The Santic Spring Splash Race
is on Sat. - March 28, 2015

POSTONED to May 2, 2015

The Race Committee has decided to postpone the Canoe/Kayak Race due to the excessive snow that borders the Scantic River. Safety for all the boaters, volunteers and Fire Dept. alike would be at a disadvantage at all major areas of concern.
Also parking issues were a concern for EMT's and Fire Dept's vehicles.

So we hopefully we will see you all on May 2, 2015 to
support our 24th annual "Take the Challange"
Scantic Spring Splash Race!
