Throwdown – A Simple Rodeo
INTRODUCING THE WORLD KAYAK HOMETOWN THROWDOWN
World Kayak has become that international organization and spark that is bringing participation numbers up in whitewater. Set up in 2007, World kayak has begun a number of programs, including: > Ambassador Development Program > Web Program > Parks and Camp Learn to Kayak Program > Events Program > Communications Program A key focus for WK is to generate a growing number of community activities in every paddling region. One of our principal activities will be the World Kayak Hometown Throwdown, a series of 5 to 6 events in each region aimed at bringing the fun back into competition.
GENERAL PRINCIPALS OF THE THROWDOWN
This event is FUN! The goal of any Throwdown event is “to attract as many of your region’s paddlers and their non-paddling friends onto the water every month of the paddling season.” These events are very light and aimed at generating casual experience for both organizers and participants alike. Rewards are given out for participation only, no winner take all. Prizes will be awarded via draws and one main prize will be handed out at the end of the series for a combination of competitive prowess as well as participation.
