BIG Little River Paddle Race (BLRPR)

The last Saturday in April.

[Banner BLRPR 2022]

Our first big event, started way back in 2013, a three-mile downstream course on the Little River to the Reed Bingham State Park Lake. First prize is $100, with strong competition, plus another $300 to anyone who beats the previous record. Or you can just paddle. Proceeds benefit WWALS.

Suwannee Riverkeeper Songwriting Contest

Late August, in the evening when it’s cool.


There should be more songs about the Suwannee River, or the Withlacoochee, Willacoochee, Alapaha, Alapahoochee, Little, New, Dead, or Gopher Rivers, Okapilco, Piscola, or other Creeks, the Okefenokee Swamp, Grand Bay, or springs, sinks, swamps, or ponds.

WWALS Boomerang paddle race

Late October, on the Withlacoochee River.


Some friendly cross-state-line rivalry, in a fun filled day of paddle racing and leisurely paddling on an idyllic blackwater river. Plenty of water, no deadfalls, plus shoals!
