The General Clinton Hall of Fame is  a great tribute to paddlers and contributors that have supported the Clinton year after year.
The selection panel decided on 2 divisions, paddlers & contributors. 4 areas in no particular order were used to select paddlers. Victories, number of finishes, contributions to marathon canoeing, and contributions to the General Clinton. Selecting volunteers/contributors critera was based on years of service, fore-sight, dedication, and the willingness to take chances.
The induction ceremonies and dinner will be on Saturday evening May 26th 2018 at General Clinton Park, please see the event page for more details.
