Fort To Field 50 Paddle Battle

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

With nearly ninety competitors from as far away as Mississippi and the country of the Netherlands already registered the inaugural year of the Fort to Field 50 Paddle Battle appears to be primed for success. Organizer Jarrett Bies says the event is building on the success of the South Dakota Kayak Challenge to give participants an opportunity to enjoy the scenic beauty available in the thirty-nine mile stretch of the Missouri National Recreational River found between Fort Randall and Springfield, South Dakota. Bies says the field of racers is filled with people from South Dakota and Nebraska as well as a mother-son team coming from the Netherlands and one racer who is coming from Mississippi for the competition. Bies says the Fort to Field 50 Paddle Battle gets underway at 7 AM on July 19th at the Fort Randall Dam near Pickstown.
