"Speed paddling is the norm in this game. The fact that the ball is always "in play" results in non-stop paddling where blocks and steals can immediately reverse the direction of the play. Paddling 40 yards as fast as you can, or trying to out-maneuver a defender in the end zone 20-30 times, once a week will give you paddling power you never knew you possessed. Paddling endurance increases phenomenally. There are no eddies in boatball. A good boatball game with 8 -12 players for an hour or two will leave you more exhausted than any river paddling."

It will be the warmest game of the season so far. I will be there.

I'm out. Canoe is in the repair shop, aka my garage. That is of course assuming nobody needs a tandem partner.
