You have two and a half hours to find as many checkpoints as you can! The checkpoints are marked on a waterproof map. A special punch at each checkpoint proves you were there. Some checkpoints may be worth more than others, so strategy is important. Can you think and paddle at the same time? Most checkpoints can be visited by canoe or kayak, but a number will be located in the surrounding parkland.
