HOHW – Hell or High Water
May 11 - May 12
This is non-KWP event. We do not have a club organizer attached to it. Several KWP’ers will be going. See information link at bottom of this page for registration. It is put on by the Petawawa River Rats Paddling Club and town of Petawawa. The event is a fun Down River Race through the town section of the Petawawa River (2 rapids, Class 3~4). Usually some KWP members head to this event to partake. There is a banquet, dinner and awards in the evening. While there, plan on a Sunday Upper Petawawa Trip, a great Class 4 river in the middle of Algonquin Park.
Hell or High Water occurs day one in town and the Sunday people do the Upper Petawawa. The Saturday is a rafting race run by Esprit. For kayakers we compete against the other clubs for bragging rights. For the rafts it can be beginners, for kayaks it is for intermediate/experts paddlers depending on water levels.
Campground paddlers use is Black Bear Campground, (Black Bear Campground – 154 Lieven Road CFB Petawawa, cost is $5 per person per night and we ask that you pay at Registration on Saturday morning) or people can use the Quality Inn that is sponsoring the event (10% to 25% discount for participants).
