Adventure Sports Center International

McHenry, Maryland 21541

The Adventure Sports Center International facility, aka ASCI, is a man-made river channel, with pumped variable water levels and adjustable wave shapers, run by Matt Taylor, a two-time Whitewater Slalom Olympian in C-2. It's located in the very Western end of the state of Maryland, just 16 miles south of I-68. A full description of the site and several photos are contained in the bid document, see link below.
Although there is no camping allowed at the race site, there are numerous Campgrounds and other Lodging within just a few miles, (see "Area Accommodations" link below). There is a very limited number of free primitive camping spots at ASCI's Climbing Facility at Forked Run available on a first come first serve basis, (Check at Race HQ). The race site has full locker room facilities, including hot shower available to all competitors and volunteers. There are additional accomodations and things to do in the general area listed on the ASCI web site.
Competitors must be registered for the race and check in at Race HQ before putting on the water to practice as all competitors, in addition to wearing the required helmets and PFD's, are also required to wear "practice bibs" at all times while paddling at ASCI. The practice bibs must be turned in by competitors on Thursday in the late afternoon, at Race HQ, and exchanged for their assigned race bib or bibs. For exact times and schedule, check the on site competitors informaton board at Race HQ.
We hope to see you there...
