Hidden Meadow Ranch Hosts First-ever Championship Canoe Meet

Make HMR’s canoe races your new family tradition at Arizona’s premier luxury guest ranch

(GREER, Ariz.)-  Get ready. Set. Canoe!  Book your stay now to be part of Hidden Meadow Ranch’s first-ever Annual Championship Canoe Meet on July 27that Arizona’s premier luxury guest ranch in the White Mountains.

The Championship Canoe Meet promises to bring families together for a competitive and fun-filled day at the Hidden Meadow Trout Pond amidst the beautiful White Mountains scenery.  Barbecue, burgers and hot dogs will be served at the pond to celebrate the event.

Hidden Meadow Ranch’s canoe meet is also the perfect excuse to escape the heat of Arizona’s desert climes and be submerged in the cool temperatures of northeastern Arizona’s pine and aspen forests.

If you have never stepped foot into a canoe, this is the perfect way for outdoor enthusiasts to cross an item off their bucket list. From novice to professional, everyone can join in this fun (and potentially wet) set of races!

There will be four events which include a speed race straight across the pond; a parent/child relay race; a canoe tug-of-war competition; and the infamous ‘In and Out’ race! The ‘In and Out’ race consists of both team members having to jump out of their canoe and get back in them when the whistle goes off during the middle of the race. 

“Canoe races have been a long-time tradition at Hidden Meadow Ranch, so we decided to create an official event all of our guests can enjoy, either as participants or spectators,” said Jane Lenci, Hidden Meadow Ranch general manager.  “This family-oriented event will surely create lots of stories as well as fun memories for years to come.”
