To qualify as a BCS team, you must have at least 14 BCS team members with up to four support team members to fill out your team.

There will be fantastic food vendors this year, from breakfast to barbeque, drinks, etc. There will also be merchandise vendors with great items to purchase. Educational materials will be available about cancer.
Teams will be limited to 18 paddlers per race this year. A minimum of 10 team members should attend an on-water practice for a refresher for past participants and new paddlers are highly encourage to practice before the festival. This is for the safety of all participants.
