SATURDAY OCTOBER 7th.
RIVER RESCUE. Every year TVA sponsors a River Rescue clean up on land and on the water. TVCC will be running 2 stations. For more information, see the TVCC website at https://tvccpaddler.com/event/2671142/
SUNDAY OCTOBER 8th.
Charleston to Hwy 58 on the HIWASSEE RIVER. We’ll meet at 9 am at the Charleston ramp on the Hiwassee River for a 12-mile Flatwater paddle. We’ll run shuttle to the Hwy 58 bridge ramp and then put on. We’ll stop half way for a break at the B+B marina. You must be able to maintain a 3-mph pace and have a boat at least 12 feet long to do this trip. It is intended for paddlers who prefer a longer and faster paced paddle. This will be about a 5-hour trip plus drive time and shuttle.
I can lend you a boat if you need a longer one.
If interested email me by 4 pm on Friday 6th and check your email that night for details.
SUNDAY OCTOBER 29th.
N CHICK. LONGVIEW DR to TN RIVERPARK. This is basically a 7-mile Flatwater paddle with a few obstacles at the beginning on the new section of the N Chickamauga Creek. Meet at 10 am at the new Longview Dr. ramp. We will run shuttle and then paddle down to the TN River Park. If interested email me by 4 pm on Friday 27th and check your email that night for details.
You can’t control the wind, but you can adjust your sail.
