The Annual Not-NPFF Race - The Jess Cup

The annual Not-NPFF Downriver Race and Club Championship will be held Saturday February 20, 2021 on Elkhorn Creek. Race begins at 12:30 below the dam. You don’t have to compete to go down river – but dress warmly. The Not-NPFF race is not associated with NPFF, and no liability is assumed by NPFF or its volunteers. Hence, the Not-NPFF name.
