Hilltop Hoppers Canoe and Kayak Club


Mark your calendars-this year's Middleburgh Canoe/Kayak Race and Triathlon Weekend dates are April 13 and 14! Watch for details and some NEW and FUN activities😊🛶🚲🏃‍♀️
Chad won't be able to bring the boat trailer tomorrow because he has to work. If anyone can/wants to pick it up, let him or me know and we'll message our address. We'll be out of town next week as well. Thank you!
Are we still meeting tonight? I am on I 90 in Albany in a dead stop of traffic due to an intense thunderstorm.
Next Wednesday the 17th we will be kicking off the paddling season at Warner's Lake, it may be at a new location on the lake but not determined yet. Will send out a bulletin when and if there is a change in location.
Picture from Saturday's canoe race at Canton, NY. Second marathon race and me and Justin got this cool plaque for winning the recreation canoe 5mile race (wasn't a lot of competition in the recreation boats). We also did a 12-mile kayak race that was very challenging with some fast moving river water due to a lot of rain the week before, making it quite challenging. Was a lot of fun and we met some really nice people that were excited to see new kayakers.

HTH provides a safe and fun paddling experience for all ages. Learn to paddle for the first time, just have fun, or learn to race, we invite you join us.

[05/04/18]   Hoping to get hopping May 10th,2018 at Warners lake. Thats a thursday! We moved to thursdays to try avoiding conflicts with some other members activities. Will bring K2’s rec boats and some K1’s.


[05/31/17]   No paddling tonight (5/31/17) on account of lightning. So sorry, hope to see you Friday.

[05/16/17]   It looks like air and water temperatures are finally coming together. We look forward to seeing you all at Warner’s lake. We are bringing out the boats this Wednesday 5/17 at 5:30 PM. For now we will be in the same location as last year, the Osterhouse boat launch. This may change in the future to a location where we can keep the boats at the lake, so stay tuned.

For those who missed it, the Times Union's Jason Franchuk wrote an article on the Hoppers as a local venue to try the Olympic sport of sprint canoe and kayak.

timesunion.com Row, row, rowing your boat — canoe or kayak — is an Olympic sport, in case you didn't know. After coming in second place at the U.S. Trials for sprint canoe, the 36-year-old didn't make the team that competed at the Pan-American Olympic qualifier. Justin's brother, Chad, was introduced to the sport…
