved up the road to Elmore State Park, about 20 miles away.
The Vermont Standup Paddleboard Festival draws hundreds of people who want to try this sport for the first time. Paddleboard manufactures and reps come from all over New England to give novice paddlers a chance to try this exciting sport. The $5 festival fee goes to Friends of the Winooski River, a volunteer group dedicated to protection and restoration of the Winooski River.

The concept for the BIC SUP One Design Challenge is simple – Participants paddle around a short race course, all using the same BIC SUP 12’6 WING board.
The real accomplishment lies in the journey, not the podium. “It’s a lot like participating in your local 5K road run”, says BIC Sport Marketing Manager Jimmy Blakeney, “You sign up with your friends and family to try something new and have a good time, plus SUP is fitness disguised as fun, so you get a great workout too!” Many organizers will run weekly or monthly events, allowing participants to set goals for improvement while meeting other active people in their community who love being on the water.
