For those of you not here last year we appointed Joe Mornini as the Grand Poobah of Kayak Football. He helped lead the charge in getting about 40 Veterans to Canton, Ohio to participate in the challenge. Each team has 5 players on the field during the game. Each game has two 10 minute half's and a 5 minute halftime. The majority of the Veterans were Team River Runner members from at least six states but we also had several Vets just show up and participate. We played a round robin, full contact, kayak football tournament. Team Ram Rod from Shepherds West Virginia eventually fell to the TRR team from Walter Reed in the championship. I'm sure both teams will be back to battle it out again this year.

The event does take place the same day as the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game and that game will be played at 8:00 that night. 

For those of you that were here last year we hope you can all make it back and bring even more Veterans with you!
