Here is what is happening with the Mach One whitewater program in the next few weeks… a lot of exciting paddling. We hope you can join with us.
On May 8, a WTAJ reporter visited Sunnyside to interview Mach 1's own Alden Henrie about his U.S. Team Trial triumph in the Under-23 men's single canoe class, paddling career to date, and to get local on-the-water footage at Sunnyside Paddling Park.
The reporter anticipates to broadcast on Tuesday, May 14 during the 6 and 11 o'clock Channel 6 Sports News! If you miss the broadcast that day, she anticipates it will be online as well at WTAJ news (wearecentralpa.com).
