John Schreiner was an innovator and an icon in the paddling industry as a boat builder, designer and rotomolder . One of his first accomplishments was to be one of the founders of the Fiddlers Elbow Slalom 43 years ago. Sadly, John passed away last June. This years race will be dedicated to his memory. We have special T-shirts using a logo from one of the kayaks made many years ago by John’s New Wave Kayak Company. John’s brother Paul will be there and we have another person from that long ago era who will be attending. Both were members of Harrisburg Area Whitewater Kayaks (HAWK), the founding club which dispersed circa 1977. We hope to see you there. Please come out and help us make this a special race.
