Deerfield RiverFest

July 14, 2015 by Jim Sullivan (comments: 0)

All three of the running sections of the Deerfield were abuzz with paddlers, and Zoar was no doubt in the middle of all the action going on. Zoar instructors and Team Z members Katelyn Green and Jim Sullivan enjoyed the beautiful day Saturday with all the other boaters on the river, and were there all afternoon to let passing boaters demo playboats from Jackson Kayak, Dagger, and Wavesport, including the new 2016 Jackson Rockstar.

DemoFest and some Western Mass Creeking

June 30, 2015 by Ben Natusch (comments: 0)

Demofest is one of my favorite events each year.  It is a great opportunity to connect with the local boating community and help everyone work to improve their skills while supporting many of the manufactures that Zoar represents.  Due to release times, the mornings generally take place on flatwater and/or fish flow river levels.  This allows us to focus on strokes, maneuvers, freestyle and more.  In the afternoon we have the release on both the Fife Brook Section of the Deerfield and on the Dryway.  Our afternoon clinics take advantage of the releases and focus on river running, rescue and river maneuvers and freestyle.

With the Pemi at the perfect level, and the weather being a little too hot to not be in the water, it was an easy decision to head over to the Pemi Park and Play for a little low water fun.

Paddling the Fife and a Visit from Tyler

May 19, 2015 by Ben Natusch (comments: 0)

The community at Zoar has always been one of my favorite parts of working there.  While Zoar staff members often move on and take jobs in other parts of the country, it is always great to reconnect when they come back to visit.  After finding out that Tyler, a long time raft guide and instructor, would be back in the area for a weekend I made plans to head out to the Deerfield to catch up and do some paddling.

I could've chosen to focus on the details and the soreness that I'm feeling after the race. But I think it's more important to show people that women have just as much ability to tackle the river as men do. And although there's not as many of us, we still make the same impact.
