Update on the 2019 Canoe Race / Outdoorfest

The Board of Directors is sincerely disappointed to have to inform the public that the 2019 Marianna Canoe Race and Anything That Floats / Outdoorfest has been postponed this April due to unforeseen circumstances. This event has become our premiere event to highlight our fantastic waterways, fishery and historic community.  We are actively working out the details so we can bring this event back next year, as we know it has become a tradition for a lot of people.  For more information you can contact me at (412) 523-6816 or by email at moa.bryanschmidt@gmail.com Please visit our website www.mariannaoutdoors.com and Facebook page as we will be updating the information as it becomes available.

We are beyond grateful for all the support we have received over the years. Because of your support, we are able to achieve our mission of  educating our youth and giving back and honoring our veterans.  The MOA has been able to give back to our local area and residents in so many ways over the years including creating access areas open to the public with disabilities, providing opportunities otherwise unavailable to veterans, improving waterway habitat, implementing  numerous educational programs in various area school districts,  and shining a light on the true beauty and  potential that our communities have to offer.

The MOA and its directors would also  like to extend our deepest sympathy to the family of our dear friend and former president and co-founder, Mr. Ed Thomas.  He went to be with the Lord on March 14, 2019, after a long, hard-fought battle.  Mr. Thomas will forever hold a special place in each of our hearts and to all who knew him.

Thank you,

Bryan Schmidt

The idea of the MOA began circa 2005. Jason came to me with an idea to stock trout in our segment of Ten Mile Creek in Marianna.
