The week ahead – November 2nd

The doldrums of winter are starting. Only one event reminder for this week.

I’ll also remind everyone that we’re less than two weeks away from our trial of “something different,” the Fall EXPO on Saturday November 14th. A day of hiking, paddling, gear, food, learning, and fellowship. Help make this day a success by letting us know if you like the idea. The most clear way is to show up and participate but if you can’t make it, send us a message.

The Week Ahead – 6/6

Were you busy last weekend? Want some outdoors fun this weekend?

  • Paddle to the Grill on Thursday
  • Konnarock Crew all weekend – AT Maintenance doing a relo on Beartown Mt
  • Class I/II white water on Saturday
  • [[Carver%27s Gap to US19E|Carver’s Gap]] to Grassy Ridge on Sunday

That’s a busy weekend! Check out the Schedule for the details.

The Week Ahead – October 17th

You may be thinking that with Fall quickly approaching (or is it here already?) the activities will be slowing down. Well they have according to our schedule, except for our Fall Dinner this Friday of course. Rehash your summer adventures with friends and good food from Firehouse Restaurant. Stick around for (or come just for) Toney Scales as he discusses the Southwest Virginia Trilogy: Natural Tunnel, the Breaks, and Cumberland Gap. Details in the newsletter.

The Week Ahead – July 11th

Is it too hot for hiking? Would everyone prefer to be on the water instead? We have a lot of water events but only the reliable Colins Chew and his Friday Hikers doing a foot based event. We do rely on our members (any member) to organize and list events, so if you have an idea please email and we’ll work with you to arrange it and get it on the calendar.

  • Paddle to the Grill on Thursday
  • Friday Hikers
  • NOC Canoe Club Challenge on Saturday
  • Explore the Holston River (flat-water series) on Saturday
  • Watauga Class I-II on Saturday
