–The 2017 MaCKRO Race Schedule is now online.  Additional  flatwater races (including the MaCKRO flatwater series) will be added in the coming months.

–The January 2017 MaCKRO Newsletter is available here!  The latest addition of the newsletter includes whitewater and flatwater reports as well as updates on USA Wildwater racing in Maine, the Penobscot Water Trail, Orono Paddlers, the proposed Skowhegan whitewater park, a message from our outgoing president, and more.

Those attending the Dec. 1 MaCKRO Annual Meeting affirmed a commitment to expand MaCKRO membership in 2017.  More members equals more people to share the fun with and more people to get involved in promoting the sport we love.  We hope you will join us!

After a series of digital portages and  workarounds, the Results Page has at long last been updated to include the Pushaw, Bashabez, Stillwater Championships, Ebb Tide, and more.
