Scuff Gross Regatta

Saturday, July 17, 2021

Lifelong resident Scuff Gross served the Township of Riverside over 40 years and the Lions Club for over 65 years. He passionately loved being on the water. In his honor paddlers are invited to take part in kayaking the Des Plaines River and enjoying the natural resources throughout the Village of Riverside. 

Participants will meet at McCormick Woods. North East at 31st and 1st Ave. From there paddle south and wrap around the village, congregate at the Swan Pond area to regroup, then pass under the Swinging Bridge as a group. Exiting the River will take place at Stony Ford Canoe Landing 43rd & Oak in Lyons. The buddy system is suggested for both the water and transportation from the end point back to the starting point. Participants are responsible for their own equipment, safety, and following IDNR rules.

Those without watercraft are encouraged to spectate on bridges at Forest Ave, Barrypoint, and most scenic the Swinging Bridge. Please post photos to this page so they can be shared. Feel free to share this event and invite others.
