Spectator Information


March 17-19, 2017


St. Francis River (Class II – III), Millstream Gardens Conservation Area, Fredericktown, MO.(see map below)


Downriver Race will start at Fishermans Put-in at 5 pm. On Saturday racing begins at 9:30. On Sunday the races are scheduled to start at 8:30.


Spectator parking will be marked, and has access to a nice paved trail into the shut-ins. (see map below)

Best Place to Watch:

The best place to watch the Slalom racers is along the side of the river, near the Big Drop Rapid. It will be marked with our MC making announcements and a sales table of MWA T-shirts and merchandise. Expect to sit on rocks alongside the river, we do not recommend bringing lawn chairs.

What to Bring:

Coolers are ok to bring, so pack something to drink. The races are generally cold in the morning and warm up in the afternoon so dress accordingly. Sunscreen is always recommended as well.

Backup Weekend

In the case of very low water, we will reschedule the race to the following weekend, March 24-26th.
