Whitewater Class I-II We will meet at Riverside Park in Elizabethton,TN behind the Ballpark at 3:00 P.M. Bi-weekly on Saturdays all summer!
This is a dam released river so please be prepared for very cold water by bringing warm gear to wear no matter how hot the weather is for your own safety against hypothermia (paddling tops, bottoms & shoes. No flip flops, crocks or cotton clothing).
Must have proper whitewater gear to go such as helmet, spray skirt, flotation & a Type III PFD along with a boat that is designed for whitewater. Contact Debbie if you need anything or have questions.
Also we stop for a break about half way so don’t forget your power snacks! We are usually off the water by 7:00 P.M. or so and then we can go for dinner in town. 🙂
